Mikler Family


In this studio photo, Joseph, Sr. and Katarina 'nee Strauch Mikler pose with their 10 children and two other gentlemen. Standing (left to right): Joe L. Mikler, Michael Mikler, ml. ("mladsi"-younger), Katherine (Katie) Mikler, Paul Mikler, John Duda, Sr. (future husband of Katie), Martin Stanko, young Anna Mikler, Steve Mikler. Seated: Andrew Mikler. John Mikler (son of Joseph and Katarina Mikler, touching shoulder of little sister, Betty), Katarina, Joseph, Sr., and Sue Mikler (standing to her father's left). Although the photo is not dated, it is likely that it was taken shortly before the marriage of Katie Mikler to John Duda (on June 24, 1928). Martin Stanko (also seen in the photo), was listed as one of the witnesses on the couple's marriage certificate; the other witness was the bride's brother, Steve. Young Johnny Mikler, afflicted with Down Syndrome, would live only a few more years. His death in 1933 was the first in the Slavia community and his grave was the first to be placed in the church cemetery. Sepia print, 8x11" scanned on Epson 10000 at SLLC, March, 2012.
