My mother gave me this picture for Christmas. It’s of my great-grandparents, Harry and Mabel Herrel, sitting in the summer sun. We think it was taken in the late 1950's. Don’t they look happy together?
Harry F. Herrel, born 29 November 1888 in Cincinnati, Ohio; married Mabel Seely on 12 October 1909 in Columbus, Ohio; died 3 July 1964 in Columbus.
Mabel Seely, born 22 July 1891 in Columbus; died 30 September 1975 in Millersport, Ohio. Five children: Herbert, Pauline, Frederick (my grandfather), Richard, and Robert Herrel. Pauline, the only girl, died on Christmas Eve at the age of three weeks. The four boys grew up to have families and enjoy long lives.
