Six of the Zehler brothers - about 1870
from left:  Nicholas, Frederick, Charles, Frank and [Jacob and John]
This picture of the six youngest Zehler brothers was probably taken shortly before Frederick married Alice Perry and moved to Michigan. The identity of four of the brothers can be clearly established by comparison to other pictures, however, the identity of twins twins, Jacob and John, is not certain.  The only available picture of Jacob is in later life.  This, along with his youthful appearance above, does not permit a definite identification.  The comparison does, however, suggest that Jacob is the twin seated second from the right in the picture.
