        The departed father, brother and friend, John Dobler, son of Christian Dobler and wife Dorothea, nee Handel, was born in Nesselrod, South Russia, on Nov. 6, 1875.  In his boy hood he came to the United States with his parents in the year 1885. They founded their home at Scottland, S. D., at that time known as “Dakota territory.”  After four years, in 1889, his mother passed away and the following year the family joined a group of pioneers who came to this part of Colorado to take up homesteads and thus started the “Settlement” as it is known today.  Through the efforts of Rev. Meyer, the first minister visiting the Settlement, the deceased received his religious instructions and was confirmed in the Lutheran church in 1891.  On Easter Sunday, April 1, 1899, he was united in marriage to Lena Stutz by Rev. Gebhardt Jansen and to this union seven children were born.  The only daughter, Lena, preceded her father in death in 1903.
