Was Solomon's wife Melinda? If so, I may have a photograph of Melinda and other members of this KALAR family. Please contact me.

Thanks,

Shelley,
I am interested in the picture you have of some Kalars. Where was it taken? Who are the people in the picture. My Kalar family came from W.V.

KALAR Family Photographs

I've "rescued" some old photographs of the KALAR of KALOR family including "Grandmother" Melinda KALAR, Ursal KALAR, and what could be Ursal's parents. All the photographs were taken in Watseka, Illinois or Onarga, Illinois, both in Iroquois County. I would guess that the photos were taken in the 1870's or 1880's. The two photos of Ursal KALAR include one when he was an infant and one when he is approximately 5 years of age. I would guess that Melinda KALAR was in her 50's at the time her photograph was taken, and the picture of a couple appears to be a wedding announcement type photo with the couple being in their 20's.

In addition to these photos I also obtained photographs from the same source which I believe belong to the COBB and PIERCE families. I'd like to find the family and return the photographs to their rightful place within the family being passed from generation to generation as they should be.

If you are a member of this family or know someone who might be, please contact me.

Thanks,
Shelley

Bruce,
We have a Solomon Kalar in our family tree. His middle name was William, and he was the son of Samuel D. Kalar and Mary Gray,who were married 11/12/1857. He was probably born in Tucker County, W.V. One of his granddaughters lives today in Indiana. I do not, however, have an Alice as one of his daughters. I have a Daisy, Bess, Dove, Mabel, and Ruth. Perhaps one of them went by Alice at one time. I have also found that, in this family as in others, there were several persons named exactly alike.

What year of birth do you have for your Solomon? If he was born in Tucker County, W.V. or Randolph County, VA., he probably is in our Kalar family.

Shelley--Melinda Kalar may be my gggrandmother--Malinda Kalar who was the wife of Solomon Kalar. Malinda Phillips Kalar was born on 13 Jan 1824 and died on 13 Nov. 1912 and is buried in Crescent City, Iroquois County, IL. She was married 24 Mar 1842 in Va. (now W.VA) to Solomon Kalar. She is buried in the Flesher cemetery in Crescent City. Solomon Kalar was born on 3 may 1820 in St. George, Tucker County, Va. (now W.VA) and died 25 April 1901 in Crescent City, Iroquois County, Illinois. If you think that this is the lady in the picture, please contact as I would like either the picture or a copy of it.

Beth--As you will note from my reply to Shelley, that while my Solomon Kalar is different from your Solomon Kalar it appears that they are related--perhaps my Solomon was Samuel D.'s brother or cousin since my Solomon was born in Tucker County in 1820. Please let me know what else you know about the Kalars.

Bruce,
We are, indeed, researching the same family. Harriet Jane Kalar who married Jasper Phares lived in St. George, W.V., before they moved to CA. I have quite a bit on the Kalars and would very much like to exchange information with you. My mother is one of four daughters born to John Dellas Kalar, b. 1885 in Tucker County, W.V.,m. Helen Winifred Turner,son of Jasper Kalar and Mary Jane Channel. I have been communicating with some Kalars in Canada and CA. and Indiana.
Please get back to me at: bethkwebb@hotmail.com so that we can exchange information.

Thanks, Beth

If and when you receive the pics from Shelly, I would like to get a copy of them. Perhaps you could scan them if you have the equipment. I'm sure that Beth Webb would also like a copy if she hasn't already asked.
