I would love to get in touch with anyone who is related to this family. Byron Roher was a nephew of my great-great grandmother, Missouri Greenland Brown. My family lost touch with his family by the 1940s. We no longer know where any of them are living. I have some photos of Byron to share with his family. Please respond if you are related or know someone who is related. Thank you.

Thank you for the obit. They do help. My mother was a Roher.
I remember Mr Roher coming to my grandparents's house selling McNess products. I was a lot younger then. My grandparents decendants still get togather in spring (Huntingdon) and the end of Nov, in Saltillo. Some of the older cousins who still live in the are might know if any of his decendant still live in the area.
