The story goes that after Earl Sr. left Louise with 4 children to raise somehow Louise ended up in Tampa, FL. with 4 children to raise. She worked as a housekeeper at the Wampler Boarding house. She meet Louis B. Mohler who was the brother to the owner and cook at the boarding house. When Louise and Louis decided to go to Jacksonville for new jobs, they took Earl Jr. and the baby Josephine with them and put Maud Edith and Leona Louise in the Tampa, Children's Home. It was 1930. So the two middle girls did not ever connect with their siblings again. My research has been done in memory of my mother Leona Louise Puterbaugh. I have connected with the Evans and Puterbaugh side of family.
