Oregon woman seeks to return mementos to relatives of Perry man

An Oregon woman's search for the rightful owners of this photograph revived old family ties in the Perry area this weekend.

A photograph, apparently from the 1970s, is labelled: “Rick, Dan and Kevin Whisler.”

An Oregon woman has records — a scrapbook and photographs — belonging to the family of a Perry native born more than 90 years ago, and she seeks to return these items to the family.

Robert Paul Whisler was born in Perry, Iowa, on Jan. 18, 1928.

“Bob was married to my mother-in-law,” the Oregon woman said, “and when she passed, we inherited a scrapbook full of Bob’s family as well as an old photograph of the family’s homestead.”

Bob’s parents were Paul F. Whisler and Alberta Kathrine Reeves.

“I hate to throw away something that may be of value to Bob’s relatives,” the woman said. “And I’m in my 70s, so time is important.”

Anyone with information about the relatives of Robert Paul Whisler is asked to contact ThePerryNews.com at 515-661-7600.
