Biography

Grace Reid Engler was born on 25 Jan 1875 in Adams Township, Seneca County, Ohio, United States of America. She was the daughter of William Engler and Marion Emaline Crockett.[1] She grew up in Green Springs, which is mostly within Adams Township, Seneca County, Ohio but parts of the village are also in Sandusky County, Ohio.[2][3]

Grace never married. In 1910, she lived with her sister Nettie's family in Green Springs, Ohio and worked as a stenographer in a grain office.[4] Around the time that the United States entered World War I, probably around 1918, Grace and her sister Maude began working for the government in Washington D.C. Grace worked for the U.S. Treasury Department for 25 years, retiring in 1943.[5][6] Grace and Maude lived together, along with Maude's son Robert Mohr, in Washington, D.C. for years.[7][8] In the late 1930's, Grace and Maude moved to Arlington, Arlington County, Virginia, right outside of Washington, D.C.[9]

Around 1946, Grace moved into the Elmwood Rest Home in Green Springs, Sandusky County, Ohio, where she had grown up. She died in the rest home about a year later at the age of 72 on 14 Jun 1947. She was buried in Green Springs Cemetery.[10][6]
