He was a member of the Grand Lodge of Illinois

This line is attached to my x-husband and best friend Brian Robert Rowley.

I tried to find this Kolar Estate I am assuming it's a place in Park Falls, WI. It may have been a resort of types or a place like in the movie Dirty Dancing, a Camp. They were a big thing throughout the United States. I did find  John Michael Kohler State Park, established in 1966, total 988 acres.  The park contain over two miles (3 km) of beaches and sand dunes along the shore of Lake Michigan, with woods and wetlands away from the water. The Black River flows through the parks.

Wherever this Kohler Estate was looks like the family had a great time.
