AF                           Samuel

                Samuel was the youngest and most prolific son.  His children were also prolific; Samuel's family is the largest branch of the Kistler family.

                Gravestones at JER show Samuel, 9/20/1754‑4/24/1822, and his (second) wife, Catherine nee Brobst, 12/16/1767‑3/26/1845. The DAR Patriot's Index also show Samuel's first marriage to Maria Elizabeth Ladich; papers at HSBC show that Maria Ladich was born 11/22/1761.  Based on baptismal entries for Samuel's children, his first wife must have died 1779‑1788.

                Samuel's children are as follows:

    

 Maria Barbara                   AFA

  Jacob S.              AFB

  Samuel                AFC

  Daniel                  AFD

  John S.                                 AFE

  Michael               AFF

  Catherine           AFG

  Maria Elizabeth                AFH

  Christian             AFI

  Magdalena                        AFJ

  Salome                AFK

  David                   AFL

  Jesse                                    AFM

  Charles               AFN

  Levi                                      AFO

 

 

AFA       Barbara (Maria Barbara)    

                JER records show Maria Barbara, born 8/26/1779, daughter of Samuel and Maria Elizabeth, godparents Michael and Maria Barbara Kistler (AD).  LCC shows that Barbara married Henry Sunday/Sontag and is buried at Dunkel's Church near Klinesville.  Death records from the Reading (PA) Adler at the HSBC show Maria Barbara Sontag nee Kistler, wife of Henry, died 6/11/1850, age 70/2/23.

 


AFB        Jacob S.

                Baptismal records have not been located, but gravestones at JER show Jacob S., 10/5/1781‑10/7/1849, and (third) wife Anna Barbara Bausch, 6/25/1790‑11/19/1867.  The LCC indicates that Jacob married three times: first to a daughter of William Carl (baptismal records give her name as Catherine); then to Catherine Bausch (with whom he had no children); and then to Anna Barbara Bausch.  HELF shows the marriage of Jacob and Catherine on 4/14/1807 and the marriage of Jacob and Barbara on 5/14/1809.  From these dates and from baptismal records, we can conclude that Jacob's first wife died about 1806 and his second wife died about 1808.

                Jacob's children are as follows:

    

 John                                       AFBA

 Jacob                                    AFBB

 Elizabeth             AFBN

 Anna Fanny                        AFBO

 Helena                  AFBP

 Charles                AFBQ

 

                 Lehigh county orphan court records in 1849 show Jacob's widow Anna Barbara and name all the above children with the exception of Joseph who probably died young without heirs.

                The 1900 Census records for Lehigh county show Lloyd, age 41 (born 4/1859); Mary, age 34 (born 5/1866); several children born after 1880; Lloyd's mother, Mary, age 69 (born 12/1830), and a nephew, Fred Weidelich, age 12 (see AFBMM below).

 

AFBMM Jennie

                The HLC describes Jennie as a daughter of David and Maria and shows her first marriage to Mr. Weidelich and her second marriage to Edwin Griesemer.  Jennie was born about 1861; at age 9, she appears in her father's household in the 1870 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.

 

AFBN                     Elizabeth

                Lehigh county (PA) orphan court records in 1849 dealing with the death of Jacob (AFB) identify Elizabeth as an heir.  Elizabeth was born about 1828.  At age 22, she appears in the household of her widowed mother, Barbara, in the 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  At age 31, she also appears in the household of her widowed mother in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county.            

                LCC indicates that Elizabeth was alive in 1884 and lived in Saegersville, PA.  Other records at HSBC show Elizabeth married Peter Steigerwalt and died 4/19/1882 -- but I believe this to be questionable and probably refers to Elizabeth (AFCA).

                Refer to the entry for Elizabeth's brother, Jonas (AFBK).  The 1900 Census records seem to show Elizabeth, age 71 (born 11/1828), in the household of her recently widowed brother.

 

AFBO                     Anna Fanny

                HELF shows Anna Fanny, born 1/24/1831, daughter of Jacob and Barbara, godparents David and Maria (AFL).  Also, Lehigh county (PA) orphan court records in 1849 dealing with the death of Jacob (AFB) identify Anna Fanny as an heir.  The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Anna Fanny, age 20, in the household of her widowed mother.

                LCC shows that she married Charles Lenhart and lived in Albany township, Berks county, PA. 


AFBP                      Helena

AFBQ                     Charles J.

                Birth records have not been located, but Lehigh county (PA) orphan court records in 1849 dealing with the death of Jacob (AFB) identify Charles as an heir.  At age 11, Charles appears in the household of his widowed mother in the 1850 Census records for Lehigh county.  At age 21, Charles appears in the household of his brother, David (AFBM) in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county.  The 1870 Census records show Charles, age 30; Mary, age 25; and son Anson, age 1.  Finally, the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Charles, age 40; Mary, age 35; Anson, age 11; and Edwin, age nine months. 

                Gravestones at JER show Charles J., born 1/14/1839, died 1/12/1899; and wife Mary nee Donat, born 11/24/1844, died 7/3/1913.

AFC                       Samuel

                Cemetery records for EBEN show Samuel, son of Samuel (AF), born 8/12/1785, died 9/18/1862; and Catherine nee Muller, born 5/13/1783, died 7/20/1860.  HELF shows that Samuel married Catherine in 8/1806.  HELF refers to 13 children from this union, but only twelve are known:

                Lehigh county (PA) orphan court records dealing with Samuel's estate list all the above children except William who probably died (without heirs) before his father.

                The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Samuel, age 64; Catherine, age 65; Stephen, age 21; and David, age 23.                  The 1860 Census records for Lehigh county show Samuel, age 71; Catherine, age 73; and David, age 32.

AFCC                    John S.

                EBEN baptismal records show John, born 6/29/1814, son of Samuel and Catherine, godparents Michael and Salome (AFF).  All other sources, however, show John's birth date as 1/29/1814.  EBRT and NEL show that John married Rebecca Koenig.

                Gravestones at EBEN show John S., born 1/29/1814, died 3/27/1882; and wife Rebecca, born 2/9/1819, died 12/31/1890.

                The 1880 Census records for Carbon county, PA, show John, age 32; Dora, age 31; James, age 7; Catherine, age 6; and Harry, age 4.  The 1900 Census records show John D., age 51 (born 10/1848); and Dora, age 51 (born 2/1849).

                FEG shows William and Maria Ann as the parents of John Henry, born 1/6/1876.  FEG also shows John Henry died on 10/31/1881 in Lehigh county, PA, while visiting from Kansas.  FEG gives the maiden name of William's wife as Maria Ann Loch.

                FEG shows William and Maria Ann as the parents of John Henry, born 1/6/1876.  FEG also shows John Henry died on 10/31/1881 in Lehigh county, PA, while visiting from Kansas.  The 1880 Census records for Saline county, KS, show John H., age 4, in his father's household.

 

AFCCGB              Catherine

                NEL shows Catherine as a daughter of William and Maria, born 3/14/1879.  There are no other records.  Catherine probably died in infancy since there is no trace of her in the 1880 Census records.

AFCCK                 Lewis Franklin

                EBEN baptismal records show Lewis Franklin, born (date unclear) son of John and Rebecca, no godparents listed.  Lewis, age two months, appears in his father's household in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  There is no further record.  Lewis probably died young.

 

AFCD                    David

                EBEN records show David, born 9/9/1815, son of Samuel and Catherine, godparents Daniel and Eva Grunwald.  EBEN cemetery records show David, born 9/9/1815, died 3/23/1863.  There is no indication that David ever married. 

                The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show David, age 23, in his father's household.  The 1860 Census records for Lehigh county show David, age 32, in his father's household.  In both cases, David's recorded age makes little sense -- he would have been 34 in 1850 and 44 in 1860.

 

AFCE                     Maria

AFCF                     William 

                HELF shows William, born 9/3/1821, son of Samuel and Catherine, godparents William Moser and Maria Miller.  William is not named in his father's will, an indication that he died without heirs sometime before 1862 (when his father died).

 

AFCG                    Lydia

                Neither birth nor death records have been located.  Lydia is named in her father's will as the wife as Michael Moser.

 

AFCH                    Catherine

                Neither birth nor death records have been located.  Catherine is named in her father's will as the wife of Conrad Ebert.

 

AFCI                      Samuel

                Birth records have not been located, but Samuel is named in his father's will.  He was probably born about 1812.  The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Samuel, age 38; Sarah, age 25; Anna, age 6; Julina (Angelina), age 4; Joseph, age 2, and William, age one month.

                Samuel moved from Lehigh county to adjoining  Schuylkill county sometime after 1850.  Schuylkill county (PA) probate records dated in 1857 show that Samuel died in 6/1857, leaving a widow, Sarah, and five children.  Later, his family may have returned to Lehigh county -- in 1864 the Lehigh county orphan court records show a petition by the children of Samuel (deceased).  This petition names Samuel's widow, Sally, and children: Edwin Lewis and Caroline (both under 14); Joseph and Angelina (both over 14); and William (whose age was not categorized).  Apparently, Anna, the oldest child, had died young (before 1857) since the Schuylkill county probate records refer to Samuel's five children, and these are all named in the Lehigh county petition. 

                The death certificate of son William shows his mother's maiden name as Hartung.  It is interesting to note that Samuel's property in Schuylkill county adjoined the property of Michael Hartung  -- probably his brother-in-law.

                I have not located Samuel's family in the 1860 Census records, but the 1870 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, show Sarah, widow, age 35 (sic); Joseph, age 21; William, age 19; Edwin, age 17; Angelina, age 15 (sic); and Caroline, age 13 (sic).  The 1880 Census records for Carbon county, PA, show Sarah, age 56, in the household of her son, Joseph.

                The 1900 Census records for Luzerne county, PA, show Joseph, age 51 (born 6/1848); Fyetta, age 42 (born 10/1857); Ross, age 22 (born 3/1878); Minnie, age 20 (born 1/1880) (sic); and one other child born after 1880.

AFCJF                    Caroline

                Caroline, age 18, appears in the 1870 Census records for Slatington, Lehigh county, PA, in the household of Daniel (AFCJB).  Although there is no proof, Caroline is probable a sister to Daniel.

 


AFCJG                   Charles

                The HLC describes Charles who was born 2/5/1857 at Weissport, Carbon county, PA, the son of Daniel and Catherine nee Everett.  The HLC reports that Charles lived in Schuylkill county until 1883, then moved to Slatington, Lehigh county, PA, and later still to Allentown, Lehigh county.  The HLC further shows that Charles married Catherine Ann Miller on 6/4/1877; they had seven children, including Ella Amanda and Lillian Irene.

                The 1870 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, show Charles, age 13, in the household of Samuel Correll and his wife.  The 1900 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, show Charles, age 43 (born 2/1857); Kate, age 50 (born 3/1850); married daughter Ella Ritter, age 21 (born 11/1878); daughter Lillian, age 20 (born 3/1880); and several other children born after 1880.

 

AFCJGA                Ella Amanda

                The HLC describes Ella Amanda as a daughter of Charles and Catherine.  Records of the High German Reformed and Evangelical Lutheran Church, West Penn township, Schuylkill county, PA, show Ella Amanda, born 11/30/1878. 

                The HLC also shows Ella married Martin M. Ritter.  The 1900 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, show Ella Ritter, age 21 (born 11/1878) in her father's household.

 

AFCJGB                Lillian Irene

                The HLC describes Lillian Irene as a daughter of Charles and Catherine.  The HLC also show that Lillian married Irvin Snyder.

                The 1900 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, show Lillian, age 20 (born 3/1880) in her father's household.

 

AFCK                     Stephen S.

                Stephen is named in his father's will.  FEG shows Stephen, son of Samuel and Catherine, born 3/31/1824, died 5/21/1886.  EBEN cemetery records also show Stephen S., born 3/31/1824, died 5/21/1886.

                Both FEG and NEL show that Stephen married Alice J. Diehl in 10/6/1861.  Alice appears to be Stephen's second wife.  In 1846, EBEN baptismal records show that Stephen and Matilda sponsored a child (AFCCE) of Stephen's brother John (AFCC). 

                The Census records for Stephen are confusing since his age appears to be consistently incorrect.  The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Stephen, age 21, in his father's household.  The 1860 Census records for Lehigh county show Stephen, age 30, in a household adjoining his father.  The 1870 Census records for Lehigh county show Stephen, age 40; and Alice, age 27.  Finally, the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county show Stephen, age 48; and Alice, age 40.

 

AFCKA                  Jonas

                EBEN baptismal records show Jonas, son of Stephen and Alice, born 5/2/1863, godparent Mrs. Daniel Moyer (Eliza nee Kistler -- AAAEAD).  Jonas probably died young since FEG, in reporting his father's death in 1886, notes that Stephen and Alice had no children.

 

AFCL                     Elmira

                Elmira is named in her father's will as Elmira Druckenmiller.


AFD                        Daniel S.

                Gravestones at Immanuel Church (IMM), Mantz, Schuylkill county, PA, show Daniel S., born 2/21/1800, died 6/28/1866; and  Magdalena nee Moser, born 7/11/1804, died 4/1/1861. 

                Both the HLC and SCP contain detailed narratives of Daniel and his descendants.  In particular, SCP describes Daniel, born 2/21/1800, died 6/28/1866; his wife, Magdalena, born 7/12/1804 (sic), died 4/1/1861.  These are essentially the same dates as shown on the gravestones at IMM.  In conflict with these dates, however, JER records show Daniel, born 5/27/1789, son of Samuel and Catherine, godparents Matthew and Elizabeth Brobst.   

                Although it may seem improbable, it appears that the infant (Daniel) born in 1789 died  -- and another child, born in 1800, was given the same name.  The 1790, 1800 and 1810 Census records for Daniel's father, Samuel (AF), seem to support Daniel's birth in 1800 rather than 1789. 

                Daniel's birth date of 1800 is certainly consistent with the age of Daniel as shown in later Census records.  The 1850 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, show Daniel, age 50; Magdalena, age 45; David, age 18; Esther, age 14; Fianna, age 12; and Catherine, age 7.  The 1860 Census records for Schuylkill county show Daniel, age 60; Mary, age 56; Fianna, age 20; and Catherine, age 16.

                As already noted, both the HLC and SCP contain detailed narratives of Daniel and his descendants.  His children are shown as:  Charles (married Elizabeth Peters); Daniel (married Catherine Whetstone); John M. (married Mary Moser); David (married Mary Mantz); Noah (married Sarah Moser); Hetty (married David Zehner); Fianna (married Rev. Daniel Yingst); and Catherine (married Rev B.F. Bohner).

 

AFDA                     Charles M.

                The 1870 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, show Charles, age 46; Eliza, age 46; James, age 20; Sarah, age 17; Carrie, age 12; Lizzie, age 9; and Abraham, age 7.

                The 1900 Census records for Slatington, Lehigh county, show James, age 50 (born 5/1850).

AFDAC                 Sarah E.

                Sarah, age 7, appears in her father's household in the 1860 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA.  The 1870 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Sarah, age 17, in her father's household.  The HLC gives her name as Sarah E. and shows that she married L.M. Mertz.

                Daniel's will is filed in Schuylkill county, PA, and identifies his widow Catherine and the following children:  Thomas; Daniel; Amanda; Absolom; Albert (Noah Albert); Frank; Annie; Ida; Erma; Charles; and Estell.  Another son, Emmanuel (AFDBG), probably died in infancy.

                The 1850 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, show Daniel, age 23; Catherine, age 20; and Thomas, age one month.  The 1860 Census records for Schuylkill county show Daniel, age 34; Catherine, age 32; Thomas, age 10; Daniel, age 8; Amanda, age 7; Absolom, age 5; Noah, age 5; and Frank, age 3.

                The 1870 Census records for Schuylkill county contain Daniel and his family, but the name and ages are completely jumbled.  The entry shows Daniel, age 30; Mary, age 30; Daniel, age 14; Thomas, age 12; Albert, age 10; Absolom, age 10; Frank, age 8; Amanda, age 6; Catherine, age 4; Emma, age 2; and Joseph, age 1.                  The 1880 Census records for Schuylkill county show Daniel, age 54; Catherine, age 52; F.A., age 23; Ida, age 17; Emma, age 15; Charles, age 13; and Estella, age 9.

                NEL shows Sylvester J., born 4/9/1851, died 10/8/1872; this is erroneous -- these dates seem to be incorrect data for Sarah Ann (AFIBC).

 

AFIBC                   Sarah Ann

                HELF shows Sarah Ann, born 4/9/1851, died 10/8/1852, daughter of David and Lavina nee Seibert.  However, EBEN cemetery records show Sarah A., born 4/9/1851, died 10/8/1872 (sic).  Since Sarah Ann does not appear in the 1860 Census in her father's household, I suspect the 1852 date is correct.
