AL                           John

                John's  birth date is uncertain; Kistler family papers at the Historical Society of Berks County (HSBC) mention a date of 1757.  Kistler family papers also at HSBC show that John was confirmed by Rev. Schumacher in 1767, indicating a birth date about 1750.  Elaine D. Schwar, writing in the Berks County Genealogical Society publication, (BCGS), shows John's birth about 1752.  John's death may be inferred from Lehigh county records which show his will (dated 1817) was probated on 06/12/1819.

                John married Eva Maria Wiederstein, daughter of Johann Heinrich and Anna Maria Wiederstein.  Her birth on 4/8/1750 is recorded in the Wiederstein family Bible on file at the Lehigh County Historical Society in Pennsylvania.  BCGS shows the maiden name of John's wife as Eva Maria “Witterstein”.  Records of Rev. Helffrich refer to John and Eva (nee “Widerstein”) as the parents of Maria (ALA) and Conrad (ALB). 

                Kistler family papers at HSBC mention Eva “Widerstein” as the wife of John and indicate the Eva died in 1850 ‑‑‑ this is undoubtedly an incorrect death date since there is evidence that John had a second wife, Catherine, who received a settlement from John's estate after his death in 1819. 

                John's children are as follows:

 

                                Maria Barbara                    ALA                        born 12/15/1777

                                Conrad                 ALB                        born 10/01/1786

                                Michael                                 ALC                       born 10/14/1781

                                Henry                                    ALD                        born about 1780

                                Susanna                ALJ                         born 02/12/1794

                                Salome                                  ALK                        born 03/13/1805

                                Unnamed son                      ALL                        born 04/07/1781

                                Unnamed daughter           ALM                       born 02/25/1785

 

                For many years, I was mistaken about John (AL); I believed him to be the son of John (B).  In fact,  John (AL) is the son of George (A).  This is evident from EBEN baptismal records; from the will of Barbara Kistler, widow of John (B); and from a petition filed on behalf of John (BE):

 

                1.  EBEN baptismal records clearly show the existence of John (AL), son of George (A) Kistler and his wife Dorothera.  The EBEN baptismal record for John (ALE) shows Dorothea (AH) as a sponsor.  The EBEN baptismal record for Eva (ALH) shows George (A) and his wife Dorothea as sponsors.  And the EBEN baptismal record for Maria Magdalena (ALG) show Michael Moser and his wife Maria Barbara (AG) as sponsors.  The rationale for these sponsors can best and most simply be explained by accepting that John (AL) is a son of George (A) and, thus, brother to Dorothea (AH) and Maria Barbara (AG).

 

                2.  Yet another reason has to do with the will of Anna Barbara, widow of John (B).  John Kistler and his wife Barbara did have a son named "John", but not John (AL) -- refer instead to John (BE).

                 Barbara's will names her sons: John George, William, Jacob, Abraham, and John -- in that sequence.  I believe she named her sons in the order of birth.  Since it is known that Abraham was baptized at the age of nine weeks by Rev Schumacher in February of 1762, it can be deduced that Abraham was born in late December 1761.  Thus, Barbara's son John must have been born later -- sometime between late 1762 and the death of his father about 1772.

                We also know that Rev. Schumacher confirmed "John" in 1767.  It is not likely he would have confirmed a child of five or six.  Thus, it is unlikely that the child he confirmed was the son of John (B) and Anna Barbara  -- rather, the child Schumacher confirmed must have been the son of George and Dorothea -- that is, John (AL), born about 1752.

 

3.       More significantly, on August 10, 1784, John Kistler, "a minor above the age of fourteen

years, one of the children of John Kistler, late of Albany township in Berks county .." petitioned the Justices of the Orphans Court held at Reading to permit him "to make of choice of some proper person as guardian to take care of his person and estate according to law".  (I am indebted to Bruce Kistler for unearthing this petition.)

                Since the petition is dated in 1784 and since John was a minor above the age of 14, he must have been born between 1763 and 1770.  This fits exactly with John (BE), son of John (B) and Barbara – and does not fit with John (AL), son of George and Dorothea.

 


ALA                        Barbara (Maria Barbara)

                The personal and pastoral records of Rev. John Henry Helffrich 1790-1810 and Rev. John Helffrich 1816-1892, Berks and Lehigh counties, PA, (HELF), show the death of Maria Barbara Schneider nee Kistler, daughter of John Kistler and Eva nee Widerstein.  Barbara's birth is shown as 12/15/1777, her marriage as 1/6/1796, and her death as 6/9/1859.  The dates for her husband, John Schneider, are given as 2/2/1774 - 8/12/1840.

                Cemetery records for Ebenezer church, New Tripoli, PA, (EBEN), show M. Barbara Schneider nee Kistler, wife of John Schneider, born 12/15/1777, died 8/2/1840 (sic).

 

ALB                        Conrad

                HELF shows Conrad, son of John and Eva nee Witterstein, born 10/1/1786, died 9/21/1859, married to Sarah Stein for 24 years, fathered eleven children.  EBEN cemetery records confirm Conrad's dates and show Sarah's dates as 10/31/1789 - 2/11/1836.  The History of Lehigh County, PA, (HLC), describes Conrad and his descendants.  Of the eleven children mentioned by HELF, nine are known:

 

                                Catherine                             ALBA

                                Abraham                              ALBB

                                Elizabeth                              ALBC

                                Maria                                     ALBH

                                Phaon                                    ALBI

               

                The 1850 Census records for Lynn township, Lehigh county, PA, show Conrad, age 63; Catherine, age 36; Sally, age 20; and David, age 23.

                               

ALBA                     Catherine

                EBEN cemetery records show Catherine, 3/19/1813 - 1/10/1888, unmarried daughter of Conrad.  Catherine appears in her father's household in the Lehigh county, PA, Census records for 1850.  She also appears in the Lehigh county Census records for 1860, 1870, and 1880.

 

ALBB                     Abraham

                Kistler family records at HSBC show Abraham, son of Conrad, 9/28/1815 - 2/28/1891; his wife is shown as Regina Sittler, 5/13/1821 - 9/19/1905.  The HLC describes Abraham as a son of Conrad and names his children -- Levi and Medina.

                The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county show Abraham, age 34; Regina, age 29; Levi, age 7; and Medina, age 3.  In 1860, the Census records for Lehigh county show Abraham, age 45; Regina, age 38; Levi, age 17; Medina, age 14; and Charles (ALBDA -- a nephew), age 9. 

                The 1870 Census records for Lehigh county show Abraham, age 54; Regina, age 40; Medina, age 24; Levi, age 27; and his family, Violette, age 24; Elmira M., age 5; James W., age 3; and George A.G., age 1.

ALBBA  Levi

                The HLC describes Levi as the son of Abraham; Levi's wife is shown as Violetta Wehr.  EBEN cemetery records show Levi, 1/13/1843 - 3/20/1890, and Violetta, 1/25/1846 - 3/18/1888 (another source, Genealogical Findings in the Allemangel Area of Berks and Lehigh Counties, PA, shows her death on 5/18/1888).

                Levi appears in the 1850, 1860 and 1870 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, in his father's household.  The 1880 Census records for Lehigh county show Levi, age 37; Violetta, age 34; Elmira, age 15; James, age 13; George, age 11; Oscar, age 9; Laura, age 7; Estella, age 4; Howard, age 2; and Gertie, age four months.

 

ALBBAA               Elmira

                The 1870 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Elmira, age 5, in her grandfather's household.  The 1880 Census records for Lehigh county show Elmira, age 15, in her father's household.  The HLC indicates that Elmira married John Mosser.

 

ALBBAB                James W.

                The HLC indicates that James married Ida Peters.  James, age 3, appears in the 1870 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, in his grandfather's household.  The 1880 Census records for Lehigh county show James, age 13, in his father's household.                                

                The 1900 Census records for Lehigh county show James W., age 33 (born 10/1866); his wife, Ida, age 34 (born 1/1866); and four children born after 1880.

 

ALBBAC               George A.C.

                The 1900 Census records for Lehigh county show G.A.G. Kistler, age 31 (born 9/1868); Mary, age 31 (born 9/1868) (sic); and one son born after 1880.  George is listed as the son-in-law of John Oswald.

                Gravestones at EBEN show George, 9/27/1868 - 4/23/1936, and his wife, Mary A. Snyder, 9/30/1860 - 4/5/1947.  I am unable to reconcile Mary's maiden name as shown on her gravestone to the 1900 Census entry.

Henry S. Fegley, 1874-1906, Berks and Lehigh counties, PA, (FEG), gives her name as Laura Agnes.

                Laura, age 7, appears in her father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.

                Howard, age 2, appears in his father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  The 1900 Census records for Lehigh county show Howard E., age 21 (born 4/1879) (sic); wife Emma, age 23 (born 5/1877); and one child born after 1880.

 

ALBBAH               Gertrude

                The HLC describes Gertrude as the daughter of Levi and identifies her husband as Charles Snyder.  NEL shows her birth as 1/25/1880, and FEG gives her name as Gertrude Violetta.

                Gertrude, age four months, appears in her father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA. 

 

ALBBAI                 Arthur

                The HLC describes Arthur as the son of Levi.  He may have been born after 1880 since his name does not appear in the Census records for that year.  Indeed, HOLL shows his birth date as 11/24/1882.

 

ALBBAJ                 John Sherman

                One source, NEL, shows John Sherman, son of Levi, born 12/5/1877.  There is no other information; he may have died as an infant.

 

ALBBB                   Medina

                The HLC describes Medina as the daughter of Abraham and identifies her husband as Phaon Bachman.  The private records of Rev. A.O. Ebert, 1906-1934, Berks and Lehigh counties, PA, (EBRT), show Medina, 6/21/1846 - 12/11/1923, and her marriage to Phaon Bachman on 12/23/1865.  EBRT shows that Phaon was born 8/31/1856 and died 9/29/1920.

                Medina appears in her father's household in the 1850, 1860, and 1870 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.

 

ALBC                     Elizabeth

                EBEN cemetery records show Elizabeth, 8/4/1817 - 9/29/1902, unmarried daughter of Conrad.  In 1850, at age 25, Elizabeth appears in Lehigh county, PA, Census records.  In 1860, at age 41, she appears in Lehigh county Census records.  In 1870, at age 49, she appears in Lehigh county Census records.  Finally, at age 62, Elizabeth appears in Lehigh county 1880 Census records.

 

ALBD                     John/Josiah/Joshua/Jesse

                HELF shows John, 3/5/1821 - 3/25/1859, and notes his burial on 3/27/1859; John is identified as the son of Conrad and Sarah; HELF also describes his marriage to Caroline Hausman on 3/31/1844 and mentions eight children. 

                Cemetery records for EBEN show Joshua, born 3/5/1821, died 4/14/1859, as well as wife Caroline, born 8/20/1826, died 8/22/1889.

                The HLC describes John, wife Caroline, and mentions six children by name; John's death is shown erroneously as 1861.  The Portrait and Biographical Records of Lehigh, Northampton and Carbon Counties, PA, (PBRL), also mention Josiah and his son, Charles, and erroneously suggests Josiah's death in 1861.

                The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Jesse, age 29; Caroline, age 24; Wilson, age 5; and Lewis, age 2.  The 1860 Census records for Lehigh county show his widow, Caroline, age 33; Wilson, age 15; Lewis, age 12; Mary, age 7; Edwin, age 6; Amandus, age 3; and Henry, age 2.  Another child, Charles, age 9, is with his uncle, Abraham (ALBB).

ALBDA                  Charles H.

                Both the PBRL and the HLC describes Charles H., son of Josiah and Caroline, born 11/23/1850, married Mary C. Anthony.  Charles, age 9, appears in the household of Abraham (ALBB) in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  He appears on his own, age 19, in the 1870 Census records for Lehigh county.  The 1880 Census records for Lehigh county show Charles, age 29; Mary, age 29; Howard, age 6; George, age 4; and C.H., age 1.

                The 1900 Census records for Lehigh county show Charles, age 49 (born 11/1850); Mary, age 49 (born 10/1850); George, age 24 (born 12/1875); and several children born after 1880.

 

ALBDAA               Howard

                Howard, age 6, appears in his father's household in the 1880 Census for Lehigh county, PA.

 

ALBDAB               George

                George, age 4, appears in his father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  The 1900 Census records for Lehigh county show George, age 24 (born 12/1875) in his father's household.

 

ALBDAC               Charles F.

                Cemetery records for Heidelberg Church, Lehigh county, PA, (HEDL), show Charles F., son of Charles H. and Mary, born 6/12/1879, died 11/20/1881.  The 1880 Census records for Lehigh county show "C.H.", age 1, in his father's household.  

             

ALBDB  Wilson H.

                EBEN baptismal records show Wilson, born 4/8/1845, son of Jesaias and Karline nee Hausman Kistler.  PBRL and HLC also describe Wilson. 

                EBEN cemetery records show Wilson H., 4/8/1845-1/5/1913, and wife Sophia, 4/13/1848-5/3/1888.  EBRT shows these same dates and also the marriage of Wilson to Sophia Bloss on 5/30/1869.

                Wilson appears in his father's household in the 1850 and 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  The 1870 Census records for Lehigh county show Wilson, age 25, and Sophia, age 22. 

                The 1880 Census records for Lehigh county show Wilson, age 35; Sophia, age 32; Ervin E., age 10; Montana, age 7; Luella, age 4; and Minnie A., age 2.  The 1900 Census records for Lehigh county show Wilson H., age 55 (born 4/1845); and son Stanley, age 14 (born 1/1886).

 

ALBDBA               Louella Annette

                FEG shows the birth of Louella Annette, daughter of Wilson and Sophia, on 11/19/1875.  At age 4, she appears in her father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.

               

ALBDBB                Irwin (Ervin E.)

                Irwin, age 10, appears in his father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  The 1900 Census records for Lehigh county show Irwin, age 29 (born 8/1870); wife Villian, age 30 (born 1/1870); and one child born after 1880.

 

ALBDBC               Montana

                Montana (female), age 7, appears in her father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.

 

ALBDBD               Minerva

                Minnie, age 2, appears in her father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  The 1900 Census records for Erie county, NY, show Minerva, age 22 (born 01/1878), single.  The records indicate that she and her parents were born in Kentucky, but this is improbable.

 

ALBDC                  Lewis H.

                Both PBRL and HLC mention Lewis, and he is shown in his father's household in the 1850 and 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  NEL describes his wife as Lucy Ann and mentions one child, Agnes Caroline, born 12/14/1873.

                The 1880 Census records for Lehigh county show Lewis, age 32; Lucy, age 28; Agnes, age 6; Anna M., age 4; and Eugene M., age 2. 

                The 1900 Census records for Sedwick county, KS, show Lewis H., age 51 (born 7/1848); Lucy A., age 47 (born 9/1852); Eugene, age 22 (born 9/1877); married daughter Anna Longsdorf, age 23 (born 11/1876); and two other children born after 1880.  Census records show that Lucy was mother to nine children, six of whom were living at the time of the Census.

 

ALBDCA               Agnes Caroline

                NEL shows the birth of Agnes Caroline, 12/14/1873.  She is shown, age 6, in her father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.

 

ALBDCB               Anna M.

                Anna, age 4, is shown in her father's household in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  At age 23 (born 11/1876), she is also shown in her father's household in the 1900 Census records for Sedwick county, KS; her married name is given as Longsdorf.         

 

ALBDCC              Eugene M.

                Eugene, age 2, is shown in his father's household in the 1880 Census for Lehigh county, PA.  At age 22 (born 9/1877), he is also shown in his father's household in the 1900 Census records for Sedwick county, KS.

 

ALBDCD               Harry H.               

Born 9/1886; he appears in his father's household in the 1900 Census.

ALBDCD               Illegible

Born 7/1897; he appears in his father's household in the 1900 Census.

 

ALBDD                  Henry H.

                Both the PBRL and the HLC mention Henry, and the HLC places him in Kansas with his brother Lewis (ALBDC).  At age 2, Henry appears in his father's household in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA; and at age 11, in his father's household in the 1870 Census records for Lehigh county.

 

ALBDE                  Mary

                Both the PBRL and the HLC mention Mary and describe her marriage to Daniel Tyson.  Mary, age 7, appears in her father's household in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, and at age 17 in the 1870 Census records for Lehigh county.

                EBEN gravestones show Mary A. Tyson, 9/24/1854 - 6/24/1919, and EBRT confirms these dates.  However, NEL shows Mary's birth as 9/24/1852 -- based on Census records, this seems more likely.

 

ALBDF                   Edwin

                Edwin, age 4, appears in his father's household in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  EBEN cemetery records show Edwin, 1851-1869, son of Joshua and Caroline.  The 1851 date is probably a copy error.

 

ALBDG                  Caroline (Carline)

                EBEN baptismal records show Carline, born 2/26/1846, daughter of Jesias and Karline.  She is not mentioned either by PBRL or HLC, and she does not appear in any Census records.  She probably died as an infant.

 

ALBDH                  Amandas

                EBEN baptismal records show Amandas, born 9/23/1856, son of Jesse and Carline nee Hausman.  At age 3 he appears in his father's household in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, and at age 13 in the 1870 Census records for Lehigh county.

 

ALBE                     David G.

                HELF shows the birth of David, son of Conrad and Sarah, on 4/18/1824.  NEL states that David married twice -- first, Triphine Hunsicker then, Mary Hunsicker.

                The Wiederstein family Bible shows that a son, Johann Michael, was born to John and Eva on 10/14/1782.  He was baptized on 11/10/1782; godparents were Michael Messer and Barbara.  Also, Kistler family papers at HSBC describe Michael, 10/14/1781(sic) - 1/4/1867, brother of Conrad (ALB). 

                Michael married Maria (Mary) Magdalena Hoppes, 10/16/1785 – 8/11/1852.  The publication, Seneca county, Ohio, (SCO), describes Michael and Mary nee Hoppes and shows seven children, as follows:

                                Nathan                                  ALCG

                                Monroe                 ALCC

 

                SCO states that Michael moved from Pennsylvania to Ohio about 1832.  The 1850 Census records for Seneca county, OH, show Michael, age 69, and Polly, age 67.  The 1860 Census records show Michael, age 77, in the household of his son Nathan (ALCG).

                I am indebted to Ellen Weber (www.geocities.com/Athens/Styx/5408) for providing a great deal of the corrected information dealing with Michael (ALC) and his family.

 

ALCA                    Judith

                EBEN baptismal records show Judith, born 12/18/1812, daughter of Michael and Maria Magdalena (godparents, Michael and Mary Magdalena Hoppes).  SCO shows Judith married William Evert and died at age 48.

 

ALCB                     Joseph

                EBEN baptismal records show Joseph, born 1/10/1815, son of Michael and Maria Magdalena.  SCO shows Joseph died in Adams county, OH, at age 82.  Weber shows his death on 2/2/1899.

                Joseph married twice.  On 5/22/1836 he married Elizabeth Payne.  Elizabeth apparently died about 1854.  Weber shows that Joseph then married Catherine Margaret Shawbury on 9/11/1855.   Latter Day Saint (LDS) records confirm this, showing that Joseph married Catherine "Schabesy".  In other records her last name is spelled various ways -- Shawberry or Shaberg.

                The 1850 Census records for Seneca county, OH, show Joseph, age 35; Elizabeth, age 36; Josiah, age 12; Sarah, age 10; Amanda, age 8; Elizabeth, age 5; and Lafayette, age fourteen months.

                The 1860 Census for Seneca county, OH, shows Joseph, age 44; Catherine, age 30; Jesse, age 22; Elizabeth, age 14; Lafayette, age 11; Mary, age 4; Edward, age 2; Nathan, age ten months.

                Weber shows that Joseph and his wife (Catherine) had a daughter, Catharina, born about 1856; apparently she died young, before the 1860 Census.  Weber also shows that Joseph and his wife had another daughter also named Catharina, born about 1860, died about 1862. 

                Also, Weber shows that Joseph and his wife had a son, Levi, born about 1856, died 12/23/1865; I suspect that Levi was probably born in the early 1860s since he is absent from the 1860 Census records.

 

ALCBA                  Josiah (Jesse)

ALCD                    John T.

                Kistler family papers at HSBC describe John, 8/18/1806 - 7/14/1876.  Information from Walter Rogers (113 Aster Court SW, Pataskala, OH) shows that on 7/25/1824 John Kistler married Eva Breisel/Brish.  Other sources show her name as Eva Breisch.  Eva was born 3/17/1805 in Schuylkill county, PA.

                The History of Seneca county, Ohio, (HSO), describes John and several of his children and states that John settled in Seneca county in 1833.  HSO shows that John died 7/14/1870 at age 66 (suggesting a birth date of 1804) and that Eva died 1/8/1878 at age 72.  Weber shows that John was born 9/14/1805 and died 7/14/1870. 

                The 1850 Census records for Seneca county, OH, show John, age 46; Eve, age 46; Polly, age 21; Monroe, age 21; Monroe's wife, Catherine, age 20; Sarah, age 15; and John, age 5.  The 1860 Census records for Seneca county, OH, show John T., age 56, and Eve, age 56.

                Weber shows that John and Eva had children as follows:  John August, Philip, and Solomon (born 1834).

                With regard to John August, this is probably “John” as shown in the 1850 Census  records, born about 1845. 

                With regard to Philip, there are no alternatives to suggest except that he probably died young. 

                With regard to Solomon, there is a more involved explanation.  Perhaps John and Eva did have a child named Solomon.  If so, I believe their child died young.  The Solomon shown in Census records for Seneca county is, I believe, actually the nephew of John – refer to Solomon (ALDD).

                In brief, John had a brother,(no, an uncle) Henry (ALD), and three of his sons did move to Seneca county – Henry (ALDA), John (ALDG) and Solomon (ALDD).  Solomon (ALDD) was born 10/6/1824  which is a perfect match for the Seneca county Census records which show Solomon.  It should be noted, however, that the 1850 Census shows that Solomon and John (ALDC) were immediate neighbors – suggesting a father/son relationship.  Solomon’s age, of course, is at odds with a birth date in 1834.

                Note that Solomon, born 1825, is the father of (John) William, born 1858.  In turn, William in the father of Clarence, born 1878.

                Kistler family papers at HSBC describe Monroe, 11/7/1830 - 9/27/1913, and his wife, Anna Catherine Setzler, 3/7/1830 - 10/7/1915.  HSO also describes Monroe as the son of John.  Monroe married Catherine Setlzler and had ten children.

                The 1850 Census records for Seneca county, OH, show Monroe, age 21; and Catherine, age 20, in his father's household.                The 1860 Census records for Seneca county, OH, show Monroe, age 30; Catherine, age 20 (should be 30); John, age 19 (should be 9); Henry, age 7; Lana, age 5; George, age 2; and Monroe, age one month.  The 1880 Census records for Seneca county show Monroe, age 49; Catherine, age 50; Monroe, age 19; Nathan, age 17; Frank, age 10; and Anna, age 5.

ALE                        John

                EBEN baptismal records show John, born 6/27/1776, son of John and "Esther" Kistler, godparents Conrad Widerstein (probably the brother of John's wife -- her father was named Henry) and Dorothea Kistler (probably John's sister, Dorothea (AH).                 

                EBEN cemetery records show John, 9/2/1776 - 3/28/1851, and his wife Mary Elizabeth nee Schneider, 3/17/1783 - 5/7/1808.  Despite the difference in the birth date shown for John in the baptismal records, I believe this is the same individual.

                Historic Homes and Institutions of the Lehigh Valley, PA, (HHI), refers to John, a blacksmith, who married for the second time to Catherine Everett.  Cemetery records for the Jacob's Union Church, Jacksonville, Lehigh county, PA, (JAC), show Catherine Kistler (nee Everett), 1/10/1791-4/23/1860.

                John fathered a number of children:

               

                                John                                        ALEA

                                Joseph                                   ALEB

                                Magdalena                          ALEC

                                Maria Ann                            ALEI

                                Gideon                                  ALEJ

                                Abigail                                  ALEK

 

                Based on birth dates, the oldest son, John (ALEA), appears to be the only child of his father's first marriage.

 

ALEA                     John

                EBEN cemetery records show John, 8/18/1808-4/24/1864; the actual gravestone, however, shows 8/18/1802 as the birth date, and this agrees with John's age as reflected in Census records.

EBEN cemetery records also show John's wife, Susanna nee Jacobs, 11/17/1806-2/11/1885.

                John's birth date in 1802 indicates that he is the son of his father's first wife, Mary Elizabeth Schneider, who died 5/7/1808.  The HHI describes John as a son of John (AAE) and Catherine (his father's second wife), but this is obviously an error.

                The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show John, age 48; Susanna, age 44; Aaron, age 18; Susanna, age 16; Eliza, age 14; Angelina, age 10; Sally, age 6; Jonas, age 3; and Mary, age 1.  The 1860 Census records for Lehigh county show John, age 58; Susanna, age 54; Angelina, age 18; Aaron, age 23; Sarah, age 16; and Jonas, age 14.

                Several of John's children are named in records of wills or in orphan court records.  Specifically named are Aaron (Aaron Jacob), Susanna, Elisa, and Angelina.

 

ALEAA                  David

                EBEN baptismal records show David, born 2/9/1831, son of John and Susanna.  Also, LDS records show "Daniel", son of John and Susanna, baptized at Jordon Lutheran Church, Lehigh county, PA, on 3/1/1831.  I suspect that David and Daniel are the same individual -- in any case, no further record is found of either David or Daniel.

 

ALEAB                  Aaron

                EBRT shows Aaron Jacob, son of "Jacob" and Susanna nee Jacob, born 8/10/1832, died


11/4/1909.  Aaron was not married.  Aaron's gravestone in the family plot at EBEN shows the same dates as does EBRT.

                In 1850, Aaron, age 18, is shown in his father's household in the Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  At age 23, he is shown in his father's household in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county. 

                At age 37, he is shown living with his widowed mother in the 1870 Census records for Lehigh county.  At age 47, he is shown living with his widowed mother in the 1880 Census records for Lehigh county.

                The 1900 Census records for Lehigh county show Aaron, age 67 (born 8/1832); and his niece, Josephine Moyer, age 38 (born 4/1862).

 

ALEAC                  Susanna

                The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Susanna, age 16, in her father's household.  Lehigh county orphan court records describe Susanna as married to Nathan Weaver.  NEL shows that Susanna was born 1/16/1833, died 4/12/1900.

 

ALEAD                  Elizabeth (Elisa)

                The 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA, show Elisa, age 14, in her father's household.  Lehigh county orphan court records describe Elisa as the deceased wife of Daniel Moyer.  NEL as well as EBEN cemetery records show that Eliza/Elizabeth, wife of Daniel Moyer, was born 3/14/1839, died 2/13/1864.

                EBEN baptismal records show that in 1863 Mrs. Daniel (Elizabeth) Moyer sponsored a child of Stephen Kistler (see AFCK).

 

ALEAE                  Angelina

                Angelina, age 10 (sic) appears in her father's household in the 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  At age 18, she appears in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county.

                Lehigh county orphan court records describe Angelina as the wife of David Hartman.  EBEN cemetery records show Angelina Hartman nee Kistler, 3/22/1842 - 6/30/1909, and David Hartman, 2/19/1837 - 9/21/1881.  EBRT confirms this data and also shows Angelina's marriage on 12/1/1867.

                Jonas, age 3, appears in his father's household in the 1850 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  At age 14, he appears in his father's household in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county.  A gravestone in the family plot at EBEN shows Jonas, 3/17/1847 - 3/23/1864.

 

ALEAI                    Mary

                Mary, age 1, appears in her father's household in the 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  HELF shows Mary, born 4/28/1849, died 8/10/1850, daughter of John and Susanna.

 

ALEB                     Joseph

                Both HHI and BAV describes Joseph, 11/21/1810 - 12/14/1879, as the son of John and Catherine; BAV shows his wife as Maria (Polly) Hans, 3/11/1811 - 8/14/1904.  Gravestones at Lowhill Union Church, Lehigh county, PA, (LOW) confirm these dates except that Maria's birth date is shown as 5/1/1811.

                The 1850 Census for Lehigh county show Joseph, age 39; Maria, age 39; Fianna, age 18; Maria, age 16; Polly, age 13; Amandus, age 11; Sarah, age 6; Joseph, age 7, Monroe, age 3; and Lydia, age three months.

ALEBB                   Maria

                HHI describes Maria, born 7/4/1834, daughter of Joseph.  A gravestone at LOW shows Mary A. Kistler, 7/4/1834 - 6/19/1923.  Apparently, Maria never married.

                Maria, age 16, appears in her father's household in the 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  At age 21 (sic), she appears in her father's household in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county. 

 

ALEBC                  Polly

                HHI describes Polly, born 11/1/1836, daughter of Joseph.  Polly, age 13, appears in her father's household in the 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  The 1860 Census records for Lehigh county show Polly Smith, age 22, in her father's household; obviously, Polly had married.

 

ALEBD                  Amandus

                HHI describes Amandus, born 8/19/1839, son of Joseph.  Also, EBEN baptismal records show "Emendes", born 8/16/1839, son of Joseph and Polly, godparents Elias and Julian Kistler (ALED).

                Amandus, age 11, appears in his father's household in the 1850 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.  At age 21, he appears in his father's household in the 1860 Census records for Lehigh county.  The 1870 Census records for Lehigh county show Amandus, age 30; and Catherine, age 24. 

                The 1880 Census records for Lehigh county show "Mandas", age 37; Catherine, age 32; and Odilen, age 7.

ALEBF                   Monroe  

                Monroe appears in his father's household in the 1850 and 1860 Census records for Lehigh county, PA.

                LDS records for Ohio show that  Monroe married Hannah Kistler (AFNEA) in 1869 in Trumbull county.  TCOC shows that Hannah died shortly after that, on 11/3/1870.  Monroe and Hannah had a


son, Oriss (AFNEA) who was reared by Hannah’s family. After Hannah’s death, Monroe moved to Iowa and remarried.

                The 1880 Census records for Story county, IA, show Monroe, age 33; Hulda, age 34; Vera, age 1; and Ebenezer Stevens, age 86, (grandfather of Hulda).

                The 1900 Census records for Story county show Monroe, age 52 (born 4/1848); Hulda, age 53 (born 4/1847); Vera, age 21 (born 5/1879); and one other child born after 1880.

                HHI describes Monroe, born 4/2/1842, son of Joseph; however, given the birth dates of his siblings, his birth in 1842 is impossible.  Further, Monroe's age on Census records indicate his birth in 1848.

 

ALEBFA                Vera

                Vera, age 1, is shown in her father's household in the 1880 Census records for Story county, IA.  The 1900 Census records for Story county show Vera, age 21 (born 5/1879) in her father's household.

                HHI describes Lydia, born 3/16/1850, daughter of Joseph.  A gravestone at LOW shows Lydia Kistler, 3/16/1850 - 4/7/1874.  Apparently, Lydia had not married.

ALEC                     Magdalena

                EBEN baptismal records show Magdalena, born 10/3/1814, daughter of John and Catherine, godparents William Reep and Magdalena Ebert.

 

ALED                     Elias

                HELF shows Elias, born 11/29/1816, son of John and Catherine, godparents John and Catherine Seiberlilng. 

                In 1839, Elias and Julian Kistler were godparents to Amandus (ALEBD).  This baptismal record suggests that Elias had married, but there are no other records of Elias and Julian.  Possibly, Elias was not married to Julian -- or, if married, she died and he married again.  In any event, HOLL shows Elias Kistler, son of John and Catherine, born 9/29/1822 (sic), died 10/13/1895; married at Trexlertown by Isaac Roeller on 2/8/1842 to Catherina Mohr. 

                The 1850 Census records for Upper Macungie township, Lehigh county, PA, show Elias, age 31; Catherine, age 30; Lewis, age 7; Amanda, age 4; and Lydia, age 1. 

                The 1860 Census records for South Whitehall township, Lehigh county, PA, show Elias, age 39; Catherine, age 39; Lewis, age 16; Amanda, age 13; Lydia, age 11; Jeremiah, age 9; Elemina, age 7; Lavina, age 6; Phaon, age 4; and Franklin, age 1.

                The 1870 Census records for Upper Macungie township show Elias, age 53; Catherine, age 50; Jeremiah, age 19; Lavina, age 16; Phaon, age 14; Franklin, age 11; and Agnes, age 3.

                The 1880 Census records for Upper Macungie township show Elias, age 62; and Catherine, age 57.

                As is apparent, these Census records show that Elias's age varied from decade to decade.  He seems to have been born about 1817-1821.  Overall, this is in keeping with the birth date recorded by HELF (1816) and as reported by HOLL (1822).
