BB                           John William (William)

                In Pennsylvania, papers of Rev. Schumacher show John William, son of John and Anna Barbara, baptized 8/21/1757, twelve weeks old ‑‑‑ indicating a birth date of 5/‑‑/1757; BCGS records show 4/30/1757.  William next appears in 1775 in the records of the Rosenthal Church (also known as New Bethel Union Church), Albany township, Berks county, PA, (ROSE), where in 1775 "John W. Kistler" served as godfather to a child of Susanna and Lawrence Bachman (his sister and brother‑in‑law). 

                The listing of communicants for Friedens Church (also known as the White Church), Albany township, Berks county, PA, (FRD), show William as a steady communicant from 1808 until his death.  LDS microfilm records for the Friedens Church show that William died 3/18/1821. 

                William's wife, Dorothea, is named in numerous entries in church records (e.g., William and Dorothea, parents of Daniel).  Otherwise, there is no record of marriage.

                William's will (Will Book 1, pages 413‑414, Lehigh county, PA) is dated 5/3/1820 and was probated 4/7/1828.  The will names the following children:

                               

Daniel                                                    BBB

                                Peter                                                      BBA

                                Matthew                                               BBC

                                Maria                                                     BBD

                                (wife of Heinrich/Heinbach)

                                Elizabeth                                              BBE

                                                (wife of Jacob Bauscher)

                                Magdalena                                          BBF

                                                (wife of Peter Bachman)

 

                BCGS records show William married twice ‑‑ first to Eva Dorothea Hauer and then to Christina Shollenberger.  Also, two additional children are named ‑‑ Johannes (m. Catherine Ohlinger) and Charles.  Neither are named in John's will dated in 1820.

 


BBA                        Peter

                Neither birth nor death records have been located.  However, from the ages of his siblings and his children, he probably was born about 1785.  Based on Berks county, PA, administrative records which named his brother-in-law, John Stein, as executor of Peter's estate, it appears that Peter died about 1823.  Court records in Berks county, PA, show Peter's children as Catherine, Eliza, Elizabeth, Joseph, and Sarah. 

                Baptismal records for Peter's children identify his wife as Elizabeth.  Her maiden name probably was Stein.  In addition to John Stein (Peter's brother-in-law who served as executor of Peter's estate) see also George Stein who served as godparent to Joseph, (BBAC).

 

BBAA                     Elizabeth

                FRD records show Elizabeth, born 4/28/1806, daughter of Peter and Elizabeth, godparents William and Dorothea (BB).  Court records in Berks county, PA, identify Elizabeth as the wife of Peter Zuber.

 

BBAB                     Rebecca

                Records of the Jerusalem Church (also known as the Red Church), Stony Run, Berks county, PA, (JER), show Rebecca, born 2/17/1808, daughter of Peter and Elizabeth, godparents Jacob Bauscher and Elizabeth Kistler (BBE).

                Court records in Berks county, PA, do not show Rebecca as an heir of Peter; she probably died young.

 

BBAC                    Joseph

                FRD records show Joseph, born 2/10/1812, son of Peter and Elizabeth, godparents George Stein and Maria Kistler.  Court records in Berks county, PA, show Joseph as a heir of Peter. 

                Joseph married Susanna Roth (her maiden name is shown on the death certificate of son Daniel).  The 1850 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, show Joseph, age 38; Susanna, age 37; Sally Ann, age 14; Henry, age 11; Mary, age 9; Levi, age 7; Sophia, age 6; Daniel, age 3; and Joseph, age 11 months.

                The 1860 Census records for Schuylkill county show Joseph, age 55; Susanna, age 50; Joseph, age 10; Elizabeth, age 7; James, age 8; and Franklin, age 5.  The 1870 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, show Joseph, age 66; and Susanna, age 65.  Their son, David (BBACK), is shown as their neighbor.

 

BBACA                 Sarah (Sally Ann)

                The 1850 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, show Sally Ann, age 14, in her father's household.  LDS records show that Sally Ann married William Billman on 10/10/1852.

                The 1880 Census records for Jewell county, KS, show Sarah Billman, age 43, and a son, George Billman, age 11, living in the household of her brother Henry (BBACB).

 

BBACB                  Henry

                Records of the Union Reformed Church, Unionville, PA, (URC), show Henry born 9/12/1838, son of Joseph and Susanna, godparents Peter and Eva Roth. 

                The 1850 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, show Henry, age 11, in his father's household.  The 1880 Census records for Jewell county, KS, show Henry, age 41; Rebecca, age 37; Charles, age 19; Frank, age 15; John, age 10; Katie, age 8; Jennie, age 6; Sarah Billman, age 43; and George Billman, age 11.

BBACC                 Mary

BBACD                 Levi

                Levi, age 7, appears in his father's household in the 1850 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA.  The 1870 Census records for Schuylkill county show Levi, age 25; Amanda, age 22; Emma, age 1; and Sarah, age 2.

                The 1880 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, show Levi, age 39; Amanda, age 35; Ella, age 9; Sarah, age 7; Oscar, age 5; Lewis, age 3; and Gertrude, age three months.  Note that the ages of Emma/Ella and Sarah do not accord with the 1870 Census records.

                The 1900 Census records for Allentown show Levi, age 57 (born 10/1842); Amanda, age 55 (born 3/1845); and two children born after 1880. 

 


BBACDA              Ella (Emma)

BBACDB               Sarah

                Sarah, age 2, appears in the 1870 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in her father's household.  Sarah, age 7, appears in the 1880 Census records for Allentown, PA, in her father's household.

BBACE                  Sophia

                Sophia, age 6, appears in the 1850 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in her father's household.

 

BBACF                  Daniel R.

                There is a good deal of confusion about Daniel's birth date.  His death certificate shows that he was born 11/27/1843 and died 10/11/1918; his parents are shown as Joseph Kistler and Susanna nee Roth.  However, his gravestone in the St. Johns Reformed Church Cemetery, Orwigsburg, PA, shows Daniel R. Kistler, 12/21/1846-10/11/1918; his wife is shown as Louisa, 2/11/1842- 4/3/1898.  The various Census records are not helpful.                 Daniel, age 3, appears in the 1850 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household -- he probably was age 6.  The 1860 Census records for Schuylkill county show Daniel, age 18 -- he probably was age 16. 

                The 1880 Census records for Schuylkill county show Daniel, age 32 -- he probably was age 36; Louisa, age 38; Susanna, age 10; Matilda, age 7; Morris, age 5; Ida, age 3; Irvin, age 1; Lewis (son), age 18; and Sarah Bock (sister-in-law, single), age 43.  Finally, the 1900 Census records for Orwigsburg, Schuylkill county, PA, show Daniel, age 53 (born 3/1848) in the household of his daughter Susanna (BBACFB).

                Daniel's first wife was Louisa Bock.  Based on Civil War pension records, Daniel apparently married twice; his second wife was Amanda Winters.

 

BBACFA               Lewis

                Lewis, age 18, is shown in the 1880 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household.

 

BBACFB               Susanna

                Susanna, age 10, is shown in the 1880 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in her father's household.  The 1900 Census records for Orwigsburg, Schuylkill county, PA, show Susanna, age 30, married to Joseph Brown, age 38.  Daniel (BBACF) and Ida (BBACFE) also reside in the household.

 

BBACFC               Matilda

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

 

BBACFD               Morris

                Morris, age 5, appears in the 1880 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household.  The 1900 Census records for Schuylkill county show Morris, age 27 (born 1873); and Annie, age 30 (born 1870).

 

BBACFE               Ida

                Ida, age 3, appears in the 1880 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in her father's household.  The 1900 Census records for Schuylkill county show her in the household of her sister, Susanna (BBACFB).  A gravestone at St. Pauls Lutheran Cemetery, Orwigsburg, PA, shows Ida E. Kistler, 10/9/1876-12/27/1953.

 

BBACFF                Irwin

                Irwin, age 1, appears in the 1880 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household.

 

BBACG                 Joseph R.

                  Census records indicate Joseph married twice.  His first wife was the daughter of Philip Swigart; she seem to have died about 1870 after the birth of son Charles.  Joseph then remarried; his second wife was named Levina (Lavina).

                Joseph first appears in the 1850 and 1860 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household.  Next, the 1870 Census records for Schuylkill county show Joseph, age 21, and Charles, age five months -- Joseph's first wife is not listed.

                The 1880 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, show Joseph, age 29; Levina, age 26; and Annie, age 5.

                The 1900 Census records for Allentown show Joseph, age 50 (born 6/1849); Levina, age 47 (born 4/1853); married daughter, Annie E. Kock, age 25 (born 10/1874); and five other children born after 1880.  The 1900 Census also indicates that Joseph and Levina had been married for 27 years (i.e., married about 1873).

                In brief, the Census records indicate that Levina was Joseph's second wife -- his first wife probably died about 1870; her maiden name must have been Swigart.  See entry for Charles (BBACGA) below.

 

BBACGA              Charles

                Charles, age five months, appears in the 1870 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household -- his mother is not included in the entry.

                The 1900 Census records for Putnam county show Charles, age 30 (born 4/1870); Fiona, age 22 (born 11/1877); and one child born after 1880.

 

BBACGAA           Linus J. 

Born 1/1900; he appears in his father's household in the 1900 Census.

 


BBACGB              Lizzie

BBACGC              Annie E.

                Annie, age 5, appears in the 1880 Census for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, in her father's household.  The 1900 Census records for Allentown show Annie E. Kock (married daughter), age 25 (born 10/1874) in her father's household.

                James, age 8, appears in the 1860 Census for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household.

 

BBACJ                   Franklin

                Franklin, age 5, appears in the 1860 Census for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household.  Gravestones in the cemetery of the Immanual Church, Mantz, Schuylkill county, PA, (IMM), show (illegible) Franklin, 10/17/1863-4/6/1863, son of (illegible) and Susanna Kistler.

 

BBACK                  David R.

                David was born about 1837, but he is not shown in the 1850 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household -- perhaps he was a laborer on another farm. 

                The 1860 Census records for Schuylkill county show David, age 23; Caroline, age 22; and William, age 2.  The family is residing next to David's parents.  The 1870 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, show David, age 28; Caroline, age 24; William, age 14; and Louis,

age 8.

                David died 12/15/1876 in Salisbury township, Lehigh county;  Lehigh county orphan court records contain references to David's parents, Joseph and Susanna.  Schuylkill county probate records in 1880 show that Caroline had remarried (her surname was then Bock).  These records show Lewis J. (a minor child of David over 14) and Mary J.A. (a minor child of David's under 14).

 

BBACKA               William

                William, age 2, appears in the 1860 Census records for Schuylkill county, PA, in his father's household.  He is shown as age 14 on the 1870 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, in his father's household.

               

BBACKB               Lewis J.

                "Louis", age 8, appears in the 1870 Census records for Allentown, Lehigh county, PA, in his father's household.  In the 1880 Census for Lynn township, Lehigh county, PA, Lewis, age 18, is probably the apprentice shown in the household of John Weiss.

                Schuylkill county probate records in 1880 identify Lewis as a minor child of David, over 14 at that time.

                The 1900 Census records for Lee county, IA, show Lewis J., age 38 (born 4/1862); Louisa, age 33 (born 7/1866); and five children born after 1880.

                FRD baptismal records show Magdalena, born 9/13/1814, daughter of Peter and Elizabeth, godparents Matthew and Magdalena Kistler.  Court records in Berks county, PA, show the heirs of Peter; Magdalena is not listed.  She probably died young.

BBBCB                  Henry A. (Adam Henry Albert)

                JER baptismal records show Adam Heinrich, born 3/24/1857, son of William D. and Judith, godparents David and Rebecca Bausch.

                EBRT shows Adam Henry Albert Kistler, 3/24/2857-5/4/1928, and describes his two marriages -- first to Emma Wessner and then to Alice Billig.  The second marriage occurred on 5/10/1890.
