BD          Abraham

                Papers of Rev. Schumacher show Abraham, son of John and Barbara "Kuestler", baptized 2/21/1762, nine weeks old ‑‑‑ indicating a birth date of 12/‑‑/1761.  Records of the Jerusalem Church (Albany township, Berks county, PA) show Abraham, age 17, confirmed in 1779.

                The History of Lehigh County (HLC), published in 1914,  describes Abraham as the son of John and states that he moved to Perry county, PA, in 1793, married Marianna Loy, and had seven children.  Other sources (papers of Rev. Charles E. Kistler, available at the Historical Society of Berks County) show that Abraham moved to Perry county before 1783; that he married Mary Loy, daughter of Michael Loy, and had six children: Jacob, Abraham, John, William, Samuel, and Susan (a seventh child, Elizabeth, is not mentioned).

                Abraham's will in Perry county is dated in 1829, but he apparently lived until 1833.  The will names his (second) wife, Catherine (formerly, wife of Jacob Stambaugh) and Abraham's seven children: Jacob, Abraham, John, William, Samuel, and Elizabeth (wife of Fredrick Dumm); Susan died in 1821 and is not named.

                BCGS gives Abraham's date of death as 4/10/1833 and indicates the maiden name of his second wife as Ruprecht.  The HMJP shows his second wife as "Jane" Ruprecht. 

                Abraham and most of his children remained in Perry county.  His son Jacob, however, is reported to have moved to Seneca county, NY, about 1820.

 


BDA                       Jacob

                Family records at the Historical Society of Berks County (HSBC) show that Jacob was born 3/11/1791, married Catherine Brickley (born 1795), had seven daughters, and moved to Seneca county, NY, about 1820.  He died 9/11/1867.  The HLC also briefly describes Jacob and his family.

                It is possible that Catherine married John Roberts, an artist of Harrisburg, and died early in her married life -- this is the information recorded by the HLC and erroneously attributed to a daughter of Samuel (BDCI) -- a daughter who has proved to be non-existent.

                The HLC indicates that Harry lived in Pueblo, Colorado, and the 1900 Census records for Pueblo county, CO, show Harry, 32 (born 3/1868) (sic).  Despite the difference in birth date, I feel sure this is the same individual.

Kistler; William Carl Kistler; and Albert Winfield Kistler.  There also may have been a seventh child, Harry, who died in infancy. 

                Samuel, age 20, appears in the 1850 Census records for Perry county, PA, in his father's household.  The 1860 Census records for Washington county, IA, show Samuel, age 31; Margaret, age 33; John J., age 2, and George, age six months.

                The 1900 Census records for Adams county, NB, show Samuel, age 71 (born 5/1829); and Margaret, age 74 (born 12/1825).  The Census records also show that Samuel and Margaret had been married for 44 years (i.e., married in 1856) and were the parents of six children, three of whom were still living in 1900.

                The HLC (History of Lehigh County) contains information about the Kistler family, including the branch of the Kistler family in Perry county, PA.  Although most of the HLC material has proved to be accurate, there are errors.  In particular, the HLC erroneously attributes several children to Samuel and Margaret -- in an earlier work I had identified these children as Sarah (BDCIA), James (BCDIC), Carrie (BDCID), Kate (BDCIE) and Sara (BDCIF).
