BE           John

                As noted elsewhere, at one time I mistook John (B) for the son of George (A).  I compounded the error by mistaking John (AL), for the son of John (B).  I then overlooked John Kistler -- the actual son of John (B) -- who had moved to North Carolina with his brothers, George (BA) and Jacob (BC).

                I have now corrected these errors.  The following information may also prove useful.

 

                                1.            Barbara's will names her sons: John George, William, Jacob, Abraham, and John -- in that sequence.  I suspect 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 unlikely that he would have confirmed a child of five or six or younger.  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 (A) -- that is, John (AL), who was born about 1752.

                               

                                2.            EBEN baptismal records clearly show the existence of John (AL), son of George (A) Kistler and his wife Dorothea. 

                The EBEN baptismal entry for John (ALE), son of John (AL), shows Dorothea (AH) as a sponsor.  The EBEN baptismal entry for Eva (ALH), daughter of John (AL), shows George (A) and his wife Dorothea as sponsors.  And the EBEN baptismal entry for Maria Magdalena (ALG), daughter of John (AL), shows 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).

 

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.

                                                                                                *****

 

                John (BE) was probably born about 1767.  Together with his older brothers George (BA) and Jacob (BC), he moved to North Carolina sometime before 1790.  In North Carolina, John settled in Rowan county.  He seems to have married three times.  Rowan county marriage records show that on 3/24/1792, John Kistler married Susanna Lopp.  John's second wife was Mary Barringer (m. 1798).  His third wife was Mary Barbara Hollar Lippard; Iredell County Heritage shows that Mary Barbara, born 1771, widow of John Lippard who died in 1821, then married John Kistler. 

               


                John died in 1841 at age 74 (this indicates a birth date of 1767).  John's will, dated March 1841 and probated November 1841, names his wife as Mary B.  His children are named as follows:

 

                                Jacob                                     BEA

                                Christina                               BEB

                                John                                        BEC

                                Henry                                    BED

                                Paul                                        BEE

                                Mary                                      BEF

                                Margaret/Peggy                BEG                                      


BEA                        Jacob

                Jacob was born about 1797; he probably was the child of his father's first marriage.  LDS records show that Jacob married Mary Pool on 8/24/1818 in Rowan county, NC. 

                About 1825, Jacob and his family moved to Illinois.  This can be deduced from the age and birthplace of his sons, John (BEAB) and Jacob (BEAC), as shown in Census records.  Refer also to the entry below for Mary (BEF) -- in 1842, Jacob (BEA) of Illinois is mentioned in a real estate transaction involving the estate of his father in North Carolina.

                The 1830 Census records show Jacob was then located in Johnson county, IL.  The Jacob Kiestler family then consisted of one male, age 30-40 (Jacob, BEA); one female , age 30-40 (his wife); one male, 10-15 (John, BEAB); two females, 5-10 (one of these must be Susannah Lucinda, BEAA); one male under 5 (Jacob, BEAC); and two females under 5 (one of these must be Adalilne, BEAD).

                On 1/4/1838, his daughter, Susannah Lucinda (BEAA), was married in Johnson county (refer to her entry below).        

                The 1850 Census records for Johnson county, IL, show Jacob "Kesler", age unknown; his son, Jacob Kesler, age 24; Adaline, age 22; Nancy, age 17; and William, age 14.  The birthplace of the senior Jacob is shown as North Carolina; all others in the household were born in Illinois. 

 

BEAA                     Susannah Lucinda

                Susannah Lucinda was probably born about 1820.  LDS records show that "Lucinda Keistler" married James K.P. Smith in Johnson county, IL.  The publication, Johnson County, Illinois, Early Marriages, 1834-1877, (reference code JCEM), shows "Susannah Lucinda Kestler" married James K.P. Smith on 1/4/1838.

 

BEAB                     John

                The 1850 Census records for Johnson county, IL, show John Kesler, age 27 (he probably was age 30); Nancy, age 23; and William B., age 2.  John's birthplace is shown as North Carolina; his wife and son are shown as having been born in Illinois. 

                The 1860 Census records for Johnson county show John L., age 40 (born NC); Nancy, age 31, and William, age 11. 

                Evidently, John's first wife died sometime after the 1860 Census, and he then remarried -- to another woman named Nancy.  JCEM records show John Kesler/Kestler married Nancy J. Watson on 8/2/1870.  In support of this, the 1900 Census records for Johnson county show Nancy Keistler, widow, (age not recorded); her son Marion, age 25 (born 5/1875); and a daughter Margaret, age 19 (born 8/1880).  Nancy is shown as being born in Virginia.  The Census entries for her children show that their father had been born in North Carolina.

 

BEABA                  William B.

                William B., age 2, is shown in his father's household in the 1850 Census records for Johnson county, IL.  At age 11, William is shown in his father's household in the 1860 Census records for Johnson county.

                 JCEM records show that William B. Kesler married Rachel A. Bryant on 3/16/1868.

 

BEABB                  Marion

                The 1900 Census records for Johnson county, IL, show Marion, age 25 (born 5/1875), in the household of his widowed mother.

 

BEABC                  Margaret

                The 1900 Census records for Johnson county, IL, show Margaret, age 19 (born 8/1880) in the household of her widowed mother.

               


BEAC                    Jacob

                Jacob, age 24, is shown in his father's household in the 1850 Census records for Johnson county, IL.  His birthplace is shown as Illinois. 

                LDS records show that Jacob Kestler married Catherine Turner in Johnson county, IL, on 4/14/1854.  LDS records also show Jacob Keistler and Catherine nee Turner as parents of Mary C, born 4/12/1863 in Union county, IL.

 

BEACA                 Mary C.

                LDS records show Jacob Keistler and Catherine nee Turner as parents of Mary C, born 4/12/1863 in Union county, IL.  LDS records also show that Mary C. Keisler married John W. Jones in Union county, IL, on 11/10/1881.

 

BEAD                     Adaline

                Adaline, age 22, is shown in her father's household in the 1850 Census records for Johnson county, IL.

 

BEAE                     Nancy

                Nancy, age 17, is shown in her father's household in the 1850 Census records for Johnson county, IL.

 

BEAF                     William W.

                William, age 14, is shown in his father's household in the 1850 Census records for Johnson county, IL.  JCEM records show W.W. Keistler married Mary Bryant on 2/16/1858. 

                The 1860 Census records for Johnson county show William, age 22; Mary E., age 20; and Noah M., age 1.  Apparently, Mary died before 1876 (when William remarried).

                The reference book, Marriages of Union County, Illinois (1818-1880) shows that William W. Keisler, age 37, married Elizabeth Meisenheimer (age 26) on May 30, 1876.

                The 1900 Census records for Johnson county show William Keistler, age 62 (born 2/1838); Elizabeth, age 51 (born 6/1848); and four children born after 1880.  The Census notes that William and Elizabeth had been married for 23 years.

 

BEAFA                  Noah M.

                Noah M., age 1, is shown in his father's household in the 1860 Census records for Johnson county, IL.  The 1900 Census records for Johnson county show Noah Keistler, age 42 (born 2/1858); and wife Anna, age 53 (born 4/1847).

 

BEAFB                   Grover E.

BEAFE                   Myrtle   

Born 11/1891; she appears in her father's household in the 1900 Census. 

 

BEB                        Christina

                Christina was born about 1799.  LDS records show that Christina married Henry Albright on 4/24/1820 in Rowan county, NC.  In 1841, her father's will refers to her as Christina Albright. 


BEC                       John

                Cemetery records show that John was born in 1804.  Rowan county marriage records in NC show that he married Christena Sowers on 6/5/1820. 

                Christena died about 1833.  In the February 1837 Court Sessions of Rowan County, William Barr, the guardian of the heirs of “Christian Kessler” filed his account.  This undoubtedly refers to the heirs of Christena (Sowers) Kistler – there is no record of a Christian Kessler/Kistler.  The heirs would have been her children, John (BECA) and James (BECB), born about 1829 and 1831 respectively.  Note that in 1834 (probably shortly after the death of Christena), John (BEC) married Sarah Scroggs.

                Note, too, that Elizabeth Sowers (sister to Christena) never married; she died in 1843.  Her will was probated in 1844.  The will mentions her brothers George and Philip Sowers.  The will also mention (though not by name) the children of her sister Christiana Kestler.

                In 1855, the estate of Peter Sowers (brother to Christena) was divided among his heirs.  Among the heirs were his nephews, John and James Kistler.  More than anything, this confirms the marriage of Christena Sowers to John (BEC).

                As already noted, John married Sarah Scroggs in 1834.  The publication, Iredell County Heritage, describes John Kistler/Kestler as a widower of considerable wealth who married Sarah Scoggs. 

                The publication, Family and Church Cemetery Records in Iredell County, NC, 1753-1975, lists the Scroggs Cemetery.  Buried there are John Kestler, 11/9/1804-2/13/1878, and his wife, Sarah (nee Scroggs), 12/11/1800-2/13/1891.  Also buried there are an infant son of John and Sarah who died in February of 1840 and an infant daughter of John and Sarah who died in 1841.

                The 1850 Census records for Iredell county, NC, show John "Kiester", age 46; Sarah, age 48; Lewis, age 21; James, age 19; David, age 15; Esther, age 12; Amos, age 8; and Sarah, age 5.

                The 1860 Census records for Iredell county, NC, show John "Kestler", age 55; Sarah, age 55; John, age 31; James, age 29; David, age 25; Esther, age 22; Amos, age 18; and Sally, age 14. 

                The 1870 Census records for Iredell county, NC, show John "Keistler", age 65; Sarah, age 69; John L., age 41; James P., age 39; and David, age 34. 

                Records at the North Carolina State Archives (NCSA) in Raleigh show that John Kistler/Kisler died in February 1878.  These records refer to his widow, Sarah, and children, as follows:
