Happy to see your query on this site, as only
this week I learned that Frederick Keister
and Hannah Dyer are my GGGGGGGGgrandparents,
too! I learned that Frederick Keister was
born abt. 1708 in Germany, and his son,
Frederick Keister was b. 1730 in Strasbourgh,
Germany and d. abt. 1814 in Pendleton Co., WV
having married Hannah Dyer abt. 1755. She
was the daughter of Roger Dyer and Hannah
Green, daughter of Robert Green and a
Smith. I am looking for a Morton's History
of Pendleton Co., WV, to copy pages 42-50,
which contain the details of how Roger Dyer
and his son, William, were killed in an
Indian massacre on April 28, 1758, at Fort
Seybert in Pendleton Co., WV. Will
appreciate anyone sending me xerox copies
of these 8 pages and will reimburse cost. Which child of
Frederick Keister and Hannah Dyer was your
ancestor? Happy researching. Dorothy Miller
