Phyllis, I am also related to George Geist married to Catherina Kramer. They had several children, including a George married to a Kessler. He would have been about the same age as the George born to Andreas Geist and Maria Christina Schneider. Both George's moved about the same time to Jefferson county, Pennsylvania. As I remember, I found them both there on the 1850 census, living very close to each other. I have seen the will and estate settlement for George Geist married to Catherina Kramer. In the estate settlement, all of the children are listed except for the youngest daughter. I am related to John who married Caroline Kessler. I have found her parents through a will which listed John as an executor of the will. It also appears that the children had moved to Schuylkill county. I have done some work on George in Northumberland county and in the deed records there are some deeds in German which might help link our George to someone. My theory it is the George from Christoph's family. The Geist Relations book is very poor in connection with this individual.
