Hello, I have a bit more info on the Family of John Nicholas & Sarah Kessler. They were my husbands great grandfather & great grandmother through their son Rev Joseph Milton Helsley & Rachel Ann Rush Helsley. Joseph & Rachel took a covered wagon from VA to Nevada as missionaries - later going into Calif & established a church in Gonzales, CA - from there pastor at First Baptist, Ceres, Ca. Their children Francis (died early), Edward, Gordon, Stanton, Milton & Carol. My husband, Sheldon, came through Stanton. Stanton was a dairy farmer, then Postmaster, the Co Judge. My husband Sheldon was an Evangelist & church planter in the Rockies - married Ann Gray of Ca & we had 5 children - four, of which live in Montana & one in Portland, OR. I know there are Helsleys in Oregon & wonder from which branch they are from. I am only a cousin by marriage but my children are your cousins. Hope to hear from some of you.
