Kistler/Keesler/Kesler Family
Posted by: Al Kesler (ID *****6347) Date: July 26, 2006 at 07:36:47

Looking for information regarding Jacob Kistler married to Barbara Leonard daughter of Valentine Leonard of Davidson County). My information is that Jacob died in 1812 leaving Barbara with 11 (?) children. They were living in the western part of Rowan County on land adjoining Thyatira Meeting House land (Mill Bridge area?) at the time of his death. It appears that some of the older children may have located into Lincoln County. The children were Jacob Jr., Elizabeth, Catherine, Christinana, John, George, Peter,Valentine, Polly, Sally or Sarah (b: 1808?), Andrew (b:1810?).Looking for descendents of any of these children, especially Sally/Sarah. It appears that on 11 Aug 1812, that a Daniel Rumple was appointed Guardian of Jacob Keesler's orphans: George, Peter, Valentine, Polly, Sally/Sarah, and Andrew.
