My grandmother was also born in Red Bank and married Jacob Priester. Like Jim said there are 2 families settled in the Rimersburg area. It's hard to believe that there isn't a connection but we haven't found it yet.
In my research I did find a Ludwig Priester. The 1870 census reads:
Priester, Ludwig 36 farmer 2500acres/$526
b) Prussia father and mother of foreign birth
W) Elizabth 26 keeps house b) PA, Father of foreign birth, can not read or write
Children: John 7, Emma 5, Jacob 3, Malinda 1.
