I have found 2 Reister/Riester families in the Wheeling area: Nicodemus and Charles being the heads of the families. I know that Charles had three sons: William, Phillip and Joseph. However, I decend from one of Charles' daughters, and since this was one of the first research projects I ever did, I failed to collect ALL information for all families for Charles and Nicodemus.
So my anwer to your question is maybe!!! Have you found any of these men on the 1900 census with their father? I can access the census at a family history center near my home - do you have one near you? Let me know. Email me directly.
