I had searched all of the U. S. passenger lists for many years for my great-grandmother, Elenor Quiglely (18 June 1831, Donegal, Ireland - 10 Oct 1889, Linden, Texas) and only a couple of years ago did I find her thru Ancestry. com as a passenger on the “Prudence of Londonderry” sailing from the port if Londonderry, Ireland to St. John, New Brunswick, Canada on 23 May 1838, with her sister, Ann, and her brother, William. On 14 July 1838, when they arrived in St. John, Elenor was 7 years old, Ann was 22 years old and William was 17 years old. By 1856, Elenor was in Jacksonville, Morgan Co., Illinois where she was married on 21 May 1856 to my great-grandfather, John Frederick Kesling (Johann Frederich Kiessling/Kießling), John Frederick Kesling (Johann Frederich Kiessling/Kießling) was born 24 July 1832 in Quellenreuth, Bavaria and died 15 Oct 1892 in Linden, Texas. Prior to 1880, the Keslings were in Cass Co., Texas with all of their children with the exception of Thomas and spelling their last name Kasling.
The following are the children of Elenor and John Frederick Kasling/Kesling (Johann Fredrich Kiessling/Kießling):
Edward Stephen Kasling (28 Aug 1857, Morgan Co., Illinois - 2 July 1941, Linden, Cass Co., Texas). He married Nancy Caroline (Jeffie) Givens 13 May 1885 in Linden, Texas. Edward Stephen and Nancy Caroline Givens Kasling were my grandparents.
