In Reply to: Johannes Kesler/Kessler of Botetourt Co by Morris Kessler of 1300

Morris: Don't know why I didn't see this before. Barbara Kessler (m Abraham Rader)is my 3rd Ggrandaunt, Christian's son Isaac Lewis married Elizabeth Rader, and Susannah (m George Washington Rader) is my 3rd GGrandmother. These are all children of Johannes son John who married Elizabeth Houseman, then Mary Zimmerman.
I show that Johannes was from the Soar Basin in Germany and married Eva Doutha Layman, d of Christian in 1756. He left Germany during the 30 yrs war and lived in upper providence township of Montgomery Co., PA until they moved to Frederick Co. Md about 1763 before moving finally to Botetourt Co in 1785. Their children, Susannah and Johannes (John Jr.) were both baptized in the Trappe Lutheran Church in PA. And that's about all I know about him. I would be delighted to share information with you; and of course am particularly interested in my line, which goes from Johannes to John to Susannah who married George Washington Rader. Their son, William Rowland had Laura who was my Great Grandmother and I remember her well. Her son AP Mundy had my father Cline.
