No relation. I just enjoy browsing through family Bibles up for auction on eBay and trying to connect any genealogical info to those that might find it of interest or worth pursuing. I am not the seller, nor do I intend to purchase. Unfortunately, links to eBay items only stay active for a couple months. Here is what I found:
According to the seller "samueljyake7":
This sale is for an old Bible printed in 1825. It contains the original genealogy for the famous WISTER family of Philadelphia, PA. Names mentioned in the Family pages include: WILLIAM WISTER, SARAH LOGAN FISHER, WILLIAM ROTCH WISTER, JOHN WISTER, HARVEY LANGHORNE WISTER, LANGHORNE WISTER (a Brigidier General in the Civil War), RODMAN WISTER, etc. There are four full pages of family records for the WISTER family. The WISTER family is famous in Pennsylvania history--they introduced the game of cricket to the United States, produced many prominent lawyers, soldiers, etc., were involved with La Salle University, produced the famous writer OWEN WISTER (author of The Virginian), on and on.
By my transcription of photos posted by the seller:
