David,

Once again thanks for responding. Hander is undoubtedly the same as Xander. The Jonathan Hander in 1850 has the same children as Jonathan Xander so they are the same. I just followed all the family through 1870 when I stopped.

The Addison Gressly in 1860 may be the son of Mary Ann Xander and Jonas Kressley. Since Mary Ann died in 1859 and left 5 children they may have been farmed out till her husband remarried.

There are some other Kressley connections to the Schumachers. In 1794 George and Christina were sponsors for the child of Johannes and Catherine Graesly. A John Graesly was an attestor to the listing of George Schumacher's goods when he died - a brother-in-law? I found a James Kressly (22) in the home of Nathan Schumaker who may have been a son of David Schumacher in 1860. Somewhere in my notes, though I can't seem to find it now, I know I had a notation of a widow Schumacher who was a sponsor to a Kressly child. I've done a check through of my notes, but I have so much stuff on all my families I just can't seem to find the notation. I thought at the time it referred to Rev. Daniel's wife, not Christina.

I contacted the lady who did the White-Kressly genealogy, but she had no knowledge of a Christina Kressley. I believe Jacob Kressley's will only mentioned his oldest and youngest sons. I think it is possible that Christina was one of Jacob's children thus a sister to Johannes and Bernhard. I have at least two families in which I can't find the birth record for my direct ancestor, but I know for certain they were members of the family. So it's quite possible that Jacob Kressley had more than the five children attributed to him. That may have been Christina. Or it may not.

Pat
