This is a longshot - my grandfather was jake (jack) bressler from Atlanta. his father was Hirsch, who I believe came to Savannah. Ga from New Orleans. I know only that much, and maybe that is not even correct - however, it would be around the time of 1870 at least - perhaps there was a connection with the kin, ie, who were the children of the Jacob Bressler you are describing? thanks a lot.
