This is the information that I have in my notes...that John Fessler's father is William Fessler. According to 1860 census in Fulton Co; Wells Twp; Roll 1113; Pg 219; Last Name Fesler B: 1787 (that would make him 73yrs in 1860) and was a Stone Mason. According to the Fessler Book:This information is from Jim Fessler of Laurel, MD dated 21 Dec 1988:William Fessler (Note: There is a descrepancy for the birthdate of William Fessler.If the 1860 Census record is correct, he was born abt 1787.The records of Huntingdon Co. Historical Society mention that he was born abt 1809 and is the father of John Fessler) m. unknown.
Also I have John Fessler B: May 1829 and married Mary White March 1850.
I have George H. Fessler listed as John's brother and it looks like they were basically from Fulton Co and Huntingdon Co.
