Herman Kaethler is also my ancestor.Jacob Kaethler was his son who was the father of my grandfater Herman Kettler or (Kesler).
Nicolas Kesler was my fathers uncle. I too am researching the family history and I have through luck found some interesting refernces relating to land tax information on their first home. I am willing to share.I remember meeting Uncle Nick and have a pic of him with his brother Herman. Deb Kessler
