I am researching the Kessinger family from PA for my husband and children.I'm looking for any information on Adam's and Elizabeth's parents and lineage. Adam T. KESSINGER b.1794 in either Lanchester, PA or Germany and d, 4 July 1859 in Mill Hall, PA. Elizabeth HUNSICKER was born 1 Aug 1808 in Lake Como area of Switzerland and d. 28 Jan 1888 in Mifflinburg, PA.
They had 8 children: ElizabethAnn 1822-1880: DeWitt Clinton1828 - 1898; Thomas M.1832- 1910; Joseph Ross 1834 - 1904; Francis Marion KESSINGER 1836 - 1903; Fanny J. 1839-: Jacob G. 1843-1865; and Mary Pearl 1847 - .
All of the sons served in the Civil War, numerous times, and Jacob G. Kessinger was killed at the Battle of Cold Harbor. My husband is descended from Francis Marion.
We've hit the "brick wall" on the parents of Adam and would appreciate any help. Thank you, Sara Kessinger
