I am having a very difficult time tracing my family. From the family bible I know my great-grandfathers name and DOB, and it also lists my great-grandmother, but other than that I hit deadends. I do have a list of burials in the New Orleans area (Lafayette Cemetery # 1) , and can put a few in line, but I surely could use some help. Here is a list of what I have:
Jacob Kesler - native of Virginia B. abt 1793 D. 11 Sep 1854 Naomi B. Hukill Kesler B. abt 1792 D. 26 Sep 1868 Eliza Jane & Naomi Kesler Amanda Kesler B. abt 1829 D. 8 May 1877 Anna L Hogan Kesler B. abt 1843 D. 19 Mar 1874 (wife of Dewitt Kesler) Dewitt Clinton Kesler B. abt 1836 D. 27 Nov 1898 Gertrude L Kesler B 10 Jan 1865 D 16 Sep 1896 John Clinton Kesler B 7 May 1867 D 10 Feb 1918 (my great- grandfather)
John Clinton Kesler married Elizabeth Croll from England, and I am stuck there!
other children of Dewitt are Walter Viren and Kate . If there are others I am not aware of them.
Walter V. married Chritine and they had 5 children (Isabelle, Walter, Gertrude, William, and Alec)
John Clinton had one child that I am aware of, my grandfather, Jennings Jack Kesler b. 2 Apr 1912 d 22 Jan 1981. He married Felicie Giunintano, and they had two sons. Richard Jack and Jennings James** (my father).
Any help/information that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated. I've browsed several profiles that list a Jacob born around 1793 from VA, and it seems that that is where he disappeared, maybe I have the key to that mystery for some.
