I am interested from where in one of the German states your Kislings/Kießlings came. Mine who came in 1752 were originally from Kulmbach, Franconia, a town now in the northern part of Bavaria. Do you know the town from which your Kießlings came? Many related Kießlings live and did live around Munchberg, south of Hof. That's approximately from where all mine were. But my 4th G grandfather who came to PA in 1752 had lived several years in Hesse before coming to America.
