--------------------- Abner daughter (Evan Marie Kistler) married Neal Stedman who had 1 son, Neal Stedman that married a June??? (I talked to her and forgot to ask her maiden name) who had 3 sons : gregory, bradley, and mitchell
June does not know anything about the Kistler line. It may have died with her husband.
She did tell me to Contact a Julia Embry in Minnisota though. She said that family was close to Abner. The interesting thing there is The Embry family married into the Kistler family with one of Abners Sisters.
So I am now off to a Minnesota search also :)
PS. Is there any way to find out if there are any pictures of the old Abner T ranch? or other Kistler related items back there?
Thanks for the help.

I have this book: Here is some info: page: 62B Abner R. and Nellie (Ruff) Kistler Abner Reece Kistler and Nellie Eleanor Ruff were born in Clinton, Illinois, where they were married on August 22, 1906. Abner was born March 26, 1886 and Nellie on February 13, 1887. After living in Illinois and then Minnesota, they came to North Dakota in 1912 to work on the E. R. Bradley Ranch near Grace City. They arrived at McHenry on the train and made the rest of the trip by wagon. Later the Kistlers purchased land near Grace City. They had one daughter, Eva Marie lives in Grace City and is now married to Elva Pfeifer. Her first husband, Neal Stedman is deceased. Mr. Kistler died March 4, 1955 and Mrs. Kistler died May 26, 1973. They are buried in the Grace City Cemetery.
