Thanks to Dena! She is my new cousin! Dena was able to connect us. Her GGrandfather, Robert Fulton Nesler, and my GGrandfather, James C. (wish I had a middle name)Nesler were brothers. She has found their father, Isaac Nesler in the 1850 census in Posey Co Ind. and in the 1860 census in New Madrid Co., MO. We are having a hard time going past that, as he was married 6 times and I guess moved around a lot. Semms as thoug each marriage was in Posey Co. Ind. Isaac was born abt. 1825 or 1826 in Kentucky. Any suggestions as how to locate him around that time, as the census back then only listed heads of the family and we don't know Isaac's father's name. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
