Rikki: My grandmother was also born in Red Bank and married Jacob Priester. Like Jim said there are 2 families settled in the Rimersburg area. It's hard to believe that there isn't a connection but we haven't found it yet. In my research I did find a Ludwig Priester. The 1870 census reads: Priester, Ludwig 36 farmer 2500acres/$526 b) Prussia father and mother of foreign birth W) Elizabth 26keeps house b) PA, Father of foreign birth, can not read or write Children: John 7, Emma 5, Jacob 3, Malinda 1.
