Hello, I'm interested in finding a connection between Jacob Ressler and Abraham Ressler - I'm wondering if they are brothers or possibly cousins.Both were in Tipton County at the same time and both are close in age.Jacob moved his family to Minnesota sometime in the year 1855-56.Jacob's son, Benjamin was born 4/28/1855 in Tipton County, IN and his son Joseph was born 1856 in Minnesota.Accoring to the census records of 1860 Abraham Ressler and family were in the same area as Jacob in Minnesota and then on the 1870 census, Abraham and family were back in Tipton County, IN. with Jacob and family still in MN. I'm wondering if the two families traveled together to Minnesota.Concerning Jacob's daughter, Amanda, I have her as being born in 1848 and I have no other Amanda Ressler in my records.
What do you think about Abraham and Jacob being related? I've been at a stopping point for quite some time and just looking for clues. Thanks, Linda
