Donald Fayette Cressler (Crissler) family of Indiana Updated October 25, 2005
About Our Family Research
Donald was born in 1894 in South Bend, IN, to Delmar and Clare Greene Cressler. I've been unable to connect directly the Indiana Cressler tree with the Pennsylvania Cressler/Kressler tree. There is a Casper Cressler in Sturgis, MI, in the 1870 Census who was born in Pennsylvania. He has a son listed as Fay who was 1/2 year old. There is the possibility that this is Donald Fayette's father and grandfather. There was a Casper Cressler that left Pennsylvania and moved WEST about this time. As the son was listed as Fay in that census and later listed as "Dellmer" in the 1880 census from Sturgis, MI, it is possible they are one and the same. Any information would be greatly appreciated so that link can be connected. The Indiana Cressler/Crissler family have a reunion every September in Morgantown, IN.
