Hi Irma sorry, I have nothing about your Fred, but your last name caught my eye. I have been searching for years for info on my ancestor Margaret McConnell (1758-1852 Eng-NY) who married my GGGG Grandfather Henry Hessler (Heinrich Hesler it is also spelled) 1746-1809 Holland-NY.They had seven children. Would you have any info in either your Hessler line or your McConnell line? If not, its a NEAT coincidence, huh? Thanks in advance , too, if you haveanything in your research notes since you are studying the Heslers about Henry Hessler , the tailor, from Holland who landed in Philadelphia 1771, moved to NY City briefly then settled in the Mohawk Valley in Canajoharie, NY. After he died, Margaret McConnell Hesler moved to Cazenovia NY with a son's family & is buried there.
