Wastler Family - Hagerstown, MD
I am interested in finding any connections to the Wastler family of Hagerstown, Washington Co., MD to Johann Heinrich Warstler (1729-1814).
My uncle-by-marriage, Robert A Wastler (b 1921, d 2002), marr Evelyn Rose Davis (of DC) was b in Hagerstown, MD and d in Washington State in 2002.
His father was Charles A (Albert?) who was b in 1878 in (Hagerstown?), MD and d in Hagerstown, MD (after 1930).He married Mary E (surname unknown), who was born in 1881 in MD.
I believe that Charles A may have been the son of another Charles ("L," perhaps), b in 1857 in MD and died in Hagerstown.He married Ada (or Addie) surname unknown.She was born around 1854.
This is where the generations get a bit fuzzy.
I believe that Charles (b 1857) Wastler may have been the son of Jacob Wastler (or Warstler), who was b 1825 in MD and died in 1900.He married Catherine M Moore (b 1833 in MD).
This Jacob (jr) was the son of another Jacob (Sr), b 1785 in Frederick Co., MD, d 1861 in Frederick Co., MD.He married Elizabeth Stokes (b 1791 in PA and d 1872 in MD).
According to my meager research, Jacob (Sr) was the son of John Heinrich (1757 PA-1816 Starke, OH).Although if Jacob was born in MD it may not be the correct connection.John Heinrich may have had other children who were born in MD, though.
I do notice that there were an awful lot of Jacob Warstler's between OH, PA and MD.
Would anyone have any proof of this lineage as I have written it or am I off the wall about the Jacob-angle?I would be extremely appreciative of any help given.
