In Reply to: Feaslers from Barnwell, SC by Brad of 32

I do know that our Feaslers were really Fuesslers or Fussler with the two dots over the U. They were from Friedrichstahl, Baden, near Karlesruhe in Germany. Others from this French Huguenot village in Germany went to SC in the 1700's. I think Bonnet family members and Herlans went there. They are all related and intermarried back in Germany.
Your Feaslers maybe came from there, too. Feasler spelling is a close English spelling of the German word. My great-great grandfather, Karl Fuessler/Feasler adopted the Feasler spelling when he started his green-garden and greenhouse business because his customers could better deal with it. Old Karl was known as "Charles Feasler" at the time of his death. He came to Erie, PA in 1834. Check on the Friedrichstahl connection.
