In Reply to: Fesler's Pennsylvania Origins by Toby Heathcotte of 131

My line of Feslers came through Johann Abrecht Fessler Sr. & Jr. who arrived on ship "Beulah" ca 1750. Michael Fessler married first Margaretha Buthman, who died ca 1800, after 4-5 children. (I am doing this off the top of my head, so some data is approximate). Michael Fessler then remarried and had ca 10 more childre. He was a resident a Berks Co. all his life, and is buried there. William Fessler's book is the source for much of my data, with his sources listed in Book.
Michael Fessler's son David, b ca 1791, went to Upper NY. He married Elizabeth Hoover, according to family data, and had large family, including Michael Fesler, b NY ca 1822. David Fessler/Fesler died ca 1840 in NY. Wm. Fessler's book doed not detail David Fessler/Fesler's life other than to mention his birth to Michael and Margaretha.
Michael m. Sybil Smith in NY; they moved to Michigan; Michael d.1859.
I also have data on many of the siblings of those mentioned here and will share/help with connections.
If you do not know where you fit in with these Pa. Fesler's, it may be well to work back from your parent as far as you can, then some of us may be able to help you with the connection. Who was your parent, grandparent, ggrandparent, etc?.
Some of your data may be new to this Fesler forum; I do not know as I cannot trace all lines of this prolific family.
