Hello,

Your William is supposed to be the son of the immigrant Willem Gissel who died before 8 March 1748.

There should be Lancaster County orphans court records then and in 1761. The probate records for Wilhem Izell/Kissell/Gesel etc. named four children -- Augustine, Mandline, Christopher and William.

I am not sure about the supposed ages of these children. Usually estates are not distributed to minors. Only the oldest one's proposed age would make him 21.

Best,
Vicki
