Frances Martin Kesler/GA
Posted by: Rebecca Acree (ID *****5561) Date: February 12, 2006 at 20:13:29
  of 1468

Frances Elizabeth Kesler was my gg grandmother. She was the daughter of James Martin, Jr. and Catherin Wheeler. Frances married James Clayton Acree b 1862 in Banks County Georgia. Francs and James had 5 children: James Thomas, William Henry Terrell, Robert Walter, Georgia P.?, and Cordelia. Frances Kesler was killed in a farming accident. My grandfather, Walter Robert, was born in 1894 in Banks County Georgia. After his mother's death, he and his four siblings remained in Banks County and were raised by Martin and Kesler relatives. James Clayton Acree , leaving his children in Georgia, moved to Texas to work with his brother, Wyllie. He married twice again and fathered an additional 4-5 children. He returned to Georgia and lived with his son, WHT Acree, until his death in 1930. He is buried near the county line of Banks and Stephens Counties in Georgia in the shadow of Currahee Mountain. I have not researhed the Keslers. There remain today descendants of Frances Kesler Acree (both Keslers and Acrees) living in Toccoa, Georgia.
