In Reply to: Thomas Kesler of Salem County, New Jersey by Steven Smith of 1468

Hi, Thomas' wife Beulah is my 2nd cousin 4 times removed. I have found Thomas G. Kesler, his siblings and parents on two censuses. In 1860 they are in Upper Penns neck, Salem, NJ and in 1870 they are in Woodstown. In 1880 he is married and working on his father's farm in Pilesgrove.

On the 1860 Census: [if you have ancestry.com it is: http://search.ancestry.com/iexec?htx=View&r=an&dbid=7667&iid=4235191_00419&fn=Thomas+G&ln=Kesler&st=r&ssrc=pt_t17107372_p631792572_kpidz0q3d631792572z0q26pgz0q3d32768z0q26pgPLz0q3dpid&pid=55036586]

if not, the details are: Kesler, George [head], farmer, b. abt 1816, wife: Sarah C. [her maiden name is "Penn"] b. abt 1826, children: Joseph G. (b. abt 1846), Harriet F. (b. abt 1847), Maria L.(b. abt 1848), George B.(b. abt 1851), Catherine C.(b. abt 1852), Charles L.(b. abt 1854), then Thomas G.(b. abt 1856), and finally Hannah H. (b. abt 1859)

On the 1870 Census: [if you have ancestry.com it is: http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=1870usfedcen&h=27763999&ti=0&indiv=try&gss=pt&ssrc=pt_t17107372_p631792572_kpidz0q3d631792572z0q26pgz0q3d32768z0q26pgPLz0q3dpid]

if not the details are: George [head], farmer, b. abt 1816, wife: Sarah [Penn] b. abt 1835 [should be about 1826], children: Joseph (b. abt 1846), Kate.(b. abt 1852), George (b. abt 1851), Charles (b. abt 1855), then Thomas (b. abt 1857), and finally Hannah (b. abt 1859), Sarah (b. abt. 1862), Maria (b. abt 1850)
(b. abt 18)

On the 1880 Census: [if you have ancestry.com it is: http://search.ancestry.com/iexec?htx=View&r=an&dbid=6742&iid=4242294-00134&fn=Thomas&ln=Kesler&st=r&ssrc=pt_t17107372_p631792572_kpidz0q3d631792572z0q26pgz0q3d32768z0q26pgPLz0q3dpid&pid=36228549
- - -
if not the details are: George [head], farmer, b. abt 1817, wife: Sarah [Penn] b. abt 1826, Thomas b. abt 1856, Beulah b. abt. 1858 , their daughter Sallie [Sarah] b. abt 1860 and there is a Sarah Darlington or Dartington b. abt 1869 listed as a granddaughter as well.

the 1880 census ties the other two censuses together as listing the same family.

That is all the information I have on Thomas and his family.
