In Reply to: Kesler Family History by Ric Tobin of 1468

Ric, I would definitely be interested. I had contacted you quite some time ago, tying in my Kesler ancestor (Elias, son of Peter, born in 1820 and married to Sarah Pontious). I no longer know who has the original photo, but I do have a photocopy of a picture my grandpa had that he called "the Kesler brothers". I determined after looking at the photo closer that one of the 3 was definitely older than the other two and then got to wondering if this might actually be a photo of Elias with his older brother Abraham and his father Peter (who was living with his son, Abraham, toward the end of his life). Elias died in early 1866 and Peter died in early 1862, so if this picture truly is of Peter, it must have been taken before February 1862. I will treasure this photo of my Kesler ancestors!
