I have information on the descendants from Georg Heinrich Kessler from Germany, who emigrated to Glueckstal, Odessa, South Russia in the early 1800s. Georg's descendants were born in the village of Glueckstal, South Russia. By 1899, Georg's son, Philipp, his son, Philipp, and his son Philipp, traveled by ship to New York City and settled in Edmunds County, SD. Kessler was now spelled "Keszler" (presumably how it was spelled on the ship's manifest. By 1920, the two younger Phillip Keszler families moved to Texas, settling in Brazoria County. The Kesslers were farmers several generations repeated. Any additional information is welcome.
