Anna Kinsler of WV
Posted by: anita mcclung (ID *****4188) Date: May 22, 2005 at 06:08:02

I am looking for information on my gr. great grandmother, Anna Kinsler of WV. KINSLER was her first married name.

This is the information that I have been able to put together thus far, most of which was taken from census records ...

Anna Kinsler was born in 1865 and died in 1936 (from head stone and Fayette County, WV court house records).

She immigrated to the US from Germany in about 1904 and according to census records, Anna stated that she was born in Austria, but her children were born in Germany. In the 1910 census, she states that she gave birth to 12 children, but only six are living. I have only been able to find four of those -- Fred, b. abt. 1887, Otto, b. abt. 1893, Anna or Annie (my great grandmother) b. in 1895 and a daughter from her second marriage, Lucy HOFLACKER, b. abt. 1896.

Anna was married we believe 3 times: unknown KINSLER, unknown HOFLACKER and finally to John COHR in 1918, Fayette County, WV. On this marriage bond, Anna states that her parents names were Blases and Rosens and she was born in Tyrola, Austria. It should be noted that Anna was nearly 30 older than John Cohr when they married.

I have sent for the younger Anna's death certificate to see if her father's name might be listed. But because the elder Anna stated her name to be KINSLER on her marriage bond to John Cohr, I woonder if she was ever married to begin with.

Any help would be most appreciated.
