Looking for information on the parents of Abraham Ressler, born June 20, 1820. According to the 1880 census of Madison Twp, Tipton, IN Abraham lists that he was born in PA. Two of my aunts insist that he was born in Germany and when he was around 9 years of age he traveled with his family to America. My aunts said that Abraham traveled with his family from PA to Indiana on a covered wagon and that Abraham did not speak very good English and had a German Bible with him.
Possible brothers are Jacob Ressler born 1817 and John S. Ressler born 1802. All three were in Tipton, IN in the early founding years of that town. Abraham settled in the town of New Lancaster thought to have been named after Lancaster, PA. Between 1866-1868 he moved his family to Rice, MN. Jacob and his family also went to Rice, MN. Sometime after 1868 Abraham moved back to Tipton Co., IN and Jacob remained in MN. Abraham married Elizabeth Jane Letsinger in Tipton, IN on Dec. 25, 1845. They had the following children: Jeremiah, John Wesley, Susan, Angeline, Mary Jane, Emaline, Ella, Nettie May and Ida Alice. All children were born in Indiana with the exception of Emaline, Ella and Nettie May who were born in Minnesota.
Any information would be appreciated - thanks
