If you write PLEASE indentify yourself with findagrave. We usually DELETE anything from people that we don't know.
We will gladly add or delete anything that you desire. Our memorials are meant to HONOR the person who passed away, and to leave a record of that person's life, so that those who follow can access the information.
We encourage you to use the "virtual cemetery". You do not need to OWN a memorial to use it.
We transfer according to the findagrave guidelines, but please ask. There are exceptions.
THANK YOU to all the good people who work so hard to make this an exciting and usable site.

RE: Fred Kesler
That's the one. Thanks!!

Fred and Florence are from the Jackson area so there are no other family (that I am aware of) in Lapeer County.

RE: Kesler's
How fun! I love the paths genealogy takes one down. I have a friend whose ancestor also fought at Stone Arabia.

Could you change the "ss" to "s" for Fred Kesler also? Thanks!

Wesley Hanks in St. Cecilia Cem
Wesley died in 2012. Do you have his obit? If not, I'll try to get it;) I've added his memorial in St. Cecilia Cemetery #128680403.

RE: Florence Kesler
In most cases, it IS two 's'! Thanks for changing it.

This family's ancestors were part of the Palatine migration to the Mohawk Valley of New York before the American Revolution. Two fought at the Battle of Oriskany.

We have seen the name, in various generations, recorded as Kessler, Kesseler, Kesler, and Casler. In one generation, children from the same family used Kesler and Casler.

"Casler" is used by Walter D. Edmonds in his 1936 book, "Drums Along the Mohawk," an excellent book. The 1939 movie starring Henry Fonda is horrible.

RE: Florence Kesler / Comer
I see you have changed the spelling of Kesler to Kessler. I am not sure why. I added photos of the markers and her obituary. They consistently spelled their name with one 's'.

Thank you for the great posting of Robert Finney. He is my high school friend and I have know him for over 60 years. I also posted him, but I took mine down when I saw yours.
