Query: Frederick Kysar, Jennings County

            Looking for Proofs - Frederick KYSAR (b. 1761, Berks Co, PA; d. aft. Jan. 20, 1841, Jennings Co, IN) & Descendants    (Kysar, Kyser, Keiser, Kizer, Kiser, Keyser, Kayser, etc.)

            I am researching my 4th great-grandfather, Frederick Kysar (many spelling variations of his last name; b. 1761, Berks Co, PA; d. aft. Jan. 20, 1841, Jennings Co, IN) & his descendants. My mother, Kathy (KYSAR) Howard wrote the "Kysar Kin" book. I am in the process of applying to the DAR, & the only evidence I am needing is to prove the "family connection"; needing documents to prove the father/child relationship between Frederick & his son, Samuel (my direct line); but I would also like to prove father/child relationship with all of the other children as well.

            He & his wife Mary Ann/Meriba (Cornwall/Cornell) had 10 children: Solomon, William, John, Thomas Russell, Elizabeth, Phoebe, Samuel, Jacob, Frederick Jr., & Sarah. Frederick was born/lived in Berks Co PA; moved to MD; married in Jefferson Co KY, lived in Henry Co & Fayette Co, KY; & lived/died in Jennings Co, IN.

            If you have or know anyone that has any info or documents/records, old family bible records, old family letters, birth/marr/death records, obituaries, old family photos, newspaper articles, church records, cemetery/burial records - please contact me at
