About Mathias Cristler

Matthais and his two younger sons, David and Michael removed to the land grant located in the center of the present city of Madison, Madison County, Virginia, in the early German settlement of 1714-1726 on the Robinson River and White Oak Run which was then in the County of Spotsylvania, Colony of Virginia, where they joined other early German colonists of 1717 and received a land grant just NE of Madison. Matthais left Germantown for Virginia because of their dissatisfaction with Lutheranis, whic was non-existent in the Colony of Pennsylvania. Matthais's name is sometimes seen as Castler. He was granted a patent of 300 acres dated September 28, 1728. The "Old Crisler" house in Madison on Highway 29 sits on the same land patented to Matthais Crisler in 1728.
