    from Allegheny Passages

    Another daughter of Elder Daniel Leatherman, Hannah (ca. 1772-1865) married 1) John Baker and 2) John Keiser. Hannah and John Keiser lived in Fayette Co., W. Va., where they were members of the Georges Creek congregation at an early date. After Keiser's death, Hannah moved to the Shiloh congregation where she died in 1865 at the age of 93. Members of the Keiser family had helped to found Shiloh Church, and she may have been living with one of her sons. Several Keiser families were prominent in the Shiloh Church during the Nineteenth Century.

    I'm looking for a will or other items to prove parents for both Henry and Prudence Keiser. I have papers from shirt-tail relations that have no documentation but just family knowledge for the following:

    Undocumented parents
    Prudence's: Simeon Everly Sr. b 15 Oct 1763 in MD d 17 Mar 1843 Monongalia Co. and Prudence Howard b 1769 in PA, d 06 Oct 1841 Van Voorhis, WV.

    Henry's: Johannes Keyser d after 1850 in Monongalia Co. and Hanna Leatherman d 1865 Barbour Co.

    I have a copy of the 1850 Barbour County census showing my family.
    448 448
    Henry Kyser* 55 Millwright MD
    Prudence 49 MD
    Martin 24 VA (Preston Co) ** My family's from
    Reason 21 VA
    Henry 18 Farmer VA
    Sarah 17 (?) VA
    Simeon 15 VA

    *Kyser as spelled on the Census, but a letter I have written by Henry in 1862 is signed Henry and Prudy Keiser.

    Martin and his family are on the 1860 Census in Iowa. A Biographical Record of Iowa states that Martin and His wife Sarah Thompson Keiser were Virginians and came from their home in the "Old Dominion" in 1859. I don't know if this helps,

    Note: I found a notation in the 1860 Census giving Henry Kieser, 65, MD, Millwright/Dunkard. Maybe there are records of the Dunkard church that could help you. M.Lew
