I found a Anton Fessler on the 1855 WI, census living in Sheboygan city and county.
when I was doing a search on some of my Fessler ancestors. my ggrandmother Marie Anna Fessler was born in Sheboygan, Wi on Jan. 13, 1895 and she married Edward Gentz. Her parents were Peter Anthony Fessler and Elizabeth Mary Hammes. thats all I have on my Fessler's but it looks like we might be working on the same family.
email me at RSFellie@msn.com if you have more info on that line of Fessler's.

Thanx,
Rich Fellie

My Anton Fessler supposedly emmigrated in the 1860's but I have not proven this out yet. Sheboygan is next to Manitowoc. Most came through Milwaukee and as they headed North, they would have hit Sheboygan first. Of course, we also have county lines that may have moved.

Cheryl,

My mom got the following info from an Anton Fessler Death record at the Manitowoc Co. WI. Courthouse.
Anton Fessler was born March 31, 1812 in Obirchauson, Germany to George Fessler also born in Germany, Mother unknown. He died Dec. 11, 1897 Eaton Twp. Manitowoc Co. WI. at the age of 85yr 8mo and 11 days. he was sick for 6 weeks and cause of death was Sersrosis of the liver. His wife is listed as Fraziska ??? and he is buried at St. Gregonis Cemetery, St. Nazianz, WI.
the death record can be ordered by Vol.6, Page 28.
and at this time we haven't been able to match any children up on this Anton Fessler to see if he's the Anton were looking for.

Rich,

May I ask where (locations) of the 3 Anton's? Our Anton also had a son Anton and some of the other family members named their children Anton. Once I nail some of these down, I can post the information but want to verify it vs assumptions.

Thank you.

Cheryl,
My Mom lives in Manitowoc, WI and has been researcher the Fessler Name for me in Manitowoc and Sheboygan, WI. I'll forward your question to her, but I believe she found the older one and possibly one other in Sheboygan and then all 3 in Manitowoc. She just mailed me some of the stuff yesterday so I'll have to get back to you on this though.

Cheryl,

So far my Fessler's have been from Sheboygan,
My gggrandfather Peter Anthony Fessler was born in Sheboygan City in 1851 and he married Elizabeth Mary Hammes in 1875 and their daughter, my ggrandmother Anna Marie Fessler was born in 1895, also in Sheboygan, and she married Edward Gentz.

more info.

and Peter Anthony Fessler's parents were Anton Fefsler/Fessler and Agatha Kinsler (or something close to that, it was hard to read the writing on Peter's birth record.)
Which gives us 2 Anton Fessler's, this one that I'm from and the info on the Anton that I sent you Earlier and he is buried in Manitowoc.
So far thats all that I have.
