Dianne, do you know anything about the Fesler Cemetery mentioned in your posting? Where is it located and is this where Florida's parents (Fredrick Fesler and Martha Haught) are buried? Frederick was my 2nd greatgrandfather. My greatgrandfather was Cornelius Carney Fesler. Thanks for any information that you can provide. Dana
