I'm researching the Kissells that surrounded the Erie, PA area; specifically Henry born 11/30/1858 married to Katherine and died 10/18/1932, brother to John b. 1861, and Jacob F. born 10/06/1863 who was married to Flora Hindson.
My husband comes from the Henry line. I cannot seem to locate their father; although, in one census it shows an Ernestine Horning listed as being "mother" to Henry, and the 1880 census shows Henry, John, and Jacob as "step-son"s to a John Hicks with a wife named Ernestine.
Any help concerning this branch would be appreciated.
I have noticed that the census takers used either spelling and Henry went from 2 l's to 1 and then back to 2.
Thanks in advance,
