For today's Tombstone Tuesday, I am sharing the gravesite of my husband's recently discovered 5th great grandfather, Dieterich "Teter" Kesling. He was born in Steinau, Hesse-Hanau, Germany on 11 March, 1750. He arrived in Philadelphia with his family in 1752 and he served in the Virginia Militia during the Revolutionary War.
He married Margaret "Peggy" Null on 1 October, 1808 in Warren County, Ohio and he lived and owned a farm there until his death on 10 December, 1845. He is buried in Salem Cemetery in Springboro, Warren County, Ohio.
I will be sharing more about our Kesling family discoveries later this week.
