Andrew Frederick & Minerva Apphira (Buckner) Kersh Bible Record - Rankin

Note: Andrew Frederick Kersh was the son of Jacob and his second wife, Eva
Margaretta Geysler (or Eve Margaret Gisler ).  He came to Ms. with his
in 1833 and settled in Rankin Co.
      Jacob Kersh was in the War of 1812, and received a land grant of 50
in Rankin Co. for his service.  After his death Rachael got a pension of
per month.  They raised a family of 13 children and their descendants are
scattered all over the U.S.
      It is said that Andrew Frederick's grandfather, Andrew Kersh, came
Germany to America when a small boy, with his father.  He received 2 land
grants: one for 113 acres in Craven Co. in 1766 and one of 700 acres in
Orangeburg District in 1805.  He served in the Revolutionary War, enlisting
June, 1777.  His first wife was Rhoda ___.  They had only one son, Joseph,
perhaps several daughters.  In 1786 Andrew gave 100 acres of land to Joseph,
located on Cypress Creek in Orangeburg District, S.C.
      Andrew's second wife was Eva Margaretta Geysler daughter of Jacob and
Maria Catherine Geysler, whom he married 25 Mar, 1788.  Eva came to America
from Germany at age 3 with her mother and brother, Frederick, on the ship
Belfast Packet, landing at Charleston, S.C. in Oct., 1866.  Her father had
over from Germany on ship, Britannia.  He received a land grant of 250 acres
Orangeburg Dist., S.C.
      We believe Andrew died between 1805, when he got the second land
and 1810 - 1810 census does not list him.  According to the 1810 census Eva
was still living and with her were 4 boys and 2 women about her own age, who

John & Mary Ann Rhodes Kersh Bible Record - Rankin Co., Ms.

Note: John Kersh was a descendant of Hans George Kersh who came, with his
and six children, from Germany to Charleston, S.C. by way of Rotterdam,
on ship St. Andrew, with Captain Brown 16 Feb, 1744.  Three of the children
were bound out to pay for their passage.  Hans George received a land grant
250 acres in Saxe-Gotha, now Lexington Co., S.C.  He deeded this land to his
son, Conrad, in 1751.  Conrad also received a grant of 50 acres in 1752
adjoining his father's land.  Andrew Kersh received a grant of 113 acres in
Richland Co. in 1766, and his brother, John, got a grant which joined
land.  George's grant was in Barnwell Co.  It is believed that the other two
children were daughters, and that two more boys, William and Jacob, were
after they came to S.C.
      Andrew Kersh was one of the children who was bound out.  He was in the
Rev. War in the 6th S.C. Regiment, enlisting 23 June, 1777.  His first wife
Rhoda ___.  They had only one son, Joseph, to whom Andrew gave 100 acres of
land on Cypress Creek in Orangeburg Dist. in 1886.  We believe there was at
least one, or perhaps more daughters.
      Andrew married Eva Margaretta Geysler on 25 Mar, 1788.  She came from
Germany to America with her mother, Maria Catherine, and brother, Frederick,
1766 on the ship Belfast Packet., landing at Charleston, S.C. in Oct. 1766.
Her father, Jacob Geysler ,came over on the ship Britannia.  He received a
grant of 250 acres on Cow Castle Creek in S.C. near where Andrew Kersh later
owned land.  Andrew and Eva, according to census records, has four son.  The
first two were Jacob and William, born in 1789 and 1791.  Both married in
Jacob to Rachel Easterling d/o Enos and Jean Bradwell Easterling, 4 Nov,
and William to Rachel Shuler on 24 May, 1812.  Both lad large families and
brought them to Ms. about 1833 where they settled in Rankin Co.  We think
other two sons of Andrew and Eva were Andrew and Evan.
      Jacob Kersh served in the War of 1812 in S.C.  His gun used to be in
Historical Museum in Jackson, Ms., but when the Museum was moved to the new
building, it was misplaced.  Jacob and Rachel had twelve children: John,
David, Andrew Frederick, William Eli, Elizabeth Jane, Mary Ann, Alvin Jacob,
Lewis Evans, Susannah R., Richard C., Ezra Thomas, and Enos R.  Jacob was a
farmer.  When he died in 1851 everything was sold and Rachael lived with
one child and then another until her death at age 91.  Both Jacob and
were members of Shiloh Methodist Church in Rankin Co. and are buried in that
      John was the first child of Jacob and Rachael Kersh.  He married Mary
Rhodes ,about whose ancestors nothing is known.  John was a farmer and a
Baptist.  He raised a large family and his children scattered over Tx. and
Ms. Delta, with a few remaining in Rankin Co.  John and two of his son,
Wesley, who was a Baptist Minister, and John Leonidas, served in the Civil
 William Wesley was wounded in the Battle of Shiloh.  One of John's
descendants, of whom we are very proud, was Means Johnston ,who was an
in the Navy, and later was Commander of the South Pacific.  Both John and
Ann lived very long lives.  At their deaths John was 87 and Mary was 92.
are buried in Oakdale Baptist Cemetery in Langford, Rankin Co., Ms.
