Gale,

I just checked out the 1850 census records for Miami County, Indiana, and
found that both Joseph and Daniel are reported as being born in North
Carolina. I think I have to recant on my original argument. Maybe better
than not to treat them as John's children.

Not so sure I agree with you conjecture. If you look for Daniel Kessler in
1870 in Miami Co IN, you will see that he says he was born in NC.
