Frederick Kesler Sr. (1816 - 1899) Profile

Frederick Kesler, Sr.

Although a non-contemporary typescript list in Journal History (Supp. after 31 Dec. 1851, 6A) lists the Kesler family as coming in the 1851 John Brown company, Kesler's autobiography states that he was a captain of the 2nd Ten in Orson Pratt's company. Pratt was a nominal leader in the Cummings company so the Kesler family must have traveled in the Cummings company, not the Brown company.

In the 1859 company, he was appointed as "bishop" or "commissary" of the company.
