Shesler, Shisler
surname & burials
Fayette County Iowa
Specifically Albert Shesler and Dollie Deeds of the Arlington area of Fairifield.Twp.
Albert apparently is from the Shisler/Shesler line that moved from Perry.Co.OH and clustered around Vernon.Co.WI,
and were also in Allamakee.Co.IA, just across the Mississippi River from Vernon.Co.WI.

Albert Shesler, age 10, moved from the Lansing area of Allamakee.Co.IA, with is parents (father Paul), in about 1879.
Paul Shisler farmed near Brush Creek (Arlington).
The family has been extremely difficult to track so additions/corrections are welcome.
Information and speculations are in the family tree copied below the burials.
There will be some new/unknown info available in the tree, but also areas needing correction and additions.

Albert Shesler married Dollie Deeds in 1894, both of the Arlington area.
They farmed 80a in section 19, 2.5mi NW of Arlington until 1915, when they moved to Manchester, then shortly to Fayette village.
They lived a couple of blocks from the Volga River, on Union.St, in Fayette, Albert a day laborer, Dollie a home laudress, until their deaths in the mid 1940's.
In their later years there were numerous medical issues, with both spending time in the County Hospital (County Home).
Albert died in 1943 at Mason City after an operation, but would have been at the County Farm at the time as was listed buried at the County Farm.
Albert's father (assumed) Paul, died at the County Farm in 1904 and was also buried there.
 Dollie nee Deeds, died at the County Hospital/Farm in 1947 and was buried with her family at Taylorville Cem.
Albert and Dollie lost several children in infancy, with no found adult children to date.
Dollie Deeds' family tree is rather easy to follow/build, however Albert's is confusing.

Do not trust as totally valid any tree/report data.  Often World Connect or Ancestry trees/data were utilized as a foundation upon which to add material gleamed from obits, articles, histories, biographies, stories, burials, censuses and other data collected.  My primary interest is generally the pioneer history and includes linking village and neighborhood surnames together for several of the early generations.  Family connections, locations and other data may have to be speculated in order to continue a complex series of inter-related projects.  My web pages are primarily personal study projects for note keeping, but can also jump start others.  I have a huge number of projects started and rarely return to edit/update material unless interest is rekindled.  Any web pages online are usually linked off the 'Index Page.'  Numerous projects are not put on web pages but are in draft form or in the form of photo albums on the 'Photo Hosting Site.'   I may have material for research use in storage, plus will/can upload other people's material if appropriate.
