We have now connected this branch to the T?uffelen branch. There is also an Esely spelling in the Wynigen branch, but there appears to be no direct connection with this branch.
The spelling of this surname was originally Esely, but a clerk in the army spelled it Esley. The ancestors were Johannes Iseli (b 5/12/1807 Switzerland, d 3/17/1900 Walworth NY) and Maria Gueder (b 3/17/1806 or 12 Switzerland, d bef 1900 NY). They came to the US about 1850 with their 10 children (3 boys and 7 girls). We believe that Johannes' parents were Johannes and Verena Iseli. Also, that Maria's parents were Ludwig Jakob G?der and Christine Charlotte Brunna. Their children were Jonas, Benjamin, Alfred, Luise, Lina, Celistine, Magdalena, Adell, and 2 others.
Jonas (b 4/18/1837) married Elizabeth Lisher. Their children were Alfred, Emma, Cora, Ernest, Edward, Ferdinard, Leroy, Irving, Maude, Elizabeth, and Adely.
Benjamin married Anna Sutter. Their children were Alfred and Charles. He died in a prison camp during the Civil War.
Alfred married Marry Clum. Their children were Fred, Hayes, and Jean.
