I don't know if these are your SCHISSLER's or not, but this is what I have
found.

Descendants of George Schissler

Generation No. 1

1. GEORGE1 SCHISSLER was born in Europe.

Notes for GEORGE SCHISSLER:
Sometimes known as John George SCHISSLER. According to the Monnet Family
Genealogy, (MFG) he settled in Berks County, Pennsylvania in 1740. His name
appears in local records in subsequent years.

The MFG also talks about other immigrant Schisslers. "There were several
immigrant Schisslers, but all undoubtedly of the same family. By a
comparison of dates and a land entry in the State Department at Harrisburg,
Pennsylvania it seems very clear that the immigrant ancestor of the other
Schisslers was JORG SCHISSLER, whose name was spelled as "Schussler" and who
came as a "palantine," imported in the ship "Mary" of London (see ante page
938) Sept. 26, 1732 and was recorded in the ship Captain's list as aged 18
years; but the same list gives the name of HENRY SCHISSLER, aged 52; HANCE
JACOB SCHISSLER, aged 22 years and HENRY SCHISSLER, age 16 years, which would
make it appear that the former was the father and the latter two the brothers
of GEORGE SCHISSLER.

"Also, Sept. 24, 1742, JOHN GEORGE SCHISSLER came in the ship "Robert &
Alice" (see ante page 889).

"Again in 1737 GEORGE SCHISSLER, SR., and GEORGE SCHISSLER, Jr, were recorded
as emigrating to Pennsylvania, (see ante page 889); these undoubtedly
belonged to the same family."

Child of GEORGE SCHISSLER is:
2.i.CONRAD2 SCHISSLER, b. 1730-1735.

Generation No. 2

2. CONRAD2 SCHISSLER (GEORGE1) was born 1730-1735.

Notes for CONRAD SCHISSLER:
According to the Monnet Family Genealogy, he, "was very prominent in Berks
County affairs. He served in both Indian wars and the War of the Revolution
(see ante page 434) ...had a large family, but no will or Bible record has
given the genealogy of his family."

In addition to Anna Margaret and Conrad, he probably also had a son, George,
who appears in certain records.

Children of CONRAD SCHISSLER are:
3.i.ANNA MARGARET3 SCHISSLER, b. December 22, 1732; d. December
14, 1797.
ii.CONRAD SCHISSLER.

Generation No. 3

3. ANNA MARGARET3 SCHISSLER (CONRAD2, GEORGE1) was born December 22, 1732,
and died December 14, 1797. She married CHRISTIAN BRAUCHER Abt. 1742 in
Pennslyvania1, son of MICHAEL BRAUCHER and ANNA MARIA.

Notes for ANNA MARGARET SCHISSLER:
The Monnet Family Genealogy says she was born Feb 22, 1732.

Notes for CHRISTIAN BRAUCHER:
He was listed in one genealogy as Jacob Christian and also as Christopher.
He and his wife Anna Margaret are buried in the New Bethel churchyard, two
sandstones, with almost illegible inscriptions, marking their graves.

LDS lists the marriage as about 1742. This cannot be right, Chris. would
only be 13, and Anna would be 10. Maybe it is a typo that should be 1752,
which makes more sense.

(Birth and death dates from BRAUCHER Bible, Monnet, p. 920)

>From Monnet Family Genealogy, p. 920:

"VI. Family Records. Concerning the Braucher Family records, sev-
eral years ago there came into the possession of Mrs. Mary Jane Monnett-
Hull of Findlay, Ohio, the old family Bible which had been in the Braucher
family for over a hundred years and the same Bible as mentioned in the
will of Catherine Braucher, wife of Conrad' (see ante. page 657). It is
now in possession of Mrs. Hull's daughter, Mrs. Attie Hull-Metzler of
Columbus. Ohio. The Bible itself is a curiosity and a unique heirloom,
being of course in the German language, and, as an entry shows, was
presented to Christopher Braucher by his mother on his birthday, Decem-
ber 15, 1781. "
