Trisler Family
Trisler information, provided indirectly from Richard Cawby, who in Aug 1982provided by letter to Mr. Frank Trisler of Harrodsburg, KY the following information:

Dear Mr. Trisler,

I was pleased to receive your letter of July 15, 1982, inquiring
about Dr. Peter Trisler (Trissler, Tristler) and his old Bible and
medical books. Unfortunately, we do not know the whereabouts of any
of the old books mention in Bennet Young's History of Jessamine co.

My aunt, Margaret Cawby Neal, a grand-daughter of John Thomas Cawby,
has in her possession several old German Bibles and medical books,
but only one of them has any family information recorded in its pages.
Enclosed is a rough copy of that translation….

Also, Mrs. Nelle Ellis, another grand-daughter of John Thomas Cawby
has in her possession an old German Bible printed in 1744. Enclosed
is a copy of the translation of the family records contain therein.
We do not know the relationship of Peter Trissler to those recorded.

John Thomas Cawby was a grandson of Dr. Peter Trissler, and I feel
certain that his mother's name was Susan. I am a great-grandson of
John Thomas Cawby and a great-great-great-grandson of Dr. Peter
Trissler.  ….

Signed: Richard Cawby

A court case of Trisler vs Howser, for Slander was filed 24 March 1819.
(This was Abraham Howser and Mary Elizabeth Trisler, his wife)
4 Oct 1819, a summons was sent to the following to testify for Dr PeterTrisler.
Peter Trisler, Jr. and wife, ELIZABETH TRISLER, SENR, (wife of Dr Peter)
Susanna Canvy and John Trisler.
So we find Susanna's name as Cawby, Canvy and Cawbey. This summons isfairly well written with the name Canvy and in my records I will use thatname.

Susanna married Martin Cawby. Bond by Martin Convey and Peter Trisler.More information on this family is now in my files. She is responsiblefor bringing the name Zike into the Trisler family. She married MartinCawby. Their son, John Thomas Cawby married Catherine Ann Zike, thegrand daughter of Jacob Zike.

Al, the book of Jessamine County marriages records the marriage you're interested in although the bride is listed as Sarah Cawway.  Bondsman was A. H. Myers and consent was given by Susanah Cawway, mother of the bride.  I only have the book, not the marriage license itself.  Also, I live a long distance from Jessamine co so I'm unable to go to the court house to see the actual license.  Sorry.  Gary
