250 Years of Yeisley Families

Added to the Local History Collection, this study of the Yeisley family attempts to link all known Yeisleys to Nichlaus Yeisli and his wife Julianna who arrived in Philadelphia on August 28, 1750. In 1790 George Adam Yeisley and his wife Christina took up a track of land in Smithfield Township, in what is now Monroe County. They were one of the first settlers in the region.
