Adam RUSLER is listed in 1850 Vanderburgh Co IN Census - Pigeon Twp. He is age 28 and born in Germany. Could he be the brother of Joseph RUSLER of Licking Co OH? Joseph, who would have been about 35 in 1850, immigrated from Germany in the late 1830's with his wife, 2 sons (John and Joseph) and possibly daughter Catherine. By his second wife he had children Adam, George, Joseph II, Lena, Annie and Mary. All stayed in OH except for Catherine's descendents who moved to IL and Adam who moved to IN, IL or IA. Could the younger Adam have been named after his father's brother and moved to Vanderburgh Co to be near the uncle for whom he was named? Was the Adam of Vanderburgh Co a brother to Joseph of OH?
