Am looking to find who DEXTER KISER's parents are and his wife MARY and two daughters. Believe they were all born in Washington county.
DEXTER was born 13 Nov, 1817/1819 Vermont,
MARY was born 1819 Vermont,
CATHERINE born 1836 Vermont,
AVALINA born 1842 Vermont,
found them in 1850 census in Concord, Bureau, ILL and 1855 ILL, state census had them still living there. 1860 census living in Ozawkie, Jefferson, Kansas Territory with a daughter named WADARILLA (UDEVELLA)born 1851 in Lawrence KS. Evidently MARY died before 1863 as DEXTER was married to another in Tama county Iowa. Any information would be greatly appreciated. THANKS !!!

I may/ may not have the parents, but offer a clue.

I found an obituary for Philo Kiser, Wednesday, March 26, 1890
Paper: Argus and Patriot ** Montpelier, VT

News was received on Monday of the death of Philo Kiser, of Quincy, Cal., on March 6th. Mr. Kiser was a native of Plainfield (Vt.) where he resided 30 years.

He started for the west where he remained there for the rest of his life. At the time of his death, he was 74 years
old, and unmarried.
He was the brother of H. O. Kiser (possibly Harvey O. Kiser)
of Plainfield, and Dexter Kiser, who now resides in Kansas.

If it is Harvey O Kiser, his parents listed on the death are : Orrin Kiser,​ Fanny Olds.
There are possibly two other brothers of Harvey:
Levi P. Kiser
