Francis Wiest

M, #15344, d. 1917
  • Last Edited: 24 Feb 2007
  • Francis Wiest was born Klingerstown, Schuylkill County, PA.1
  • He was the son of Albert Klinger Wiest and Priscilla Adams.
  • The list of children of Francis and Ida is uncertain. According to the 1910 Census, Ida was no longer married to Francis but rather to John F. Schreffler. Perhaps Francis had died by that time. In any event, Ida was listed as the mother of 6 children, four of whom -- Harry, Harper, Clarence, and Harvey -- were living with her then. Those four along with Edward would comprise 5 of Ida's 6 children, but the precise identity of the sixth child is not clear. A number of sources list a number of additional children for Ida and Francis.2
  • Francis Wiest died in 1917.1
