Looking for Dysert families, both past and present
My mother was a Dysert stemming from Johnstown, Pennsylvania,
and later from Northeastern Ohio, where I was born. (Geauga County)
Our ancestor's go back to William Dysert, born in 1812 in Adams County,Pennsylvania, and married to Cordelia Sharretts. From here back we are at a brick wall, not able to find William's parents.
My great-grandfather William John Dysert moved the family to Ohio
around 1907-8 in order to work on the railroad with his brother George. (George was later killed in a railroad accident). The family has pretty much stayed in this area in and around east Cleveland.
