    • Johann Casper Nößler son of Johannes Nößler (1802 - 1867) and Margerethe Elisabethe Fleischmann (1810 - 1838) was born in Wernshausen, Saxe-Meiningen, Thuringen, Germany. He was a mid-level (Floßeri) official who rafted logs down the Werra River until the railroad was built through the town in 1858. He, his wife, Christiane, their first child, Karoline Ernestine, and Christiane's parents, Johann Sebastian (1803 - 1879) and Katharina Barbara Elizabeth Malsch (1803 -1881) immigrated to the USA in 1860. They sailed from Hamburg on the barque "Atalanta" leaving March 29, 1860 and arriving in New York May 8, 1860. They arrived in Power's Lake, WI soon after where they were indentured to a relative and saved their money to purchase a farm in Lyons in 1870. They became citizens in 1863. Casper and Christiane died 18 days apart in a smallpox epidemic in Lyons. The original name was Nößler (o with an umlaut and an esset- double s) before they died it was spelled variously as Nesler, Nessler, Nesslar, Noessler, Nosler, etc. after their deaths the children got together and decided on Nesslar which was the closest English pronounciation. They had 8 children: Karoline Ernestine (Carrie), Marguerita Elizabetha (Bessie), Carl Frederick (Charles), Anna Sarah, Reinhold Andreas (Frank), Fredericka, Herrman Wilhelm (William), and Lui (Louis) Casper.
