          These were assumed Anna Maria's (Mary's) parents, though she was likely an Eppert according to a birth and baptism certificate (original in German | English translation) for the family of Christian Strole and his wife Elizabeth Kiser (daughter of Michael and Mary Kiser) from the 1820s. The document gives the names of all the children of Michael and Mary Kiser and identifies Michael's father as Valentin. This is according to and provided by researcher Mark B. Arslan, with much appreciation.
The Kiser and Rexrode familtes lived about 25 miles from each other in Hessen (Germany) prior to immigration to America. New information about the arrival of the Kisers in America and the migration from Pennsylvania to Virginia |

****NOTE****
Either the above Valentine and Maria
are the parents of Johann Michael
Kiser or the Valentine and Agness
below are the parents. Many researchers
assume that the Valentine married to 
Agness is the father of Johann
Michael Kiser though this is not
verified.
