Who Was John Z. Kebler who Lived in Tower City in 1890?

Posted By on July 18, 2016


John Z. Kebler is found on Line 49 of the 1890 Veterans’ Schedule for West Porter Township, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania.  At this time, it is not known who this is or in what Civil War regiment he served.

The known information about him from the census is:

  1. He was a Private in an unknown regiment, with unknown dates of service.
  2. His closest neighbors who were also Civil War veterans were John H. Horn and Joseph Buccannon and their exact service is also unknown.
  3. His post office address was Tower City.
  4. He claimed “ruptured in war” as a disability.

It is possible that his surname was Keubler, Kuebler, Kibbler, Kibler, Kepler, or some other spelling variation, but to date, efforts to find a veteran who lived in Tower City or Porter Township in 1890 who is a good match have been unsuccessful.

Anyone with information about John Z. Kebler is urged to contact the Civil War Research Project via e-mail.
