My Greatgrandfather Joseph M. Kierscey lived in Galena, KS. before it was Galena, what I'm wondering is, are there any Kiersceys left in this part of Kansas? Is there anyone with any knowledge of any Kiersceys? There are 5 of us Kierscey descendants and we are looking for any others, we are beginning to think we are the last of the Kiersceys.
