I am trying to contact any relative of John Fiester who created the Apostolic Clock that is on display at Hershey Park. It states he was a native of Lancaster. My family has Fiester relatives from the Lycoming County area and my Mother stated that John is a relative. I do not know when he was born, but the pamphlet I have states that he made this clock in the year 1878. My goal is to send a copy of this to a more direct relative of his.
