Frank Kantner b1833/5? PA
Posted by: Steven Kantner (ID *****1263) Date: April 25, 2005 at 19:39:59
  of 85

I'm a descendant of Frank (Franklin, Francis?)Kantner and have hit a brick wall with him. I haven't been able to determine his parents. He was born in 1833 or 1835, married to a woman named Emma (born about 1839), worked as a cigar maker in Womelsdorf PA, and had a son named William Kantner.

I lost the link, but once I located information online in a census record that appeared to show a Frank Kantner living with relatives Israel Kantner (brother or cousin?) and Margaret Kantner (mother or aunt?). It matched closely as far as date of birth, age, and location.

If anyone has or comes across any information on Frank and his roots, I would greatly appreciate any help. I would love to do more research locally in Berks County, but I live 1000 miles away from central PA now!

Steve
