Bernhardt KASTEN (var sp) Manitowoc/Milw
Posted by: colleen Date: June 21, 2001 at 17:34:59
  of 221

I'm looking for BERNHARD/Bernhardt who goes by at least six different spellings -- KASTEN, KASSON, KESSON, KEPON, KISTNER, KESMER, KISSNER, KISMER, etc. He dies in Milwaukee in 1899 at the National Home for Disabled Veterans.

His second wife, Johanna SCHUH EHLINGER, is my ancestor and it is her death I'm trying to confirm. There is a death record of interest for one Johanna KASTEN in Milwaukee that I'm trying to run down.

I believe Bernhardt had two children (Frank and Eliza, c 1855-1859) from his first marriage (I have no addl info), both presumably alive in 1898 (via pension papers). Johanna Ehlinger brought 5 Ehlinger kids to the marriage. In addition, they had at least one child (Bernard) together who appears not to have lived much past 1870.

The couple was married in Manitowoc Co in 1867.

Bernhardt is from Oldenburg, Germany. His marriage to Johanna records parents as Joseph and Catherina KASSON.

Thanks for any info.
