Kasten Family Genealogy Forum
Do you know anything about the ancestry of Amelia Samp? Seeing the names Samp and Kasten in your posting caught my curiosity.
In my family in Milwaukee, I have Emil Sampe, who married, first, Anna Staffen, and had 6 children. Their youngest child was about 2 years old, when Anna died, about 1910. One year later, Emil Sampe married his first wife's best friend, Marie (Mayme) Johannes, whose half-sister was Flora Kasten. (Flora married Julius Henke.) The household included Anna's nephew and mother, and Mayme and Flora were beloved by the whole family.
