Casner Spelling of Name

Thanks for posting a response to my post.

It is believed that my particular Casner line is of German descent and may have originally immigrated from Germany to PA, then made their way to MD/VA.

However, I don't think there is any connection to my particular line and your line. The reason for this is my oldest proven ancestor was married 7-2-1801 in Washington Co., VA; by 1818 he had made his way to MO.

While I haven't proved it yet, the father of Jonas Casner mentioned above is believed to be John Nicholas Karsner/Kestner/Casner, Sr. (b.circa 1746 PA).

Again, because of the approximate dates of birth, the fact most were illeriate, and the constant changing in the spelling of the name, it very well may be they are of the same line but as of now, no concrete connection.
