KASTNER, August in Little Falls, MN - born where?

We are looking for information on where my G-G Grandfather, August Kastner, was born. August Kastner was born in Germany on February 7, 1852 in Germany. His parents are Aug. Kastner and Veronica Schwecker. August Kastner died in a farm accident, a Runaway of his team of horses. He was run over by a heavily loaded wagon and died of injuries, a crushed chest.

We are not sure where he was born. It is stated that he was born in Germany. He son Joseph Kastner's stated in the 1920 Census that he was born in "Silesia, Germany". Silesia was a province of Germany at the time that they would have lived in Europe.

My Great Grandmother, Adelaide (Hilda) Kastner, was married in 1901 to my Great Grandfather Christen Christensen in Little Falls, MN. My Great Grandfather Christen Christensen died very young from TB in 1904. She then married Albert Eue in Little Falls, MN and lived there until her death in 1965. Her OBIT states that she was born in southern Germany near Heidelburg.

If anyone has any information, we would greatly appreciate getting this information.
