  of 335

I am ATTEMPTING to see how closely this family may be related to "my" line of KARSTETTER?? Is anyone able to ADD more ....or to CORRECT the errors in this KARSTETTER CASTATOR family that came to south eastern Kansas??
I THINK that John P.CASTATOR's parents MIGHT be John [1791] and Appolonia KERSTETTER of Centre Co Pa to Richland County Ohio bef 1830 ??

John P. [?Perry] CASTATOR KERSTETTER b.3 Jul 1817 Centre Co Pa .. d._________
m.Mary Susan LONG b.15 Oct 1821 .. m.1 Oct 1840 Richland Co Ohio .. d.30 Aug 1896 Allen Co Kansas
........Mary's mother remarried to Henry MUCK in 1841 in Richland Co Ohio.....
1. Samuel M. KERSTETTER b.1842 Ohio
2. Mary E. [?Elizabeth] CASTATOR b.1844 Ohio ..
......[? m. Edward Nelson LEWIS ... b. abt 1844 Pa ..lived 1870 Iola Twp, Allen Co, Kansas]
..........1. Nellie L.LEWIS b. 1869 at Chetopa, LaBette Co Kansas
3. Emily Jane KERSTETTER b. 15 Mar 1845 Illinois .. m. 27 Dec 1864 Allen Co Kansas
.......m.Benjamin Franklin CLARK
..........1. Clara CLARK 1866 d.y
..........2. Ella CLARK 1867 m. Edward BUTLER
..........3. Ernest CLARK 1869 d.y
..........4. Etta CLARK 1872 ... twin .... d.y
..........5. Essie CLARK 1872 ... twin m. Ernest Henry CROOK
..........6. Mary CLARK 1875 ... twin d.y
..........7. John CLARK 1875 ... twin d.y
..........8. Bert Franklin CLARK 1877 m. Nealy Pearl ROGERS
..........9.Roscoe Conglin CLARK 1881 m. Mary LANDERSON
.........10. Emma Jane CLARK 1883 m. George Washington ELLIS
.........11. Franklin CLARK 1885 d.y
4. Parmelia A. KERSTETTER 1847 Illinois
.......m.Victor T.HANSON
5. David A. KERSTETTER
6. Jackson W. KERSTETTER
7. George W. KERSTETTER b.1861 Humboldt, Allen County, Kansas
.......... some of this info came from Clark Ellis <ClarkGen@aol.net>

So we have as a migration pattern .... Centre Co Pa >> to Richland Co Ohio >>> to ??? Illinois >>> to LaBette Co Kansas >>> to Allen Co Kansas????

A member of my KARSTETTERs, Catherine Virene KARSTETTER b.1865 Randolph County Illinois married Wm Riley SHEARHART in 1882 at Chetopa, Labette County, Kansas. She was the dau/o Martin KARSTETTER 1835 and Jane NIXON of Ellis Grove, Randolph Co Illinois. HOW DID SHE COME TO BE THERE?????
So many questions and so many puzzle pieces? Is anyone able to help?

Carol
