Kerstetter-Bitler m. 1859 Stark Co, OH

Does anyone have further information on the 1859 marriage between Sarah Bitler and David Kerstetter referred to in "History of Starke County", Perrin, 1881. 1880 Census lists Sarah was born in Ohio and her parents were from Baden (Germany), but I am trying to determine if they are related to Daniel Bitler, of Schuylkill Co., PA, who helped found the town of St John's, Allen Co, OH in 1835.

"Our subject was raised on the farm of his father, where he was born, until 1853, after which he made various changes, buying several farms; located in town in 1865; in 1842, he married Sarah Weygant, born in Lawrence Tp., daughter of Henry Weygant, one of the early settlers of that township; she died in 1858, leaving four children - David, Melissa, John and Benjamin; he married the second time, in 1859, Sarah Bitler, born in Canton Tp., daughter of John Bitler; by this wife he has four children - Marietta, Viola, Sadie M. and Marcellus."

Thanks,
Glenn
