Joseph Kestler from Germany

Is anyone researching a Joseph Kestler who came from Germany and settled in NY? I don't know his wife's name, my grandmother couldn't remember it. He had at least 2 sons, George and William. George married Josephine Mary Farrell and William married Mary Jordan. Joseph lived with his son William in Narrowsburgh. George and Josephine died between 1910 and 1912 leaving behine 3 boys, Joseph, George, and Peter. Joseph was sent to an orphan's home in Port Jervis, NY and the 2 younger boys may have also been sent there or they may have been taken in by their grandmother's family or their Aunt Mary's family. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
