Johnson Co., KY & Washington Co., VA, MD

I am looking to correspond with any descendants of Phillip Kestner/Kistner and wife Elizabeth Merchant. I descend from Phillip's son William who lived at Washington Co., VA and was married to Barbara Gobble. From Wm. & Barbara's son, Christopher Columbus Kestner.

Wm. & Barbara (Gobble) Kestner & Christopher Columbus Kestner moved to Johnson Co., KY. C.C.'s first wife was named Harriett Westcole or or Harriett Cole. His 2nd wife was Louisa Short.

Barbara and or Wm. may have moved back to Washington Co., VA but I'm not sure about that.

There are some Kestner's in Johnson Co., KY that I haven't been able to identify yet. One is Merchant Kestner/Kistner. I don't know if he is a descendant of Wm. & Barbara or if there is some other kind of familial relationship.

Thanks for any help!
