Kestner Family Genealogy Forum
My great ggrandmother's name was Jane Renfro and as far as i know she had 5 girls who were Sally,Dolly,Elizabeth,Mary,and Margaret. Elizabeth was my grandmother and she died in 1942.Sally was married to Delbert Cudworth and i think childless.Dolly had 3 kids that i know of and they were Tom,Church,and Mamie. She was married to Tom Allen and lived out on Brick Church Pike in Nashville. Elizabeth and Margaret married 2 brothers named Kuehner and both were divorced. Elizabeth had 3 girls who were Margaret,Barbara(my mom)and one daughter who was injured in a fall and died very young.Mary was married to a man named Reese and then for many years to a man named Ben Watts and lived on a farm in Milton Ill.Margaret died approx. 1964 and at the time lived with Dolly,Mamie, and Young Tom on Brick Church Pike.Dolly died some years later and Tom and Church and Dolly are also gone.They are buried in a (as i remember) large Allen or Kestner plot in a big cemetary in Nashville. My mom was born in 1914 and died in 1986.The next time i go to the cemetary i will make note of when Elizabeth was born.The only man i can ever remember them talking about was an Uncle Pat who only had one leg but i don't know his last name or whether he was a great uncle or what.I just moved and can't find the bible i have some of this written in but somewhere i remember some Schumachers from S/E Mo. in one family.I enjoyed hearing from you and i knew all of the above especially Margaret and Mary. If you are interested i will relay some of the stories about Sally who was everything from a healer to a card shark.By the way i go by my middle name which is Mike and i was born in 1942.
