In Reply to: Looking for Kestners in Virginia by James Arlin Kestner of 171

I am a Kestner from Virgnia, currently attending Yale University. My dad's side
of the family hails from southwest virginia,
he was born in meadow view, va. in 1924, and raised in abigdon and later harrisonburg, his name is Charles Culver Kestner. His father, charles wiley kestner born ca. 1896, had seven brothers (i believe), the ones who's names I can remember are rueben, floyd, and roby. I think that it is quite possible that we are related, as the areas you mentioned are the areas from which my family came. I know that one of my great-great grandmothers or aunts was born outside of the city during the battle of saltville in the civil war.
hope this helps
