Ketner Family Genealogy Forum
We are looking for Mary, b. 1770 in PA. She marries Johannes Yarger in 1805/6 in Somerset Co., PA. After their marriage they moved to Union County, PA. and remained there until after becoming parents of several children, when they removed to Centre County, where the father followed general farming and was successful. They spent the rest of their lives in Centre County. They were respected in both Union and Centre Counties. They were members of the German Reformed Church, and John Yarger was a staunch Democrat. They had five sons and four daughters.
We have hit a brick wall with Mary. Some family lore tells that her surname was Keener, but have seen Keener and Ketner used interchangeably in these early families.
