I'm helping a friend with her Kostenbader research so she can apply to the DAR. We are looking for documentation from John Henry Kostenbadger (md. Maria Cristina Meyer (Meier)) to Mary Ann Kostenbauder who married Samuel Davidson in 1855 in Northampton. I beleive the family line goes as so:
Johann Heinrich Kostenbader 1756-1842 & Maria Meyer
John Henry Kostenbauder & Catherine Saber (Sorber/Server?)
Jacob Kostenbader & Elizabeth Houck (Haak)
Mary Ann Kostenbauder & Samuel Davidson jr.

Other family names include Titus & Knecht. If you can share information within the next year or so, it would be greatly apreciated.

Spellings of the name in Northampton Co., Pennsylvania:
1789 land survey, Plainfield: Henry Kostenbader
1790census Plainfield: Henry Custonbarrer
1810 census Plainfield: Henry and John Kostenbader
1820 census Bushkill: John, Joseph, Daniel and Jonas Kestainbader
1830census Bushkill: John & Jacob Kostenbauder
1840 census Bushkill: J sr., J. jr., Jos., and Danl Kostebader
