The information you sent was great and helpful. I was glad you went to the cemetary. Sure wish I had been there. I am going up for sure next year. My dad had a hard time getting up that hill, but Lita helped him. What a nice person she is.

We have concluded that these people are brothers, Daniel b. 1796, John b. 1083, my James b. 1801 and Peter born between 1790 and 1800. I think that makes your husband and I related. That must make you an inlaw. Okay, well the big news is that we have found their mother. Her name is Catherine Redner. My dad went throught a coffin book in Orange County. (He does strange things like that) He found that John Redner purchased a coffin for his mother Catherine. It is very exciting. We found her with John and his family in the 1855 census. She was born in 1764. The coffin was orded in 1862. We assume she had died then. He also found where John had ordered the coffin for your Daniel. It was in 1876. It cost 5 dollars. They put him on ice and in a black robe, which was the custome. Hope you wanted to know that.

How far do you live from the cemetary. I guess when you go back you can look for Catherine. We are looking at a few possibilities for her husband. William is one name we are researching. Have you run across an Abraham. Also, do you have any clue where in NY city the family came from. There are too many census records to look at without a clue. I have started though and will go through them all if I have to. I found that the Redners did not show up in Orange County until the 1820 census.

Here is how we are related

James Redner Daniel
John Miller Redner Daniel II
John W. Redner Daniel III
Richard J Redner Wallace
Richard J Redner Wallace II
Susan Redner Thomas Joseph and Carolyn Redner

5th cousins!
