I hope I am in the right area, I am looking for my ancestor Christian Bernhard Kastner b 15.08.1830 in GroBrudstedt who married Karoline Fredricke Auguste Fritsch b 30.07.1839 (Hocksted?) the were married on 26.04.1863.
Christian did not come to the US with Karoline (Fredia), maybe she was a widow? Also their oldest daughter Minnie Kastner Bruhle (B 1864-1866?) was married so she stayed in Germany. Fredia and her other children traveled to the US around 1882 or 1883 where her brother Fredrich Fritsch b 12.05.1841 had settled in Plano, IL around 1865-1867.
Children that iimmigrated to US with their mother:
Albertine Hulda Kastner b. 27.10.1867
Charles Kastner b 02.02.1870
Augusta Wilhelmine Kastner b 04.06.1872
Paul Otto Kastner b 24.10.1875
Clara Kastner b 08.06.1879
I would appreciate any information about Christian or Minnie, I will be in Germany next week and will try to find some more info if I can.
