I am researching ALL descendents of GEORGE JOHN KESNER and SARAH JANE YOUNG KESNER BARTH MUNGER. I am their great great granddaughter. Their children were living in New York and Ohio. The names included are BARTH, JOHOSKE, HOHENSTEIN, MILLER, WALLACE, WALTERS, Schimpf, Priest, Barth, Keller, Fett, Schwartfager; to name a few. Living relatives have been found in NEW YORK, OHIO, CALIFORNIA and PENNSYLVANIA.

I would love to share information and photos for all those who are interested. I also welcome all corrections and additions.

Thanks... and happy hunting !!!

This work is dedicated to my grandparents, Matthew and Mary Kesner and their unconditional love.

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care;
You did not know that I exist;
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you;
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestors,
the place you filled one hundred years ago
spreads out among the ones you left;
who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew;
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.

Bonnie and I put this at each of the headstones we found at Forest Hill Cemetery.
