Hi Cousin, I have just acquired a little info which gives my ggfather as John S. Cartner B. 11/12/1813, D. 10/1/1879 (transcription error would explain difference in death date), Married to Sarah E. Cartner B. 11/18/1818, D. 11/15/1889.
My Grandfather was Joseph Cartner B.7/16/1855, D.1/18/1923, Married Fannie C. Byerly B.2/12/1855, D.3/12/1886.I have no date of marriage.It would appear that we are related but I am sad to report no earlier information than you give.
I am grateful for themiddle and maiden name of my ggmother as I did not have that.
As more than 4 years have passed you may have more info by now.If so I would appreciate any help you might give me as I begin my efforts to trace my roots.
