I track over 50 seperate Casner lines in my endevors to sort through all of them and seperate my particular line out of all the others. I am tracking this James Casner in my data base #033 (for future reference).
Most of my information has been obtained from census records, online cemetary records, information from individuals.It is just that information as I have not documented those lines that are not connected to my line.So here goes.
I show: (1) Ella/Elora was married to Marion B. Foster. (2) Lora/Laura was married to Dwight Johnson (3) Bertha was married to Jay Brown (4)Mertie was married to Robert Carrick. (5)I have not net found anything on Minnie (or is it Martha); but Delbert Beckman is the only one left for her to be married to.
Bert Carrick furnished the information of the obit to me, so I cannot answer why James was not mentioned in the obit.Unfortunately I have misplaced Bert's email.Perhaps you can locate him.
Matt Casner is actually Stephen Matthew Casner.
According to the information I have, James Hyman Casner was born 7-16-1851 in OH.His father was Leonard Levi Casner (born 1805 PA died 1867 Huron Co., OH).
