Thank you, Tamy, for your info on Lorenzo. I had nothing on Lorenzo except a name. This Casner family is difficult, so please be aware that you will need to verify any and all of this information. Interesting puzzle to put together. I do have a photo of Lorezo's brother, Elza (my g-grandfather). He is an old man, but better than nothing. And a couple other photos.
I really dislike Genealogy.com. You cannot edit information or remove information that has mistakes found later etc. etc.
