Been away from the geneoligy seen for quite some time. Have been taking care of the "G" Ranch(Kasten) and haven't been doing much of anything else. I have learned some other info. Otto Kasten was born 1876 somewhere in Ensel Rugen Germany(prussen). His Father was Charles Kasten and Mother Fredericka Frazier. His mother was born 1833 and it is possible that Charles around the same time. All we have is Abt. 1830 for Charles(Carl or Karl maybe) Charles brought his Family, Wife, a son and a Daughter and his other son Otto Kasten Sr. and other Daughter Franziska to america in 1877 and settled the Kasten ranch in Texas that he purchased on an earlier visit. All but Otto and Franziska are buried in the Kasten Cemetary loacated on the Ranch. Franziska married Edward Soell and they along with Otto Sr. His wife Clara Kunz are buried in the Boerne Cemetary, Texas. The trail has ended with Charles. We believe that their origin is Ensel Rugen though. If you run across any information that might help let me know.
