I am looking for info on Gus Kastner and his ancestors. According to 1900 census, he was born in Germany in June of 1863 and came to the U.S. in 1871.In 1900 he was a farmer in Flynn Township in Garfield County in Oklahoma.He married Minerva or "Minnie" McCandless in Kansas, Minnie was born in in Kansas in November of 1865.

RANDOLPH EARL KASTNER, SR., b. July 30, 1904; d. February 13, 1992, Oklahoma City, OK. ZELMA KASTNER, b. 1905, Oklahoma.
