I'm looking for information regarding the ancestors of Martin Russell Karchner, who married Florence Miller. I have very little information on Martin Russell Karchner. He was probably born in the late 1800's. I believe he had 5 children: Martin Karchner (b. 16 January 1923), Betty Karchner, Lucille Karchner, Ellsworth Karchner, and Doris Karchner. I believe this surname was adapted from Kerchner. My gut is telling me they come from this particular Kerchner line, although I have been unable to prove a connection.
3--Henry KERCHNER (1780) m. Christiana LEINBACH (1780) 4--George KARCHNER (1804-1880) m. Lydia HARTER (1805)
If anyone has any information that could prove this connection or point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated. I would also be more than willing to share what information I have.
