Nice to hear from you. My information came from Raymond Ralph Kesner, Jr., born 1950. He was a Captian in US Army stationed at Ft Sill, Oklahoma from mid 1980's until sometime in 1990's. We looked for a connection between our families, but we did not have information far enough back to make the connection. We were probably related before 1800 in Virginia. My g grandmother was a Kesner from Arkansas. Her family had came to Tenn about 1800 from Virginia. Raymond Kesner is a 1st cousin to your father.
If you don't mind, I will add your information to my data. It would be nice to have the dates on the names you supplied.
Maybe I will find information farther back that will let me know the connection between these Kesner families.
