Do you know if he had a brother George or William? Or maybe a cousin with either of these names? All I have is the name George Kestler appearing in Sullivan County @1905 and dieing in Sullivan or Orange County @1911. He had a brother William, I had contact with one of his granddaughters for a short time. My mother's family doesn't have any more information since my grandfather died in 1952. All I have is his SS application that lists his parent's names. Does the name Peter of John show up at all in your Kestler line? I can't figure out where either namr came from, my grandfather's middle name was John and he had a brother and a cousin both named Peter so I am assuming it's a family name. Any help is appreciated.
