Let me know if you can or can't open it.I have a lot of my information on the Kestner side in a Microsoft Word file. I have been corresponding with Joe Kestner in UT, I forget how he is connect.I also have corresonded with "Hots" Kestner, who lives in Nashville also.
Have you gotten any further back than Sarah Janes' father John?I have alittle information on the Renfro family also.Don't have much typed into FTM yet.I have a "new" cousin, Pat Labrot that has lots of Renfro information.
Let me know what you need or would like to know.I would enjoy stories about the aunts and uncles.
I was born in 1971 (I know a youngin!) and my dad never new his grandfather "Chick" John Henry (he also went by Henry!) because he died when MY grandfather, William Forman was only 17.My grandfather, "Bill" had a sister named Dolly also.
"Chick" died while living with Dollie on Brick Church Pike.I forget the name of the cemetery, but yes, several Kestners are buried there.The name is on the FTM file.
