It is always exciting to find more Redners from Orange Co. My dad, Richard Redner, my husband Steve, and myself are going to Orange County this fall to do some more research. Most of what we have so far is what my dad found in the archives there a few years ago. He says there is a lot more information there that he didn't have time to look at. I will keep my eye out for your family names while I'm searching. It is possible my GGG Grandfather James Redner, b. abt.1805, was born in Ireland. My G Grandfather John Wesley Redner was married to Emma Duffy whos parents were born in Ireland. Also there is a Redner street in PA where the Irish lived in the 19 century. Just a little something I found while searching the web. It still seems as if the Redners are German. If only they were McRedners there would be know question. I'll keep in touch.
