Thanks, Carolyn: I've run across Nevin's information too. I've seen assumptions, seen no solid proof.
In twenty 22 years of searching I have never seen a solid documentation for link between John & Emanuel Custer, nor have I found a place of burial for Emanuel. Have not found a church record either. I'm missing a link. And I really would like to lay this to rest with solid documentation. This is my line.
I am looking for a documented record linking John, 1782, to Emanuel, Sr. I have no proof this Emanuel is 1754.
