My wife's mother Ida Arlene Kerstettter is the is the 5th great granddaughter of Johann Martin (I think) as follows:

Johann-Martine Kearstuter (9/5/1697-5/1759
Sebastian Kerstetter (1730-3/20/1787)
Sabastian Kerstetter Jr. (9/24/1763-1830)
Adam Kerstetter (1791-1853)
John Henry Kerstetter (8/21/1819-3/7/1897)
Peter Dressler Kerstetter (1855-?)
Cloyd Nelson Kerstetter (9/21/1887-7/21/1930)
Ida Arlene Kerstetter (7/7/1913-12/1/1983)

The question mark is Peter Dressler Kerstetter. I can find no firm proof that he is the son of John Henry, only family roomer.

It also appears that a number of the Kerstetters in my wife's family were of the Jewish faith. Does this tie to anything in your records?

I would be very interested in any info you can share on the Kerstetter family. I have several hundred Kerstetters in my family file assuming the Peter connection is proven.

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

Dan Ward
