Elaine, My grandmother's name was Emma Amelia Kastelhun. She was born in Jefferson Co., Ky.,where I live, in 1868. She died here in 1947, when I was a small child and I have no memories of her at all. Since I started my research with no knowledge whatsoever, I just tried to find any Kastelhun that I could. There are not very many of them and most seem to be from this area. So, all of what I have is about the Martin Kastelhun, Sr. line. I believe my Emma has to be related, but can't find out how. Her father's name according to her Death Cert. is William Kastelhun and her Mother, Charlotte Nichols.
I have a copy of Anna Dienes Kastelhun's Funeral Record. A friend of mine works at Ratterman's Funeral Home and she made a copy of it for me out of a Record Book. You can't read all the info because she had a hard time getting the book into the copying machine. So, she wrote down the parts that didn't get copied. Has her father as George Dienes and her mother as Anna Theobald. She was born 1896 and died in 1985. She and her husband, George R. Kastelhun,Sr. are buried in St.Michaels Cemetery. I took a picture of their gravestone as well as the one of their children. I have been able to find 5 children: Anna L.(B.1924-D.1924), George R. Jr.(B.1927-D.1991), Evelyn (B.1925 /living) Joseph Leroy(B.c1928/living), and Donald L. (B.1932-D.1978).
Anna's husband, George R. Kastelhun, was a son of Martin Kastelhun, Jr, and his grandfather was Martin,Sr.
I have a little more info on this line of Kastelhuns, so if you would like copies of what I have, I'll be glad to send them to you.
