Does anyone know of a Valentine Kantner?
Looking for any information on the family of Ezekiel Jones (1822-April 7, 1897, Howe Twp., Perry County) and Catherine (Machamer) Jones, 1824-Feb. 5, 1897 Howe Twp.)Their children were:
1.Ellen, married Benjamin F. Geistwite
2.John Milton, married Elizabeth Delilah Miller
3.Mitchell, married Annie E.
6.Fannie, married Charles W. Frank
Valentine Kantner, born ca 1761 in Tulpehocken Township, Berks County PA, died 1825, was a son of Johann Georg and Christina Kantner. He married Catherine Zechman, born 1787, died April 26, 1848 in Jackson Township, Lebanon County PA.
I am trying to find a connection between the Engel and Kantner families. My direct line is from John Engel (1748-1837) who married Anna Margaretha Georg (1752-1824). They had 3 known children. The first two were twin sons, Valentine and Johannes, born 5-17-1781and bap't in the Host church, Berks Co.
My Valentine's sponsor was Valentine Kantner. His twin brother, Johannes was sponsored by Johannes Kantner. There seems to be a close connection, but I can't find it. Can anyone shed light on this?
I have family from Berks that went to Perry so took a look to see if I could find anything in my records. Here is what I found but I can not see a connection either.

Are you by any chance researching Nicholas Riehm who is found in the 1790 Tulpehocken census? I am trying to connect the three Ream children who married the three Aurand siblings in Buffalo Twp., Union Co., in the early 1800's.
No, I am not related. Good luck in your search.
Have information on the families of Benjamin Ream/Riehm married to Susannah Aurand; Samuel Ream married to Salome Aurand and Henry Ream/Riehm married to Katherine (Young) Aurand, widow of John Yost Aurand. All took place in Union County, PA. Do you have additional Riehm/Aurand marriages?
