I am seeking information on the descendents of Ottw W. Jahn and my grand aunt Emma Kern. Otto and Emma lived in Fort Wayne, Indiana, I believe. They had four children that I know of: Alta Pauline, Austin, Gerald and Lorna Margaret. Emma was born and raised in DeKalb County, IN. Her parents were George and Alta (Stark) Kern.

Lorna Jahn was my mother. I'm also looking for my relatives. She died in 1978. I don't have much history to go on. Anything would be helpful

I can give you a fair amount of information about the Kern side of your family. I have several pictures of your mother and a lot of pictures of your grandmother (my grand aunt Emma). Contact me directly at

I am the oldest son of Keith Jahn, whom was the youngest son of Otto, and Emma.
We all grew up in Ft Wayne. I did not know my grandfather Otto as he died just after my birth, however I was quite clost to my grandmother Emma.

Hello Gary
Wanted to check in and see how you are doing. All is well in Indiana, and resently purchased a winter town home in Phoenix.
My mother (84) suffers from Alzheimer's and was resently placed in a nursing facility.

Hi Steve..I'm fairly new to the Ancestry thing. I am Emma Jahn's niece. Her younger brother, Arthur, was my dad. I remember Emma very well and have some memory of Lorna but she was much older than me. I am attaching a picture of Emma and her children taken at a Kern family reunion.

Hope to hear from anyone re: this post.
