I may have the John Kaestner you are looking for of Burlington, IA. I Will begin at the bebinning with what I Know: Henry Kaestner Sr. born Ger. abt abt. 1825. Belived to have lived in Wettenburg, Prussia. This spelling of Wettenburg came from church records. Have been unable to find a location with that exact spelling. Came to USA abt. 1869. Lived in Burlington,IA with his wife Dorothea Otto, born 3/11/1826 in Ger. whom he apparantly married in Ger. (Fm: (1. Fm micro film archives at RLDS Temple; B160. Independence. MO.)
