Email from Loran Bures, July 16, 2002

Sandy:

Let me introduce myself; I'm Loran Bures, a Great, Great, Great, Great Grandson of Michael Kershner (the father of Mathias Kershner) through his son Ferdinand. I got back home a week ago last Sunday after spending the week at my Great Aunt's home going through only a small portion my Great Uncle Vernon Alton Kershner's more than 30 years of family history research.

I thought you might like some additional info:

Mathias Kershner was born on 25 Aug 1825 in Kieselbronn, Germany and died on 6 Nov 1896 at his ranch 16 miles north of Sharon Springs, Kansas of congestion of the lungs. He is buried in the Sharon Springs Cemetery.

Irene Arrasmith died 7 Dec 1920 in Seattle, Washington. She is buried in the Sharon Springs Cemetery.

Mathias and Irene were married 5 May 1853 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

I have photos of Mathias and his parents, Michael Kershner and Maria Magdelina Korn that I could e-mail to you if you are interested.

I do have to raise a question about Elizabeth Corbin Peckenpaugh's place of birth. It is my understanding that the first settlers of Linn County, Iowa did not arrive until the 1830's. Breckinridge County, Kentucky makes more sense.

"I also know that Joseph Wood Smith was born in Canada and his fathers name was Solomon. His mother was born in NY. He told his children that he came to the U.S. at the age of 6 years old which would have been sometime in the late 1840's."
