Carl Kaster (1899-1976) has German ancestors.

Peter Castor (1650-1729) and his wife Margareta Soeren (1652-1696) were born and died in Mörsdorf in Germany.

They were the ancestors of Joletta Mary Kaster.

In 1702 and 1726 Peter Castor was in Germany reported as magistrate.

Jacob F. (1870-1957) was born in De Pere (America) as "Kaster" while his father Peter Joseph (1825-1884) was born as "Castor" in Germany ans immigrated in 1852 tot Wisconsin.

By the immigration, it often happened that the American border personnel did not understand the language (of the name) and wrote something else.
