I came across your website researching my family's history for a book I am writing. I think the easiest way to connect us is through my maternal great-grandfather Marcus Binner (1850-1928) who was married to Caroline Ottney/Otteni) (854-1903). Caroline's sister also married a Binner. Caroline's daughter Caroline Louise Binner was my maternal grandmother (1892-1943). She was the black sheep of their family. She met and married a young Italian printer named Vincenzo Casabianca. Their first child, a girl named Josephine was my mother. Marcus Binner led a fantastical life; I heard a story about how he was hit by lightning and survived while he was shoeing a horse. I never believed it until I found two newspaper articles that verified it. I also found old photographs of him in his Shenandoah beard. I traced the Ottney line to 1687-1711. Mathias Otteni. The Italian Otteni origin explains why my DNA has a strong Italian link and less Germanic than I had anticipated. Thanks.

I am fascinated by the background research you have done, especially the possibility/likelihood that the Otteni surname may be Italian.

I have done extensive research on the Kettering family, I have a ton of information and would love to see what you have for the Gohn family. I noticed you have Warren Edward Kettering as my dad and actually he was my uncle, my dad's brother. My dad is Michael Burland Kettering born 1950 and is still living. Unfortunately Warren Edward Kettering passed away 2 months before I was born in 1970 when he was 17. Would love to share info back and forth with you
