DALLAS, N.C .––The annual Costner family reunion will be held this Saturday, Aug. 10, at 8:30 a.m.

According to Costner family representatives, the all-day event will be held at Philadelphia Lutheran Church, located at 1910 Philadelphia Church Road in Dallas. This pastoral section of Gaston County countryside is actually situated between Dallas and Lincolnton.

Cousins from across America are expected to attend. All Costner and Kastner descendants and relatives are invited to join their relatives. Bring your family photographs, stories and news clippings, along with a covered dish or two.

It was more than 270 years ago that Georg Adam Kastner and his family left Germany, sailing aboard the Patience. The Kastners landed in Pennsylvania and eventually came south to North Carolina. The old Rhinelander was the first person buried in the Kastner Family Cemetery. Both it and the church of the same name were destroyed by the Great Flood of 1916, in which major portions of Gaston County were submerged, and several people drowned. Kastner family members then moved their membership to Philadelphia Lutheran.

Noted genealogist and author Robert Carpenter will speak at 10 a.m. Carpenter’s work includes Carpenters Aplenty; a history of Gaston County in the War Between the States; histories of several churches; and more.

And the famous Kastner family Bible will be on display at the nearby Gaston County Museum of Art and History at 131 W. Main St. in downtown Dallas. The German-language Bible dates to the 1500’s. It was brought from Germany by the Kastner family.

Those attending won’t want to miss this or the trip to the remnants of the Kastner Family Cemetery. Be sure to wear some sturdy walking shoes.
