History of the County of Perth, 1825-1902
William Johnston, 1903
Peter Kastner, eldest son of George Kastner we have mentioned, was also during his life-time a prominent man. The village of Kastnerville was founded by and named after this family. Like all settlers of 1833 he was early inured to the hardships of bush life, but finally overcame them all, raising himself by his own unaided efforts to positions of trust and honour amongst his fellows. He was also a justice of the peace, and filled every position in the militia from that of private to the rank of major. He carried on several branches of business, as merchant, distiller, and brewer, and was a prominent farmer and stock-raiser.
