Born at #59 Lüdersfeld, Germany in the Schaumburg district near Lindhorst. Parents were Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Kastening (b. 1 Jul 1811 in Pohle, Schaumburg, Niedersachsen, Germany; died after 1895, perhaps in Minnesota) and Sophie Dorothee Blume (b. 24 Aug 1815 in Haste, Schaumburg District, Germany; died in Germany).

Married Conrad Jordening about 1874. They had six children:
Engel Marie Sophia (b. 20 Feb 1875 in Crete, Illinois; d. 10 Jan. 1938 in Plymouth, Neb.) who married Fred Bockholdt
Heinrich Jr (b. 21 Nov 1876 in Crete, Illinois; d. 17 Aug 1958 in Fairbury, Neb) who married Maria Emma Knoche
William (b. Jan 1879 in Illinois; d. 18 Mar 1943)
Emma Maria Sophia (b. 7 Sep 1881; d. 1933) who married William Kramer
Lena (b. 6 Jan 1882 in Neb; d. 11 Mar 1962) and
Conrad Heinrich Ferdinand Otto (b. 15 Jul 1887 Jefferson County, Neb; d. 9 Sep 1966 Fairburg, Neb.) who married Anna Alvina Lisette Drees.

It appears that her maiden name, Kastening, became "Kastning" in America.
