... "it's difficult to read, a co-worker who was raised in Germany believes one entry to indicate that she was the daughter of a "kathner" (umlaut over the 'a').

Kätner (Kaetner) is someone which lives in a Kate, a small farmhouse without or with little farmland. The Kätners were often at the same time farmers on their own land and farmworkers/day-labourers or earned their money with handicrafts. The word Kätner is used in different regions, similar like Kötter or Häusler in other parts of Germany.
