In Reply to: James Kanatzer, Madison, Kentucky by Jim Knatcher of 175

Hello, the Jim Knatcher you are speaking about is My grandmothers grandfather. her name is Angie Inez Keese-walston her mother was a Knatcher. I have been unable to find any information on Jim or his parents, he seems to be a myserty wrapped in side and ingma wrapped inside a puzzel. My Grandmothers family is from Menard Texas and the surrounding areas. The information I have been to collect is that The name Knatcher is probably a misspelling or a shoot off of another name, I was given several names by various people who have rtelitaves named jum from KY they said to try Knachtbull, this one seemed the most obvious it is a Scottish name and the scotish and French have had a long Past, many Scots moved to France before the 1745 rebellion, so it is possible that the name Knatchbull became Knatcher in france but this is only a thought no har4d porff as of yet. Aslo I was told to try Knetch, Kanatz. Al of my leads in to the name Knatcher have lead me to either a Scandinavia or Norman (ie French) connection. I hope to hear from you soon this is one of the last remain branches in my family tree that is missing.
