In Reply to: Looking For William Joseph Kanatzar's Family. by David Weiser of 175

I have collected the following from online sources. You may want to view Michael Sheppard's database at

This line runs from Johann Balthasar Knortzer (son of Killian)and Maria Dorothy Meyer. (Also my line) They arrived in America on the ship, The Charming Nancy, in 1738.
"In the spring of 1738 Johann Balthasar, at age thirty-seven, and Maria Dorothea Knörtzer, age thirty-five, emigrated with four of their children to America. On 17 April 1738 an inventory of the property of Balthasar Knörtzer, including real estate, money, bedding, clothing, linens, tin articles, copper and bronze items, cabinets, barrels and kegs, farm equipment, wine, all kinds of kitchen equipment, cattle and other animals, and odds and ends, and debts, was made in Treschklingen in preparation for selling everything he could not take with him on his passage to America."

From what I can tell, your line is
George Christopher married Eva Schmidt (Smith). I have her as the third wife of Christopher. His first wife was my line: Anna Marcretha Upp. I am showing a divorce for 2nd wife, and I believe this is also listed on the Sheppard site.

Knortzer and Smith had a son Christopher who married Sarah Venable. Their son,William, married Diannah Perkins.

Some notes I have collected on this line are:
