Dan: My Wilhelms came via the port of New Orleans, and I think they were from the same place as my Knechts. Going to have to look that up again. My German isn't very good! I know it was near the Black Forest. Did your Knechts live in Cincinnatti all their lives? Were your Knechts Catholic? Mine were. At least until my Grandfather was a boy and they left the Catholic Church over a problem with a priest who was eventually moved somewhere else. This story is alluded to on the Franklin Co., Indiana website. My Johann (John) Knechts son I am descended from was Francis Xavier Knecht. I would love to exchange more information with you. My e-mail addy is email@example.com.
