In Reply to: Descendants of Francis Knecht by ALOYS J KNECHT (BUTCH) of 345

Yes, Butch! Happy to say that I can help you out. There were 11 children born to Francis Xavier Knecht and Margaret Hebert, who were married 29 Jan 1842 in Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., Ohio. Catherina was born in 1854, Mathias in 1856, Marianna was b. 28 Dec 1858, Anna was b. in 1860; then my Great Grandfather, Melchoir Ludovicus "Lewis" was b. 25 Aug 1861; then came your GGrandfather, Alois Leo, b. 28 Feb 1864, Matthew was b. 1866, William was b. 1868, Carl was b. 1872, Philonemia (I imagine this was Philomena)was b. in 1874, and Joseph Frank was b. in 1877. Francis Xavier Knecht was first married to Margaret Hebert's sister, Gertrude, 23 Nov 1847, In Franklin Co., IN. They had 3 children together before she died. Maria, b. 1849, Kunigunda Josephina, b. 1850, and Margaretha, b. 1854. (This is what I have been told, but I doubt it is right, since Catherina is said to have been born in 1854 as well.) Most of my Knecht information I got from Bernie Stenger, there in St. Peter, IN. Found her on the Internet, but met her in person this past spring, when I visited St. Peter and St. Leon and the Catholic Churches in both places. Didn't I see your name on one of the Church bulletins? Please write me at and I will share anything else with you that I know about the Knechts. You are, I believe, the closest cousin I have met in my Knecht line. "Lewis" Knecht, my GGrandfather, had a son, Edward, who was my Grandfather. My Father was Don. I'd love to get more of your information. I will send on to you what Bernie has sent me, if you like. Just let me know.
