Christa,
My husband was surfing the net and came across your e-mail message.
My husband's grandfather, Ernest Knecht, who married Clara Jaeger was the brother of your grandfather, Henry.
In other words, Henry was my husband's great uncle.
My husband's grandmother stated to my husband that Henry died in 1944 in San Francisco Harbor. He was on a ship that caught fire; he jumped over-board and died from burns.
The water was full of burning oil.
My husband was born in 1949, so he never met Henry. His grandmother told him that Henry was a good person and she really liked him.
I am writing this for my husband because he does not have an e-mail address. (He's just learning the internet.)
It looks like you and he are third cousins.
Hope to hear from you,
Ron and Eileen Knecht
