Louis Knecht, coal company, Brooklyn, and descendants

Hi. My great-great-grandfather was Louis S. Knecht, from Austro-Hungary. He immigrated to the United States in the late 1800s through Ellis Island. He was married to Tillie Feldman(n), also from Austro-Hungary. They had at least seven children -- Robert Arthur, Herman, Samuel, David, Moses, Benjamin Bernard, and Hannah "Annie." Louis owned a coal company in Brooklyn and lived on Park Avenue. Robert was my great-grandfather. He had two wives, I believe, Pearl Klein and Pauline LaFebre. By Pearl, he had twin daughters Helen (my grandmother) and Estelle. By Pauline, he had daughters Elaine and Ruth.

Any additional information, or if anyone is related to any of these people, would be GREATLY appreciated!
