My GGGGGrandfather George Platz,married atleast three times,one of those wives was Catherine Knopp/Knupp, ( dob btw 1780-1795)the daughter of Barbara Holstein (Van?) Roosevelt and James J Knopp/Knupp (?) Not to long ago I heard that Catherines first name may have been MARIA,and that it was believed she married George in 1813,in Stoystown PA. Now all of this is great info,except George had another wife.her name was MARIAH KATHERINE WEISER,born March 30,1787. They married on April 24 1813,in Somerset Co PA.(both of these dates come from Church records) Herein lies the delemia,Could these two women actually be the same person? There seems to be alot of close matches. So I'm asking any of you that have the Knopp/Knupp line that may know anything on Barbara,James's wife and Catherines Mother that may be able to shed some light on this(even if it's to say "we know Barbara and James WERE Catherines parents) PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks,Lori
