Looking for any information on the family line starting from my grandfather:
Orvel Kness (b. 1903?d. 1960)m. Alfreda Handorff
William Henry Kness (b. 1884 - 1974) m. Mary Ellen Plock
Henry J. Kness (b ?1854d. ?)m.Mary Ellen Osborn
I believe Henry J. came from Darmstadt, Germany (when?). Mary Ellen & Henry had their first child Delia Ann in Carrol County Illinoisand eventually Henry, William and Orvel all lived in west-central Minnesota (Johnson,MN-with no longer exists.?andinStevens County, MNandMorris, MN).
I do not have much information on the Kness family and would appreaciate hearing anything available.
