I am looking for connections with some KNAACKs that were born in the 1870's - 1897:HENRY, ELNORA, JOHN JAMES, HERMAN, EDWARD, WILLIAM.(Father and mother unknown.)Some lived in Quincy, IL; some lived in northeast Missouri; some lived in Davenport, IA; one settled in Alaska.
Also, I am looking for any ties with the Knaack family from northern Illinois to the Knaack family in the Moline area.Father and Mother (Gustav and Fredrieke Knaack) had children that came to America in 1881 from the Pomerania, Germany, area (most of which seemed to plant roots in northern IL):FRED, JOSEPH, LOUISE, WILLIAM, GUSTAVE, JOHN (Johann Christian Frederick), and CARL C.Some of the kids were born in 1824, 1838, and 1853.Other dates not known.John settled in Iowa.
Is there a possibility that something might match?
