Just interesting to read about this family. My husband's sister, Arletha Yancey of Lowville, N.Y. married Russell Knechtel in 1931.I don't know much about him or his siblings, just that he came from Canada. He died about 5-6 years ago at the age of 92 and she died 3 years ago at the age of 87. Both died in Lewis County, N.Y. and are buried there. They were parents of five children (two boys and three girls).
Not a name that I see often in genealogy so thought I would just send greetings.
