We had Kneedlers/Knedlers...and yes, Davis Co. Iowa is where some lived. BUT WE have no Names.... Can only track Lewis S. Kneedler, he born 1834 is only name and he may have had a sister Elizabeth Kneedler. He fell out of sky! He made bricks, rebuild engines, some say he was a teacher when young.He owned a flour mill, winning it in a card game. He moved family to Cedar Co Mo. about 1897-8. Wife was found at bottom of well in Nov 1904.
I'd love to connect with others working Kneedler lines. Carolyn
