My father, Oscar Leland Knief, was born and raised in Logan County. He was born March 7, 1905, and he had several brothers: Ernest, Darrel (unsure of spelling), and one other whose name I cannot now remember. My grandfather's name was Charles Knief. The family came from Germany, but that is all that I know, other than the fact that members of the Knief family remain in Logan County to this day. My father moved to the west coast after WW II and lived in San Diego until his death in 1984.
