I am looking for information on this family. Peter Knobloch immigrated to the US from Hesse Darmstadt in 1857 along with his wife Barbara and children Lizzie, Jacob and Louisa.
They first appear in the 1860 Census for Meadville/Crawford/Pennsylvania.
Then again in the 1870 Census for Meadville/Crawford/Pennsylvania. By this time Barbara is dead; Rehana is shown as wife, and children Charles, Adam, Susan, Mary, and William are added. Also, two children with the last name of Mepersal(?) John and Lana. While it is indicated for the Knobloch children that their parents were foreign born, it is not so with these two.
By 1880 the family is in York/Sandusky/Ohio with Rachel as head (it is assumed that Rachel is Rehana?). Peter died in 1877 according to the Civil War Pension Index. The Mepersal children are now going as Knobloch and children John, Christian, Louis and Lora are added.
Louisa is my 2nd great grandmother. She married Jacob Wable in Ohio and they died in Delaware County, IN.
