My mother's maiden name was Kuhnel. Her father's parents came from Germany in about 1850. She was an only child, and grew up at Sarvis Point, southwest of Seymour Mo. Her father, Louis Carl Kuhnel was born near Rogersville, Mo. His parents were Louis John Kuhnel and Louisa Catherine Dreher. They had eight children including Louis Carl. I'm looking for information on the Kuhnel family in Germany. They supposedly came from a town named Beckenfeld(or Berkenfeld).
