My wife's maiden name is Kuhner.We've been doing "on-n-off" research for over 9 yrs now.We've came to a brick road with the following name:
Joseph Kuhner b. 11-Jan-1862 p. New Baden, Clinton, Illinois d. 7-Jul-1949 p. Highland, Madison, Illinois m. 7-Apr-1885 s. Wilhelmina Wanger
His father was: Joseph Kuhner b. 19-Mar-1822 p. Germany??? d. 15-Sep-1896 p. New Baden, Clinton, Illinois m. 1861 s. Efresina Ringwald
I noticed one of you "Joseph Kuhners" were from St.Clair, Illinois.If that is the county, that's right next to Clinton County which is where "my" Joseph's are from.Didn't know if you had any links or not.If so, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know and I'll share what I have if you'll do the same.
