Re: Illinois Knebels
The date and place for Carrie Knebel sounds right to me because My grandfather Andreas Knebel Immigrated to Chicago FromJakabina? around the turn of the century.He had a daughter, Caroline [Carrie]who was his eldest child.She was born on July 30,1892. The name Ferdinand is also familiar to my fanily as my grandfather had to leave his son Ferdinand in Europe when he immigrated to the USA.This family stayed in Chicago for approx. eight years and then moved on to Alberta, Canada,Where they raised fourteen children including my mother Erna,who is still living at the age of 88.There are now three surviving sisters.Please reply.
