I am so glad to hear from some one doing the same family. It has been so frustrating. This is as far back as I have been able to go for now. I have info on other Knieriem's but haven't made any connections yet. Hope to hear from you again.
P.S. Christopher, John H., Jacob D., Ernst J, & Elizah A. are buried in German Ridge Cemetery in Perry County.
