Family History Notes: My Fathers Side

My Father’s Mother -Cecelia Jacquinot Halley



My grandmother is 93 years old and was a great help to me. She lives in New Jersey so most of our conversations were by phone. We spent many hours talking about family history; I enjoyed her stories of how she grew up on a Kansas farm. One night asking her questions about her family. She was telling me about the church she was baptized and married in. I went online to research the church and found an article Legend of Greenbush… Continue

Family History Notes: My Mother's Side

Both of my mother’s parents are deceased so I relied on her for information. We got as far as her mother’s parents and their children then we were stuck. One of my grandmother’s sisters was still alive so I wrote to her asking if she would help me with the family tree, hoping she would remember me, I have not seen her for years. She did and she was very helpful. She wrote down everything she knew; her parent’s names and birth dates, even her mother’s maiden name! Her brothers and sisters birth… Continue

All the KROHNs in my family are from Prussia. They go back to Meyer Nathan KROHN son of Nathan Joseph KROHN (CROHN) who took on that surname in 1812 in Flatow, Wst Prussia.
You can find them from the indexes starting on this page:

Hi Kathleen,

If there is a relation to my Knaus family, it would probably be some connection back in Germany, and I haven't seen any research on that yet. My Knaus ancestor (and his 3 brothers) came to America in the 1850-60s, from a small town named Harthausen auf der Scher, south of Stuttgart. I'm planning to go there at some point, but have been working on brick walls I've run into on some of my other German lines first. John Knouse seems to be the Knaus expert here in America - see his website "Knauss Family Genealogy" at http://www.jaknouse.athens.oh.us/genealogy/knauss.shtml; he had my Knaus family listed (Descendants of Clemens Knaus of Weld County Colorado), and he might very well know how yours fits in. I recently traded emails with John about DNA testing; if you still have male relations with last name Knaus, it would be possible to definitively prove linkage with any other Knaus family...
