I am wondering how the Knebelkamp name 'moved' into the US. Any further info would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Arno Knebelkamp (Germany)

Seeking to find help with: Anna Marie Fleck, m. Frank Gruber, probably born around 1870-80; Joseph P. Deuser, m. Barbara K., they prob. were contemporaries of Anna and Frank as they were godparents to at least one of their children; and any info. about the Knebelkamps as Wathen Knebelkamp was Frank Grubers cousin.
