Bio and Links
I am a descendant of the Knussli family that originated in Switzerland in the 1600s and earlier. My 7th great grandfather came to the United States from Alsace, Germany in 1730. His son, Adam, moved westward to the Four Mile Run area of Ligonier Township of Westmoreland County, PA. His son, Jacob, was captured by Wyandot indians in the summer of 1775 and taken through Pennsylvania and into the Sandusky area of Ohio. He was taken into their tribe and eventually married and had children with his indian wife. Two of my 3rd great uncles were hanged in the Somerset County Courthouse, in Somerset County, PA, for the murder of Herman Umberger in 1891. Their mother, Elizabeth James Nicely, my 4th great grandmother, is a possible cousin of the outlaw Jesse James. I have relatives that have served in every major war the US had been involved in. My 6th great grandfather was a Frontier Ranger during the Revolutionary War. My 3rd great cousin was killed during the Civil War. My great grandfather was a Sergeant in the Army during World War I. My grandfather was a Staff Sergeant in the Army during World War II, stationed in the Phillipines. My father was a Specialist in the Army during the Vietnam War. I am proud of the history of my family and I enjoy learning as much as I can about my ancestors.
