Dr.Frederick A. Sienknecht was born in Preetz, Plon, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany and a graduate of Vienna.

His parents were Dr. Clemens August Sienknecht and Maria Dorothea Kroll Sienknecht.

He came to America in about 1848.

From the standpoint of service in the Colony(Morgan County Tennessee: German-Swiss Colony) Dr. Sienknecht was the
most outstanding . After his arrival at Wartburg about 1848 Dr . Sienknecht made his home on a small tract of land east of Wartburg . In 1855 he pur­chased the property at the southwest corner of Main and Kingston Streets and moved to that place. He thereafter remained at Wartburg where he
conducted a store and practiced his profession . In the latter, he was considered very proficient and commanded the practice of adjoining counties. He was not only profiecient in the practice of medicine but he also manufactured his own medicines to a considerable extent. He cultivated various herbs for this purpose. For a considerable period following the Civil War, and possibly, during the War, Dr. Sienknecht was the only, doctor accessible to the Colony. On the whole he may be called the colony "Doctor."

Dr. Sienkneckt was a very strong union sympathizer. He had two sons, Theodore and Christian , that were in the Confederate Army.

Per, Granddaughter Daisy Sienknecht Hayes, Oliver Springs, Tennessee as interviewed by Hobart Schofield Cooper 1925.
