Knittle, Fay, Weasner & Duggins Genealogy

John "Adam" Knittle Jr and Descendants Photos 


Photos by Susan Q Knittle-Hunter



(Unfortunately, most of the William Joseph Knittle Sr. family photographs were destroyed by an angry in-law. If anyone has photos of this family they would be most welcome.)
To help clarify who the people in the pictures are and how Susan Q. Knittle-Hunter (me) connects to the Knittle genealogy, I have included my line back to Joseph Knittel/Knittle.
