Hello and welcome fellow Knittle researchers!
My name is Susan Quentine Knittle-Hunter. I have been researching my Knittle lineage for nearly 50 years. I have found quite a bit of information on the Knittle surname and have met many "cousins" who are also researching the name. Most of us have spent many tedious hours researching through census records, marriage and tax records, military records, wills and land records, etc. Researching on the internet over the years opened up many new doors and simplified much of the work for us. We have found that most of us descend from Joseph Knittel (Knittle) who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvanian 1753, aboard the ship, The Patience. He arrived from Oberesslingen, Germany. Most of his descendants spread out north and east in Pennsylvania.
This Knittle Genealogy Website is no longer a work in progress. I will not be adding any new information, data, photos, documents or researchers. I recently discovered that the Knittle family is my 'adopted' family. I will be working on the family names that I now know are my blood/DNA lines.
