    I found your site while searching for Jean Bernard Knepper. My Knepper family came from Luxembourg and I have been researching all Kneppers in the country from 1550 through 1900 and trying to tie them all together. It’s a very big project. I appreciate the little tidbit above as I had no info on Francois-Bernard. Any other info would be wonderful
    Many thanks, Merry Christmas
