My father was Leroy James Knettle. My mother was Catherine Cowdrick Knettle. He had 4 sons from a previous marriage and was about 18 yrs older than my mother. My mother had two children, Barbara and Lance when they married and Leroy adopted them. I was the only child they had together. His 4 sons from his previous marriage were in the Phila. area. AS a child we lived in Camden and moved to York, Pa. in approx. 1945-1946. For a few years before her death Leroys mother, Mabel, lived with us. My parents divorced when I was a teenager, approx. 1959. He then remarried and moved to Clearwater, Fl. I had no contact with him after their divorce.
