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.

Hello Virginia,
Assuming your Father Leroy J Knettle is my grand father Leroy J Knettle then you would be my aunt. My Grandfather Leroy was married to Violet Hubert Knettle before and during WWII. He had 3 sons William, Leroy Jr. and Hiram Wesley Evans Knettle (my father who changed his name to Wesley Hiram Evans Knettle) and a daughter Mildred. As I recall my grandfather remarried after the war and married again some time after that and retired to Clearwater Florida in the late 50's. His wife then I only remember as Nan and she had a son by a previous marriage. My grandfather Leroy was retired from the Army as a Col. and served in WWII in Europe. His son's all served in WWII with William in the Army (Europe), Leroy Jr. Navy (Pacific) and my dad Wesley Navy (Pacific).

My father had three children in his first marriage, myself, a sister Catherine, a brother William and another son Raymond in his second marriage. Celine who posted above is Raymond's daughter.

Please feel free to email me.
