Biographies


John Peter Knoll and His Family
by Anna Knoll

John Peter Knoll, the second child of Adam Knoll and Catherine Pfeifer, was a prominent farmer at St. Peter, Kansas. Born in Herzog, Russia, on November 12, 1862, he came to the United States with his parents in 1876 at age 13. Because he did not have the opportunity to attend school either in Russia or the United States, he was illiterate. His illiteracy did not prevent him from becoming a prosperous farmer in that he learned to acquire and manage his farms and protect his interests in the school of hard knocks.

On June 20, 1884, John Peter and Catherine Hoffman, the daughter of Johannes Hoffman and Catherine Margaret Bach, were married in St. Fidelis Church at Victoria. Five of their eight children: Michael, Peter, Anna Barbara, Mike, and Katie, were born at Victoria, and three: Andrew, Adam, and Rosie, were born at St. Peter. Their oldest son, Michael, who died at age five, is buried at Victoria.

When John Peter Knoll and his family moved to St. Peter with his parents and three brothers and their families in 1897, they settled on a farm in section 14-10-25, which is 1/2 mile east of St. Peter. Their house was on a hill on the south side of the road.

After having lived in a sod house six years - from 1897 to 1903, they built a frame house. John Peter and his wife lived in the frame house from 1903 until they died many years later. John Peter died in St. John's Hospital at Salina on September 11, 1920, and his wife, Catherine, died at a Hays hospital October 8, 1924. Both are buried in the cemetery at St. Peter where their son, Andrew, who died in his childhood, is buried.

Besides the place where the family lived, John Peter also became the owner of other land east of St. Peter near his homestead. He bought land in an adjoining section - in section 13-10-25 - and got the 80 acres of land near his home his mother Catherine Pfeifer Knoll owned at the time of her death in 1914. Sometime after she became a widow, his mother moved in with John Peter and his family, and stayed with them until she passed away.

After John Peter and Catherine's three sons, Peter, Mike, and Adam, got married, each of them got some of the land John Peter and his wife owned. Peter, the oldest son, got the farm formerly owned by Catherine (Pfeifer) Knoll. When Peter sold this land in 1929 when he and his family moved to Colorado, Alex Knoll, the writer's brother, bought it. Mike got a quarter in section 13-10-25 after his marriage which his brother, Adam, bought from him in 1939. After the death of John Peter's widow, Catherine, Adam became the owner of the home place - 14-10-25 - and 80 acres in 13-10-25. Adam and his family lived on the home place from the time of his marriage to Agrippina Weigel in December 1923 until he and his family moved to Waukegan, Illinois in 1937. However, Adam continued to own this property from the time of his mother's death until his death in 1966, and he also kept the land he bought from Mike in 1939. Two years after Adam's death in 1966, Adam's wife, Agrippina, gave this land to their two sons, Gilbert and Elmer.

John Peter Knoll
(author unknown)

John Peter Knoll, the second child of Adam Knoll and Katherine Pfeifer, was born in Herzog, Russia on November 12, 1862. He was a prominent farmer at St. Peter, Kansas when he died at St. John's Hospital at Salina, Kansas, on September 11, 1920, at the age of 61 and 10 months.

When he came to the United States with his parents and his brothers in 1876, he helped his father on the homestead north of Victoria, Kansas. Although he was very young (not quite 14), his father needed him to help him with the farming. At that time his oldest brother Michael was working for a rancher at Victoria, Kansas, and his father often worked on the Railroad to support his family and to raise money to help pay the train fare of relatives who wanted to come to the United States from Russia.

On June 20, 1884, he married Catherine Hoffman (she was nearly 17) in St. Fidelis Church at Victoria. Five of their eight children were born at Victoria, Kansas. The oldest son, Michael, who died at age five, is buried at St. Peter. Two other children were born at St. Peter.

After moving to St. Peter when his parents and brothers moved to St. Peter in the summer of 1897, John Peter and his family made their home about one mile east of St. Peter. They lived on a hill on the south side of the road. Their first home was built of sod, and after they became more prosperous, they built a frame house in the village of St. Peter. All of John Peter and Catherine's children, except Rose (the youngest), were married at St. Peter. Rose was married at St. Catherine in Denver, Colorado.

The descendants of John Peter Knoll and Catherine Hoffman live in Kansas, Colorado, Illinois, and Arizona.


Willibald Braun

posted by bjphlieger29 (Ancestry), Plainville, Kansas

Most stories about Willibald Braun told by relatives have been very unpleasant accounts.  Unfortunately, most people can not speak of him as a very nice man and he was disliked by many throughout the community.  I am sure that good memories did once exist, but there is no one left to tell us about them.  Therefore, I am simply telling what I have been told because it is all we know.

When Willibald was married to Anna Barbara (Knoll) his second wife, he was often unemployed and known for having a bad habit of drinking.  Because he was often without a job, he was unable to provide for his wife and children.  The family received welfare checks once a month to help them get by, but Willibald would take the money and drink it away.  Anna began to have the welfare checks sent to Willibald's nephew, Adam Braun and his wife Clementina, so that the money could be used to support the family.  Another story told is that when his sons became of adult age before entering the service, he took money from them which they had earned for a days work.

He had about 6 or so friends, some of which might have been relatives, that he would get together with during the summer months.  They would congregate in someone's back yard or garage and play cards, smoke cigars, and drink beer or whiskey.  The smoke was so thick from their cigar smoking that one could hardly tell who was who.  They did their spitting in coffee cans and it drew in the flies really bad.  Willibald got pretty high and when he arrived home, he took it out on his wife Anna.  He was known for having a violent temper, and on one occasion, he broke dishes by throwing them out of the cupboard.  This behavior could have been brought on by Anna not having his dinner ready for him.  He was also known to use physical discipline on the boys, even after they outgrew childhood.
