Is this posting for Franklin, Jackson Co., in west-central Wisconsin as originally posted, or for the Town of Franklin in Milwaukee Co.?
The newspaper titles referenced in this thread didn't exist in 1867 or 1872.
There are no entries or references to Kneiser in my current version of "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). I've been told by researchers that the library doesn't acknowledge the German newspapers or my approx. 5000 page index donated to their collection.
If this posting is for Franklin, Jackson Co., Wisconsin, a librarian in that area could help focus on a community that published papers for that area in 1867 or 1872.
