I am related to the Schachtler family, who also settled in Montana township, after coming over from Switzerland. The Schachtlers and Kindschis are related, through common ancestors back in Switzerland. I have also come across the dilemma of the same names for different people.
I have found that I am related to the Christian Kindschi who was born in March of 1838 and apparently came to Wisconsin with his father, who was also named Christian Kindschi. I believe that the father died in 1883, according to his probate records.
Do these names sound like yours?
I would be interested in hearing back,
