Hello;
I would very much appreciate it if you could do a lookup for me.
My wife's GGG-Grandfather is reputed to have served in the war with Mexico.
We believe his birth name was Johanna Knecht
He was born in Germany (Bavaria) June 7, 1828
Immigrated to the US in 1846 or 1847
Port of entry possibly New York
Changed his name to John Wesley Kent(Kant)
Lived in Thompson, Jo Daviess Co.,Illinois by 1850
Moved to Byrds Creek, Richland, Wisconsin ~1883
Died in Wisconsin Nov. 27, 1897
Thank you
Russ
