Born in Bormanns house, Wunderthausen. He traveled with some relatives to the port of New Orleans on the ship Diana in 1841. It is most likely that he joined relatives in the Kansas City area but I have no other information. Daughter Elisabeth used the family name of Knoche even though the parents were not married.

Born in Hanphilippses Haus in Wunderthausen where she continued to live during many years of a relationship with Heinrich Fey. They eventually married but he lived only a few more years. The Fey name was otherwise unknown in Wunderthausen. It is found primarily in the state of Hesse around Marburg. At the time of her husband's death, they were more or less boarding at a farm outside of Wunderthausen.

Florentine came to America on the ship "Marco Polo" out of Bremen, arriving in New York on June 1, 1868 with four children. She was by then a widow of a man with no property. It is a good hypothesis that the cost of her passage and that of the children was covered by relatives at Wheatland. Two children died soon after birth and I have no record of what became of daughter Elisabeth. I do not know when Florentine and other children first came to Wheatland. As of the 1870 Census, only son George was in the area, working on the farm of Johann Franz Homrighausen; I have not located the others. The youngest son, Philipp, seems to have stayed on the East Coast so I suspect that Florence and others lived there for a while (there being various relatives there).

By 1880 she was in Wheatland to marry Carl Ebert and they were farming in Cedar County, Iowa.

Homrighausen Catherina Elisabeth [Female] b. 21 NOV 1773 Wunderthausen - d. 1 DEC 1833 Wunderthausen

There is confusion in the church records about Elisabeth and her twin, Catherine. The death record refers to Catherine, the wife of Georg Gabriel Knoche. Yet baptismal records of the children consistently refer to Georg Gabriel and Elisabeth Gertraudt as the parents.

Although born in Münchhausen (south and east of Wittgenstein), he lived and worked as a hired hand at the Dambach farm near Girkhausen. Other records floating around erroneously give 1843 as the date of their marriage. They maintained a relationship for at least 20 years before marrying.

He was born in Beitzels Haus in Wunderthausen and came to Baltimore on the ship "Palmer" arriving on July 1, 1834.

According to a petition filed in 1840, Knoche first came to the U.S. in 1834, lived in Baltimore, and was naturalized March 9, 1840. He returned to Wittgenstein in 1840 to assist his father in coming to America, but was informed by the Prussian authorities that he was obliged to military service insofar as he had left Germany originally without permission. Through a lawyer, he asked the American government if he was not protected as an American citizen? The reply from an official named Henry Wheaton was that they could not help him. "Having returned to the country of your birth, your native domicile and national character revert (so long as you remain in the Prussian dominions), and you are bound in all respects to obey the laws exactly as if you had never emigrated."

Despite this legal setback, the Knoche family including Johann Philipp did come to America. He and two brothers came to the US on the ship Everhard out of Bremen, landing in Baltimore on May 25, 1841. He lived in the Kaw Township, Jackson County, Missouri, and died there. By the standards of the time he became quite wealthy. The 1860 census included estimates of the value of each household head's land (if any) and personal estate. John's numbers were $14,300 and $6,000 respectively. This would place him in the top 20% or so in his township. A plat map from 1877 shows him in possession of almost a section (640) acres of land bordered by the Missouri River
=========
From Biographical Sketches of Jackson County

The Doctor's parents were John P. and Florendina Knoche, and their family numbered only 2 children, 1 of whom died in infancy. The father was a farmer by occupation, and on emigrating to the new world took up his residence in Baltimore, in 1834, being employed there in John Wetter's distillery for 6 years. In 1839 he returned to Germany, and on again coming to the United States was accompanied by 3 brothers. They settled in Jackson county, Missouri, near Kansas City, in 1840. It was then known as West Landing. There were not near them a half-dozen houses; there was a grocery, etc. The country was wild and sparsely settled. He intended to establish a distillery, and had the building erected and a part of the machinery in when the flood of 1844 swept all away. John P. Knoche then removed to Santa Fe, Missouri, where he purchased and entered a large tract of land, engaging there in raising cattle for the Santa Fe traders. In this way he accumulated considerable wealth, but after a time disease broke out among the cattle in this section of the country, and he lost nearly all his stock, while his house and barns were destroyed by fire. Thus misfortune seemed to fall thick and fast around him. He was a man of much purpose, however, and returned to his farm in Jackson county, near Kansas City, but retained the ownership of his farm near Santa Fe, and operated both until after the war broke out. At that time he joined the home guards. His land lay between the territory occupied by Jennison's Kansas “Redlegs” and Price's raiders, who stole all his corn, hogs and hay. His wife was also frightened to death in 1861 by some of Jennison's troops! She was a member of the Lutheran church, a faithful helpmeet to her husband and a loving mother. In 1863 Mr. Knoche was again married, his second union being with Annie E. Knoche, a sister of his first wife. They had 9 children - 4 sons and 5 daughters, of whom the following-named are yet living: John H., Louis H., Joseph and Rosa A. The father died August 29, 1887, in his 75th year, but his 2nd wife is still living, on the old homestead.
