Included will be both the ancestors and the descendants of Heinrich Friedrich Ludwig Knapwurst and Hanne Justine Charlotte Lücke who married 4 July, 1831, in Dehrenberg, Grossberkel, Germany. We will attempt to provide documented information on the Knapwurst and Knapwurst/Dehne families as well as oral histories and legends that have been passed down through the years.
