About Philip Heinrich Friedrich Knobel

Source: The Knobel Family and Relationships, J. B. Knobel, MJB 281.1(6), SA Library In 1814 Hanschen wrote:- “This terrible war caused the death of our dear eldest brother (Dr. Philip). As he was Dr. in Gelnhausen, he attended a lazarett of Frenchmen, who had brought an infectious and dangerous, ‘nerven’ fever from Russia with them, he got it and recovered, although all the other doctors in Gelnhansen died of it. He attended them again, and got it a second time and died of it, leaving a widow and 3 children, who have means enough to live upon them moderately. Franz Helfrich Knobel, “Rath und Director” of the local “Blaufabrik”, and his wife, Maria Barbara, born Claus, had these children: (1) Amalie Elizabeth, born 4 November 1777; (2) Katherina Johanna Henrietta, born 2 July 1779; (3) Johann Balthazar Christian, born 15 February 1781. He gets the first two names from one Godfather , and the third from the other, whose names are mentioned. We looked for some time for the births of other children, but could not find any, but we found that (4) Philip, an elder son, Doctor of Medicine, in Gelnhausen near Schwarzenfels, and between Hanau and Schlüchtern, married Miss Rentzels, April 1804, but nothing more of him, and that (5) George, who had been studying Law at Warburg, came on a visit to his parents, and that he left them at 9 p.m. on his return journey, and was found dead next day near the Fabrik, killed by a bullet, apparently suicidal, though he had not been melancholy before, and no cause could be ascribed except that he wished to leave law and become farmer, and his father wished him to continue at law (so says the Church Book). His age was 26.
