Bernhardt Gantner (b. 1833) came from Alsace, Austria or Germany (Tyrol ?). He settled in Cottonwood, MN. His wife was Catherine Scheibel, who was one of the 9 children of Theobald (Thibault) and Mary Scheibel). Bernhardt and Catherine had 13 children in MN. They later moved to San Francisco, CA.
Their children were Henry, Amendes, Mary, Emma, Elizabeth, Julia, George, Lucile, George, William, Charles, Elizabeth and Henry. Some of the children died young (hence the duplicate names).
