Henke married to Phillip Knapp-Rochester, NY

I know I am related to Philip Knapp b 1855 d. 1926 m. 1879 to Ellen Canny. They are buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetary in Rochester, NY. What I am trying to find out is his mother's name. His father is Philip and was born about 1832 in Germany. Some census years state his wife's name as Mary (1860)and some as Lucy (1850). The death certificate came in as Mary U. Henke Knapp born in Switzerland and the tombstone only says Ursula Knapp! The cemetary record is written as Mary U. I realize she may be a second wife married after Lucy died. But at the catholic cemetary there is no other adult female in this lot. Of course, she could be protestant for all I know. Any info is greatly appreciated.
