Knab in Unzhurst/Moos Baden Germany

Our immigrant ancestor was Martin Knab, born November 6, 1791 in Unzhurst Germany. He died 1839 in Erie County, Kenmore, NY. Buried at St.John the Baptist Church Cemetery, Kenmore, NY.

Martin married Maria Anna Bohn, Nov 17 1819 in Moos, Baden, Germany. She was born 1793 in Oberbruch, Baden, Germany and died 1866 in Kenmore, NY.

We believe they immigrated to NY in 1831. They came with 5 children:
Maria Anna, born 1823 Moos. Married B.Gohn 1843
Rufina, born 1825 Moos. Married Deiss. Died 1850
Aegidius, born 1827 Moos.Married Kramer. Died 1871, Lancaster, NY.
Dionysius, born 1828 Moos. Married Rusch. Died 1920,Kenmore NY.

We were able to trace our Knab generations back to Unzhurst Germany using FHL microfilm #1045112.
