Louis was born 27 Mar 1841 in Rittershoffen and immigrated to Ohio about 1872. He later moved on to Indiana and died there on 6 Aug 1892. He is buried in Ft. Recovery, Ohio. Does anyone have immigration/naturalization records for Louis? Did either of his siblings (Heinrich or Jacques) immigrate with him?
I believe his parents were Jean Georges Knab and Caroline Goetzmann. Can anyone confirm this information for me? Do you have any more information about his ancestors.
It appears that Louis may have married Madeleine Arbogast and fathered a child, also named Madeleine, in Rittershoffen. I cannot find any further record of Madeleine. Louis was my g-grandfather and my grandmother never heard of another possible wife, so I don't think she came to the states. Does anyone have any more details about Madeleine?
Thank you so much for any help you may be able to give me.
