Seeking information on the OCHS families of Niagara and Tonawanda NY- especially descendants of GEORGE OCHS and ODELIA KNAB.

Joseph Born ~1833, George ~1835 and Andrew Jr. ~1848 are sons of Andrew Ochs b. 1808 Baden and wife Martina GOHN.

George Ochs married Odelia KNAB b. 1836. Odelia's father Martin Knab was born in Unzhurst Baden Germany and immigrated to Kenmore, Nordbush NY around 1831. Our Knab ancestral line has been traced back to the late 1500's in Unzhurst.
