MartinJohn Knaus/ Christian Henry Knaus

I'm a descendent of Martin (father) and Christian (son) Knaus. Martin Born Oct.3, 1847 in Germany - Christian born May 10, 1867 in southern Germany. Does anybody have any information on these Knauses? How might I find the TOWN or CITY where these 2 were born and where they lived before immigration to America?

I think that Martin's 2nd AND 3rd wives were on the order of "mail order" brides. Were there groups that linked German immigrant men with women (sight unseen) in Germany who subsequently immigrated to America and married? Newspaper ads?
