Knecht's in Pottsville, PA

I am looking for information about Benjamin (or Benedict/Benedick) Knecht who was born @1842 in Baden and in the 1880 census lived in the 7th ward, Pottsville. He is listed as a carpenter. I believe he arrived in the U.S. after 1850. His wife was Dorothea (nee Schaffner) or Dorothy and I believe they were married in Newark, NJ. Their children, all born in Pottsville, were Cecilia (b. @1870), August (b. @1872), Agnes (b. @1876), Amelia (b. @1885), Albert (b.@1881) and Mary/Maria (b. @1880). In the 1900 census he is listed as Benedick and is living in Philadelphia. I would appreciate any information you could give me. This is my husbands grandmother's family.
