*I just located this in my files and thought it might be helpful for someone.*

I didn't have any additional info on Thaddeus & Ruth but I decided to do a little snooping inHeritageQuest's census, sort of "Pay Forward", hoping someone will see fit
to help me along the way. Also, a bit of warning on searching the census for the Knopp family. They appear
as Knopp, Knapp, Knop, Knap, Knoop and any other way you can think to spell it plus the census transcribers can't tell a written a from an o, or don't care???

We pick up the family in 1860 with Catherine as the head, John Jacob her husband had died in 1856. There were 8 children ranging from age 22 down to 4, with 4 born
in Germany and 4 in Texas.

In 1870 only the 3 youngest are at home, Thaddeus 18,
James 16 and Isabel or Isabella 13. In 1880, Thaddeus 28 is living a few houses from James and his mother.

Of course we are missing the 1890 census but we lucked out with the informative 1900 one.
Thaddeus and Ruth are living in 1st Ward, Edna, Jackson, TX and have one child, daughter Nora age 12, born Oct 1887. It shows them to have been married 16 years,
Ruth has given birth to 2 children with 1 living. Thaddeus' nativity is Texas, Germany, Germany and
Ruth's is Texas, Virginia, "Misoura".
Thaddeus' occupation is Stock Raiser.

In 1910 they are still in Pct 1, Jackson, TX with only one difference, the census shows Ruth as having one child with one living, not uncommon.

Oh forgot, Nora is not living there.
This confirms you only have to search for one person, Nora...rare for that era.
