Our immigrant ancestor was Martin Knab, born November 6, 1791 in Unzhurst Germany. He died 1839 in Erie County, Kenmore, NY. Buried at St.John the Baptist Church Cemetery, Kenmore, NY.
Martin married Maria Anna Bohn, Nov 17 1819 in Moos, Baden, Germany. She was born 1793 in Oberbruch, Baden, Germany and died 1866 in Kenmore, NY.
