ISO William KNAUSS/KNAUSE family info
Am searching for further info on William KNAUSE family found in 1880 IN Federal Census.
William, age 73, born PA
Lennia(?), wife, age 48, born PA
Miles, son, age 15, born IN
Clarance, son, age 14, born IN
John, son, age 6, born IN
living in Marion Co, Center Twp, Indianapolis, 33 Arsenal Ave.
William (Wm J) KNAUSS is found in the Indianapolis directory as early as 1872. Miles in 1881, then in 1882 as M Dana KNAUSS. Clarence and John show up in 1887.
The surname becomes clearly KNAUSS by 1902 when John married Elizabeth FAUST; prior to that there seems to be some discrepancy from the census to the directories.
