I recently purchased at a flea market a Victorian photo album with 70 photos which I believe may be of members of the Knauss family. The album also includes three memorial cards, two for Sarah Koch and one for Mary G. Sell (both died 1911). One of the Sarah Koch memorial cards states that the Emaus Trombone (spelled Trumbone on the card) was there, as well as Mr. and Mrs. Will M. Jarriet, Miss Ella Iobst, Mr. John Kirschman, Mr. Robert Druckenmiller, Mr. Ed Giering, Mr. Geo. Knauss, Mr. Howard Knauss, & Miss Fannie Hausman, and that the Pall Bearers were L.S. Delong, S.E. Adam, A.C. Unger, M.B.Glase, A.F.Bauman, & S.A. Schuler, and that the sermon was by Rev. M.J. Brensinger of Fleedwood and Rev. C.D. Kauffman of
There are also three school photos (entire class) against a brick school from the same time period. One has faint handwriting on the back stating that one of the people in the photo is grandpa Kuhns and another states that one of the people in the photo is grandma Kuhns.
One of the baby photos is marked "May" (May Knauss-born 1910?) and another "Dewey".
I haven't tried to remove the photos to see if there is writing on the backs.
Is there someone in the family who can identify the people in the photos (ca 1880-1910) and would know if they are in fact Knauss family members?
