Hallo Mrs. Havey,
of course you're right. The roots of the Knost family are in Germany. Even here in Germany we are not so many, and here is the name a little unsual too (as Mr. Michael DeWayne K. said). The line of my direct family lived for more than 300 years in a little village in the county of Westfalia, formerly called Vilsendorf, which is nowadays a part of the city called Bielefeld.
