Biography of Joseph Knauber


Knauber, Joseph, Lancaster, was born in Lancaster in 1831 and is the son of John Knauber, who came from Germany in 1829 and was a farmer. Mr. Knauber began life by learning the wagonmaker's trade and in 1856 started a planing mill on a small scale, which was added to from year to year until it became the large plant which he now runs, where he manufactures sash, doors and blinds; he also does a large building and contracting business. He has four sons: John V., Joseph, jr., William B. and Edward B.; also five daughters: Anna (Mrs. Joseph Adolf), Barbara (Mrs. A. Sandell), Matilda (Mrs. J. P. Sommers), Helen (Mrs. John May) and Katie. Mr. Knauber has always taken an active interest in the welfare of the village and was for some years one of its trustees.
