FREDERICK KNIERMAN, farmer and stock-dealer, P.O. Evansburg, was born March 8, 1827, in Bavaria, Germany, son of Frederick and Elizabeth (Burkhardt) Knierman, natives of Bavaria, Germany, the former born in 1799, the latter in 1804. They were parents of two sons and five daughters, of whom Frederick is the eldest. : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bavaria

Our subject served as a soldier one year, and came to America in 1849, where he remained one year, and then returned to his native country. In 1851 he again came to America, this time with his parents, who settled in Meadville, Penn., where they still reside. Soon after coming here, our subject, along with 101 others, went to the Isthmus of Panama to work on the railroad being constructed there. Here they were seized with that terrible disease, yellow fever, and all perished but our subject and another man.

Mr. Knierman was married, in 1852, to Josephine Kipart, born in 1832, in Union Township, Crawford Co., Penn. By this union were eleven children, eight now living: Benjamin F., Catharine, Frederick W., Lizzie, George, John, Henry and Mary A. The deceased are Frank, Frederick, and. Josephine (who died when a child). All live at home except Benjamin F., who married Elinor A. Hollenback, who bore him two children: Franklin R. and Blanche A. Our subject came to America a poor man, but by industry and economy has amassed considerable property.

In 1859 he went to Mercer County, Penn., where he followed farming and dealt in real estate, buying, improving and selling farms, until, as some one remarked, "by looking over the records of Mercer County, one would suppose Frederick Knierman had owned one-half of that county." In 1874 he returned to this county, and in 1879 came to Sadsbury Township, locating on a well-improved farm of 300 acres on the State road, about one mile from Evansburg. He has shelter for all his stock, and all the conveniences necessary for a well conducted farm. Mr. Knierman is the Treasurer and oldest member of the I.O.O.F., Evansburg; is a Republican in politics. His wife belongs to the Rebekah Lodge, and both are members of the Presbyterian Church.
