Anna Knorr Emch
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 14, 1820, Switzerland
Death: Jan. 18, 1861
Fairfield County
Ohio, USA

Anna Knörr was born on 14 March 1820, in Switzerland and died on 18 January 1861, in Fairfield County, Ohio. Anna's family were early converts from Roman Catholicism to the Protestant Anabaptist Church faith. They were persecuted for their religious beliefs in Switzerland and forced to pay higher taxes and special fees by the region's Catholic officials. Several members of the family fled from their native Canton of Bern to Germany and the Netherlands during the 1600s. Others moved north to the canton of Solothurn, which was populated by an enclave of Protestants. Religious persecution may have played some part in Anna Knörr's parents and younger siblings immigrating to the Ohio Valley in America in the mid-1800s. Anna and her husband, Johannes Emch followed her family to America a few years later onboard the SS Charles Cooper and arrived in New York City on 3 June 1857. Anna borne Johannes Emch nine children.
