I am researching both my paternal (Knowles), and maternal (Petrauskas) lineage. Any information regarding these, or related families, would be greatly appreciated.
The Knowles family originated in Staffordshire, England and emigrated to Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania in 1845 aboard the packet ship, "Champlain". The family patriarch, George Nathaniel Knowles, was born June 29, 1787, but his parentage is unknown. He married three times, (Ann Thomas in 1807, Hannah Tipton in 1824, & Phoebe Lloyd in 1835), and fathered nine children. Related families include Stone, Stephenson, Meek, Holmes, Evans, Sarjeant, Lauer, Kline, and Maberry.

The Petrauskas family emigrated from Lithuania to the United States at the beginning of the twentieth century. Nothing is known about the family prior to that time. Later generations changed their surname to "Petrousky" in some cases, and "Pettrow" in others. Related families include Krusnauskas, Mackeravage, Stusalitis, and Grigas.
