THE BLAU FAMILY
The marriage record of Johann Peter Blau indicates he was from Kannawurf, approximately 4 miles southwest of Sachsenburg. The ink used in early church records of Kannawurf is very faded and is unreadable.
Christian Gottleb Blau of Lauchstadt, located approximately 40 miles northeast of Frankenhausen, and wife Amalie Friederike, had children including:
1. Amalie Friederike Blau, born about 1807. She married 28 year old widower Johann Wilhelm Justus Vonnoe, cabinetmaker (Tischler) on February 28, 1830 in Frankenhausen. He was born September 15, 1802 to Meister Christoph Gunther Vonnoe, cabinetmaker.
