Knoell/Knoll in Gundy Center, IA

Surnames: Knoell/Knoll Langer
My greatgrandparents came over from the Old Country. The were Germans living in Bohemia and citizens of Austria.
Emilian Hazel Knoell b: November 20, 1855 in Vlchovice, P. O. Madlov, Pardubice, Ohres of Usti nad Orlici, Bohemia d: July 07, 1940 in New Helena, Custer Cty, NE
..+Marie (Mari) Langer b: September 10, 1862 in Kunvald, Pardubice, Ohres Usti nad Orlici, Bohemia m: July 11, 1880 in Rokinitz or Mladkov, Bohemia d: August 11, 1941 in Grand Island, Hall Cty, NE
Emilian was persuaded to leave Bohemia and come to America by Pius Christen who had been here since 1886. He left for the U.S. from Rekonivk with one child, Mae. They arrived in America in New York on the SS Elbe on April 15, 1892. He was 37 years old. He and Mae went to Gundy Center, Iowa to his sister's house to await Marie and the other children.
I have no idea of the married name of his sister. Guess I am hoping someone will recognize the surname as the maiden name of their great grandmother. We spell it Knoell but I know it was spelled Knoll with a umlaug over the "o" in many places.

Audrey:
Have you heard the last name of Heller before? My great grandmother was Mrs. Pius Christen and her name was Hattie Pohl-the same one you mentioned in your query. She also stayed at Grundy Center Iowa upon arriving in America with her sister Mary (Pohl) Heller. Mary's husband's name was Louis or "Lew." There was also a brother named William Pohl. You may also want to consider the name Kissell or Kuessell as she was also either a close friend or relative from the same area in Rokinitz who settled in New Helena Nebraska.

Then, I wrote it wrong. Should Be: Grundy Center, Grundy Co. IA.
