Spelling variants I can see in my printouts include KNILLER, KNOELLER, 
KNUELLER and perhaps consider also, because of possible error in 
transliteration, KNITTLER / KNETTLER.

I only see these variants after 1880.  Before 1875 there are a few 
KNOLLER.  I don't see any possible variants between 1875 and 1879.

It appears most likely that Justina was born in Poland before the family 
moved to Volhynia.  Did she have any younger siblings that might fit the 
1880-85 births?
