I had a Great Uncle by the name of Abe Knisley m. Mae Throop back about 1895-1900. They lived in Washtenaw County. Believe they had a son and a daughter, Jane that I can remember. Jane had a daughter Dorothy who married a Shoebridge. But that is all I know of the family. You also might try Oakland county,Livingston Co., and Monroe Co. I believe Mae was born in Milan in Washtenaw Co but there were relatives in all above counties that she may have met Abe.
