Hi Anne, I am also searching the family name Knipe. On our family tree We have a Julia and a Margaret. They were sisters.I know Julia married in Moneymore Londonderry Ireland.Moved to England, had 4 children, and then came to the states in about the 1920's ( Illinois ), Her sister Margaret I believe went on to Canada after she married. Julia and Margaret married brothers. Are you able to help in my search?
