Re: Knapp-NY metro area
Hi, again. Well, we don't have any LDS converts. The names that run through my Knapps suggest a strong biblical sect(Ebenezer, Ithamar, Beulah, Israel, etc). For a long time I thought they must come from the Puritans that descended from Nicholas. But recently I read a letter from a relative genealogist. He had a 'vague' memory of his father saying our Knapps came from the Alsonce Lorraine area of Germany. This area I think is Roman Catholic. Where in Leeds did Elizabeth go? Ithamar and Israel went to Bastard, Leeds, Ontario. They went to a place called Plum Hollow apparently. There was another Knapp that appeared in Bastard at that time: Lois Knapp daughter of Zadock, who did descend from Nicholas. You'd think if you knapp went to LDS they'd have the records. Have you checked their web site? I'll let you know if I get anywhere. Ruth.
