Re: Michael Knapp born Germany 1845
There is a family who came to the U.S. from Germany on the Ship Sir Robert Peel in Nov. 1851.The oldest male, Michael Knapp, was 40 and there was a younger one, also named Michael Knapp, who was listed as 8yrs.old.You can find this informaiton at the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild web site.
I am interested in a Johan Knapp listed there. My great grandfather, John Knapp, is said to have come to the U.S. from Germany in the early 1800's with his family.
Happy hunting!Leana Knapp Lnad
