I have relative named Adam Knopp born 1863 in Taylor Co. Ky (County Seat Campbellsville) His brothers - Anthony & Benjamin sister Katherine - Adam was 94 when he died. Amanda died sept 16 1957 burried Our Lady of The Hills Finley, KY.There are a lot of Knopps in that cemetary. Also Taylor Co real estate books may interest you. According to my notes Adam's father was John. Believe John came from Germany - Benjamin was born 1859 Erie County, New York - I am really!! Really !! not very good at this so my notes could be off but sounds like the Adam you are looking for.
