It arrived on Thursday, just as cousin Mike’s postmaster had promised.
What a treasure trove! And how generous of Mike to send me the disk with his Wise Guys family newsletter on it, along with personal research and photos.
And speaking of photos – check out the photo of our our immigrant ancestor’s younger brother, John Adam KNAPP. As far as I know, this is the only photo I have ever seen of him.
I think we can get some idea of what his brother, Franz Adam KNAPP, must have looked like. I don’t know if they resembled each other or not, but we can certainly speculate.
What an amazing find!
I have my own ideas of who he resembles, but let’s hear from the rest of the Knapp clan…does anyone think John Adam looks like any of our present-day Knapp family? Post a comment or two and let us know what you think.
And I just want to say a huge “thank you” to Mike Wise, for sharing his research with us. Mike has been at this for decades – and he a lot of great stories to share with us about the family.
And here’s another sample of the great stuff yet to come: a photo of John Adam’s daughter, Mary KNAPP, with her husband, John J. WISE.
During the course of the next few weeks/months, I will be organizing and uploading Mike’s research and newsletters to Knapp Notes – so we can all enjoy them. So stay tuned for more information/updates in the near future.
