1630. Including Also a Tabulated Pedigree, Paternal and Maternal of Hiram Knapp (1909). CS/71/K675/1909
NICHOLAS KNAPP GENEALOGY by Alfred A. Knapp
A monumental work and much used as a resource by those researching the Knapp Family in America. Please check information from this book against the updated information to be found at the Knapp database website listed below in the internet resource section (1953). CS/71/K675/1953
SUPPLEMENT TO THE NICHOLAS KNAPP GENEALOGY by Alfred
THE BENSON FAMILY: DESCENDANTS OF ISSAC BENSON AND
MARY BUMPAS AND ALLIED FAMILYS by Grace Hildy Croft.
Jacob Knapp married Martha Benson in Fabius, New York around 1812. She is listed in this book and her ancestors are given. Information on Knapps descended from Martha and Jacob are given as well. (Compare information from the edition you are referencing against the information on this site. There were a couple areas in the Knapp information given in this book that require clarification.) A large volume with much interesting information. Second Edition (1973) CS/71/B47/1973
THE FAUST/FOUST FAMILY IN GERMANY AND AMERICA by
Dr. Howard Faust.
This is considered the quintessential source-book for information on the Faust/Foust family. A tremendous undertaking with fine results and extensive information on this family. Elias Knapp married Margaret Foust. She is listed in this book (ref. code B1A2B2) along with her ancestors going all the way back to the 1500's. Highly recommended and very interesting reading.
Given the amazing scope of this work it's not surprising that there are a few errors, so use this as a reference for your own research. I have personally come across one family that was attached to the wrong line. Generally speaking however, once you get back to the early Pennsylvania and German information, you can count on it being accurate. It has been sourced and checked, and double checked.
The widow of Dr. Howard Faust is the only source at this time for ordering books. I'm not sure how many are left. To contact her about availability, price, and shipping information you can try her e-mail at: email@example.com
