Bio and Links
Bio Photo In an effort to find my missing Aunt, I came upon Find A Grave and genealogy. Now three years later, I've made serious in-roads on both my family and my wife's family trees; though I've still not found my missing Aunt!!

Lorraine Barbara Knapp was born 22 Jul 1926 in Shell Lake, Washburn, Wisconsin. She married John Charles Hurd on 4 Sep 1948. To them five children were born; three remain alive as of August 2014. Her two younger brothers (one deceased), ex-husband (deceased) and her children had/have no knowledge as to her whereabouts. A missing persons report has been filed, DNA samples and dental records submitted, Social Security Number checked . . . no clues. NamUS ( searched. The profile picture is Lorraine, 1983 in Riverside, California, her last known residence. A link to her profile is listed below.

This page is dedicated to her.

Finding, documenting and sharing through this venue helps to build family stories and honor those we loved as well as those whom we never knew.

Family is important!

"The family is our refuge and our springboard; nourished on it, we can advance to new horizons. In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future." Alex Haley

The memorials I add or manage are all relatives. You may use any / all photographs that I have added if you credit "Tom Knapp" as source. Source is important in that if others want original documentation or additional information, they know where to seek.

Suggestions, corrections, additions, etc are always welcome to those memorials I manage.

A hearty "THANK YOU" to all the volunteers!!! Your efforts are greatly appreciated and create everlasting memories for generations to come.

Excellent! I love the poem/inscription.

Shipman photos - hearse cemetery

Absolutely you can use the photos I took of your 5th grandparents.

Since you are a direct relative I will transfer their memorials to you if you wish. Just let me know!

Duval photo's
Yes you may use them all. I just put the last one in. There are a bunch! Also, there are 2 that don't have the Duval name; Orville Rice Hauser husband of Susan "Duval" Hauser. If you have enough to link these family members, you should ask for them from Find a Grave. I think they own all of them. That's one big family plot. Always nice to see that. You have my permission to use them. I was glad to do it for you. Please take care! And thank you for your kindness. Thanks, Kristy Rice
