Bio and Links
Bio Photo In an effort to find my missing Aunt, Lorraine B Hurd (nee Knapp), I came upon Find A Grave and genealogy. Five years, 7 months and 19 days later, I finally found her!!! How? Through a posting on Find A Grave by a member volunteer!!

Her Find A Grave Memorial Page is here: Lorraine B Hurd

A link to her profile "Website" 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.

Elisabeth Wiegand Dignin
Tom, I love to chase down family hand-down stories. These stories seem to tell us more about this person than just a birth and death date. Please ask your wife if she ever heard that Elisabeth had a wooden leg, if so, how did it happen. I assume a broken leg from an buggy accident and current medical care was the cause, but I have no verification.

Hi Tom, I am just curious, do you have any family connect with these families? I am guessing, maybe with the Wiegand family. I live in Kiel, WI about 13 miles from Union Cemetery. Elisabeth Wiegand Dignin is my Ggrandmother. I am always happy to connect with another relative.

Hello Tom. I wrote a few months back to see if you had any more info on the date of death for Rocco. I was wondering if there is any additional info I can go to the Cemetery Office with re his date of death ?

RE: Sylvanus Knapp
We probably are not related.

Sylvanus Knapp and Phoebe Clark, my 4g-grandparents, had the following children, per the Nicholas Knapp Genealogy book.
SYLVANUS KNAPP, son of E-223. Amos and (Nelson) Knapp.
B. 1771, Danbury, Conn.
D. 1828.
M. Phoebe Clark.
G-1432. Timothy,b. 1803. m. 1st? 2nd Martha
G-1433. Marana, b. 1794. d. 1831. m. Ephraim
G-1434. Amos, b. 1796. d. Jan. 18, 1856. m.
Phoebe or Mary Butler.
G-1435. Reuben, b. Dec. 17, 1799. d. Sept. 1,
1886. m. Pauline Coon.
G-1436. Orilla, b. 1801. d. 1892. m. 1st Phinny
Potter. 2nd Peter Woger.
G-1437. Eliza or Elisa, b. 1805.
G-1438. Cyrus, b. 1805/07. d. 1837.

There is no son Ira and there is no mention of a second wife. I am inclined to assume that the Sylvanus Knapp buried in Sterling Center Cemetery is not the Sylvanus who married Phoebe. If you think he is, what do you think is the evidence? These Knapps are confounding me! dccrooks

Sylvanus Knapp
What is the evidence that he died and was buried in Sterling, NY?

What is the evidence that he had a second wife Mary Josephine? When did Phoebe die?

Sylvanus Knapp and Phoebe Clark are my 4g-grandparents.

Also according to the online Cypress Lawn database, in the same niche are:

Bernard Herzog
Memorial page and photo added:

Oscar Herzog

The data base also shows Marie's middle name as Louise.

Hope this helps.
