    Notes 
    • Samuel, Susannah, Rachel, David, and Solomon Knapp were named as siblings of Benjamin S. Knapp in Catherine Labaugh Knapp's will, but the identity of their parents has not been proved. Many undocumented trees say that their parents were Benjamin Knapp and Hannah. See Benjamin Knapp 3rd (I2097 on this site) Other undocumented trees and A. A. Knapp's Nicholas Knapp Genealogy say that they were Samuel Knapp and Nancy (or Mary) Lyon. It is important to note that the information on the Knapp family of Fulton County, New York (which includes four of the six Knapp siblings) in A. A. Knapp's book contains many errors and inconsistencies. [2, 11, 12]

    Notes 
    • The children of David and Abiah named on this site include only those named in David's will. David's son Solomon I. Knapp, an executor of the will, declared in probate that there were no other heirs or next of kin. There may have been children who died before the will was written in 1834 and are not in this list.
      The following were named as David's children in A.A. Knapp's Nicholas Knapp Genealogy but were not in David's will.
      H-707 David, m. Hannah Osborne. I have placed this David in Solomon Knapp's family for reasons explained in a note on David Benjamin Knapp's page of this site.
      H-708 Mary, m. David Ashley, Grafton, Ohio. David Ashley was merely the official in Grafton, Ohio who deposed William McConnell and E.C. McConnell, the witnesses who saw David sign his will. Ashley was not otherwise mentioned in the probate papers or will.
      H-717. John, b. before 1806. m. Jane ________
      H-718. Benjamin.
