    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. [6, 7, 8]
