That's as far back as I can go. My William Knapp (1775-1856) is a brick wall problem. I described it in more detail in my post My Elusive Ancestor - William Knapp (1775-1857). I would appreciate any suggestions that my readers might have about his parentage!

I was working at the NEHGS library today when I read this and I was very excited for all of five minutes. Your William Knapp and Sarah Cutter are in the supplement to the Nicholas Knapp genealogy. However, when you look at his proposed father you realize it's not correct. Bummer. Everything else I did added up to nada. Sorry.
