I have reached out to the previous posters on knapp's of so. illinois concerning Jerome Knapp's parents and cannot get any replies except from Charlotte (thanks for your help).
I can trace my line to Jerome Knapp who was born in 1815/1816 in Ohio or Vermont and died in the Battle of Shiloh 1862 but I cannot find anything on his parents. It seems many people claim his father is Ira Calvin Knapp who was born in Vermont . They claim Ira is born in 1790 but Find-A-Grave says Feb. 13, 1802. He died in Ohio 1882. These trees also claim Jerome's mother is Betsy Stokes Knapp. She is born in 1808 making her 8 yrs old when Jerome is born. Census data does not show any one named Jerome to be born to this couple.
Does anyone have documentation to support who were Jerome Knapp's parents?
