Jim, I have just begun to seek the Polly Knipe and Joseph Tucker who had an 1810 Lincoln Co., NC, marriage bond. Today while searching for anyone likely to be kin in Catawba Co., NC, I found two Civil War soldiers who enlisted in that county. (Search "Catawba County, NC, Civil War soldiers." The site begins with a picture of veterans taken just before WWI.) They were Martin Knup and Miles M. Knup, both of Company F, 38th Regiment. This Miles--Miles M., born about 1826--was killed in action in 1864 at Spotsylvania Court House. Martin has no information except the source, which is the same source as for Miles, so one hopes that Martin survived. There is no Canipe, Kanipe, or Knipe on the soldiers list.

The 1850 Catawba census index online includes people with surnames spelled Canup, Knop, and Kneep, but no Canipe, Kanipe or Knipe. Who knows what was intended. The poor scribes of this world! (There is a Kneip forum, etc., on Genforum, by the way.) Let me know if you catch a glimpse of Polly/Mary Tucker. Sarah
