Glorianna CLIMIE & William KNAPP of Sarnia ON and Detroit Michigan
Posted by: Dallas (ID *****7451) Date: June 12, 2007 at 10:52:51

I am hoping to find out what happened to this couple after the 1900 Census listing showing them in Detroit ~

1900 CENSUS - Detroit, Wayne, Michigan

William Knapp, head, 44, married 18 yrs, born Mar 1856 Canada, father born New York, mother born Scotland,
*Glorianna Knapp, wife, 44, married 18 yrs, born Oct 1844 Canada, had 3 children [2 living], born Canada, parents born Scotland
Edgar Knapp, son, age 16, born Jun 1883 Canada, teamster
Frank Knapp, son, age 13, born Sep 1886 Canada, at school

The family had been in Michigan since 1893, a year after their marriage which according to this info took place AFTER the birth of all 3 children which included daughter Mary born 1884 in Canada.

William John KNAPP was working as an engineer with the water department of Sarnia, Lambton county, Ontario when son Frank was born in 1886.

Glorianna CLIMIE was born Oct 1855 in Plympton Twp, Lambton, d/o William CLIMIE & Marion PARK.

Son Frank married Irene Josephine LITCHFIELD in 1917 in Grand Ledge, Oneida Twp, Eaton, Michigan and died there in 1950. As far as I have been able to find out, they never had any children of their own but Irene did have at least 1 daughter from her 1st marriage.

Any help greatly appreciated!!
