Joeseph Knipe lived in Mount Joy Pennsylvania, and was a farmer.
He served in the Civil War two different times, was wounded 4 times, and severely wounded Stonewall Jackson and stopped the south from advancing. Research shows he may have won the war for the North by this act.
His uniform and pistols are housed in the Harrisburg Pa Museum and he has 9 descendants living in Lancaster County Pa.
I am one of his descendants.
He and his wife named one of their daughters after his wife, who was my grandmother. My grandmother and grandfather Harry D. and Ida Mae Snell, Sr. named their son after Harry Sr. who was my father. I have named my son after me.
Coincidence? You decide.
