My father's family is from Lincoln & Cleveland Cos., NC. My surname, CANIPE, is dervived from KNIPE, which was a corruption of the German KNEIP. Our earliest ancestor was Christian KNEIP/KNIPE who came to Philadelphia from Rotterdam aboard the ship RANIER in Sept. 1749. Christian was most likely from Saarland or Wurttemberg in Southwestern Germany. Christian's sons settled in Lincoln & Cleveland Cos., NC. There is a lot of intermarrige with the REINHARDT family. It is my understanding that all of the CANIPEs/KANIPEs/KNEIPs/KNIPEs in these counties are the descendants of Christian KNEIP. The most common variations found in Western NC are: KNEIP, KNIPE, KEN(N)IPE, KANIPE, and CANIPE. Unfortunately, I did not recognize any of your names... but the location and intermarriage with the REINHARDTs makes me think your KNIPEs are descended from the German KNEIPs.
