Thank you for your response. I would like to invite others to do the same... simply state what you know of the origins of the name and where your line comes from, UK or GMY. I am asking these questions because another researcher seems to believe that my ggggreat grandfather, George Knipp, was the son of a Christian Knipe and Mary Wismer and that the name just evolved into Knipp. All of the data that I have ever found does not support this theory, but I have to at least look at it as a possible lead. I believe that my George Knipp was the son of an Adam Knipp from PA, then Wythe co, VA. I only have one piece of evidence to support this... George Knipp's mariage bond to Rebecca Townsend (my ggggreat grandmother). It SEEMS to state that George was the son of "the above bond, Adam Knipp". The script back in that time was very hard to read.... but it absolutely "looks" like what I just mentioned. There were two Adam Knipps in the area (VA) at that time. More comments, anyone?
