Family History Resources
& Site Bibliography
A large and thorough collection of Knapp family history, compiled by Sarah Knapp, sister of Della Knapp Cahalan, is on file. Relevant parts are included here.
A folder of information about the Cahalan family in the western US is not included here, since it does not directly concern the family at 100 Orange, but is maintained on file. It contains correspondence between various Cahalans in California and elsewhere--possibly descendants of a related branch of the Cahalan family--with Joseph Cahalan MD.
Sources are linked, wherever possible, to images of documents used in the compilation of this site. No particular bibliographical style--MFA, APA, Turabian--has been followed, though all relevant information is included in citations.
