Aunt Sarah Knapp's Collection, Part 4:

Knapp Family Tintypes

These pictures were found among the genealogical materials of Aunt Sarah Knapp, sister of Della Knapp Cahalan, the wife of John C. Cahalan, Jr.. From her, they had passed to her niece, Ann Marie Cahalan Sullivan.


These are among the oldest images in the collection.  Aunt Sarah is, in many ways, the original genealogist of this branch of the family and her notes, which are part of the tree I've developed at, trace her Knapp forebears ​back as far as the England in the 1200's

Numbered in the order in which they were scanned--a indicates the face, or obverse, of the photo, and b indicates its reverse (if information was to be found there)--this group includes several photographs which have been identified; that information is included in the captions to the images. The originals were first grouped and scanned on July 28th, 2007, and are filed under that date. They have been re-scanned at a higher definition for this upload.
