2. Jeff W Knapp in Edina, Minnesota

My Knapp's hail from the Pittsburgh area. My ancestors were all farmers from
Western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. My fathers name was Frederick and his
dad's name was Joseph. My Grandfather started a working man's building and
loan association in Pittsburgh. My Dad told me that every Friday (Payday) Joseph
would go around to the taverns and collect the dues from each guy. Dues were
about 25Cents per week. From the accumulated funds, He would make loans to
working men to buy homes. This is how the Savings and Loan industry got started.

My son goes to college in Menomonie, Wisconsin and we drive right past the
village of Knapp to get there. It's a small town with about 675 residents. The village
of Knapp has a post office and the zip code is 54749.
