From History & Directory of Yates Co NY:
MATTHEW KNAPP. At the age of eighty-eight years, this primitive settler of Barrington still survives. When he went to that town he says there was but one house between Penn Yan and Col. Teeples', and that was Finley's tavern. He is a native of Orange county, and his wife was Mary Knapp, (not a relative,) who died at the age of eighty-seven. He had a brother Charles who lived in Barrington, and John, another brother, who lived and died there. Mr. Knapp was largely instrumental in organizing a Free Will Baptist Church, near the old Teeples place at an early day, and was one of its earnest leaders. His children are Hannah, Sally, Christiana, Eliza, William, Levi C. and Jesse C. Hannah married John Pratt, and had four sons and two daughters. Sally married James Bignall, a Free Will Baptist preacher, had seven children and died in Pultney. Christiana married David Randolph of Milo, and has four children. Eliza married Ira Derring, lived in Barrington till recently and now in Elmira. She has several children. William married Eliza Osborn and moved to Steuben county. Levi C. Knapp married Maria Turner of Jerusalem. They have had five children of whom but two are living ; both are married and living in Wayne. Jesse C. Knapp married Rachel Hopkins, and has had seven children, of whom two are married. He is a prominent citizen and has held various public positions.
