The below information was provided by family member taken from a Knippers genealogy book. Title of book unknown to me. Believe to be private published and printer has gone out of business.
Rose, fourth child of Thomas Theopolus (Tom) Knippers and Margaret Deseria (Peggy) Lambert, Knippers, was born in St. Helena Parish, LA, on her father's Old Homestead, in Greensbury Comunity of East Central Louisiana. She grew up in the community joining the Line Creek Baptist Church at an early age. The church is located one mile south of the Mississippi-Louisiana Line.
On August 29, 1853, in Greensburg, St. Helena Parish, LA, Rose married John A. Hayes (February 15, 1822 -September 14 1889), son of Parker Hayes, born around 1800. John was born in Mississippi.
According to Inez Brothers, a great-grand daughter of Rose and John; John was Supply Sergeant in the Confederate States Army, with Co. E, 6th Louisiana Infantry. He supplied the Blockade Runners to the Front Lines of Central West Louisiana with ammunition, food and clothing.
Sometime between 1867, the birth of their seventh child, and 1870, the birth of their eighth child, they moved to Sabine Parish, in the West Central part of Louisiana where the rest of their children were born.
John and Rose settled on the East Bank of Toro Creek, a few miles South of its heading. Their children attended the Bay Springs School that was located at the head of Toro Creek, which was fed by several large sprigs. In 1889, John died, leaving Rose a widow. Her son, Marshall, who had gone across Toro Creek, on the West side, had homsteaded some land and built his home, shared it with his mother until her death in 1917.
John and Rose are buried in the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church Cemetery, in the Florien Community of Sabine Parish, Louisiana.
