Info from Janis Pahnke, Chicago, IL:
Anyone descended from this line will be interested to learn that Janis has proven that John Frost was the son of John and Ruth (Scripture) Frost. Ruth Scripture was the daughter of this Elizabeth Knapp. Also of interest is the fact that Elizabeth Knapp's mother was the sister of Mary (Warren) Bigelow.
see: Knapp, Elizabeth, b 21 Feb 1655 (from: Forge Vol. 26, No. 3; July 1997)
Hi, I am descended from the Knapps and Warrens through Samuel
Scripture and Elizabeth Warren Knapp. Down from there I descend from
their son John to his son John to his son Eleazer, to his son Roswell Scripture
to their daughter Sophia Scripture who married into the Mabie family, William.
From William and Sophias son Arba to Elmer to Elmer to Luella
Mabie to me. Anyhow, on your web page you mentioned that there is proof that our Elizabeth Warren Knapp is the one who was tried as a witch. Could you tell or show me what that proof is? You also have quite a few varying dates for Samuel and Elizabeth Knapp Scriptures children. Mostly it is a month or year that is off. Where did you get your documentation?
Thanks for any help you may give. Barb Kineke
