My GGG Grandfather Samuel Knipe came from the Island of Saint
Helena. He was born abt 1780. His mother was Anna Penelope (Legg)
Knipe. Don't know his father's name. He had a sister Mary who
married Joseph Henry Fisher 30 Mar 1835 in Capetown, So. Africa.
Samuel came into Boston Harbor as a young man and never returned to
Saint Helena. Can anyone help with more info? Thanks in advance.
