  • Notes 
    • Ephram Lindsay Knapp, an old resident of Sun Prairie and veteran of the Civil War, died at his home in this village Tuesday evening, Jan. 30 at 9 o'clock after an illness of about nine weeks, which seemed to be caused by a general breakdown. He was 74 years of age, his birthday being just one week before his death. Deceased was born in Penfield, Lorraine county, OH on Jan. 23, 1837. His boyhood and youth were spent in his native state. When the great civil war broke out he was a young man in the prime of life and Oct. 8, 1863 he enlisted in the Union Army and was assigned to Co. F., 12th Regiment Ohio Cavalry. He served to the close of the war and was honorably discharged at Nashville, TN on Nov. 14, 1865. Two years later, 1867 he came to Wisconsin and located at Sun Prairie. In 1880 he was united in marriage to Miss Kate Krebs. Three children were born of this union, Mrs. Walter Miller, Mr. William Knapp, and Miss Ollie Knapp, all residing in this village. These, together with the widowed mother, survive to revere his memory. One sister, Mrs. Austin Freeman of this village and a brother, Charles Knapp of Muskegon, MI also survive him. Deceased was well known throughout this farming section, having for years followed the vocation of sheep shearing. In the early days he did much toward clearing the wooded land, having acquired many an acres in this section. The funeral service will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 at Sacred Hearts Church, with Rev. J. J. Salentin officiating and interment will be made in the cemetery of that church
