She was daughter of John and Dorothy (PINNEO) REED, and widow of Capt. Job KNAPP. I don't have her first marriage date. I am not sure of her relationship to the Ruth KNAPP who m. James WHITNEY, but I think she was her mother, and that the latter couple were step-brother and step-sister. Ruth (KNAPP) WHITNEY was b. ca. 1766, according to her age at death. They named their first son Job WHITNEY. This WHITNEY family is treated in Clarence W. Bowen, _History of Woodstock, Connecticut_, volume 8. Regards, Robert Robert L.
