Notes
General:
Aaron settled on Roger's Farm Lot #55, just south of Daniel Knapp's farm. Aaron was one of a committee to build a bridge. Town meetings were held at Daniel's house.

"Settled on Rogers' farm lot, #55 [in 1797, Homer, NY, just south of Daniel Knapp's farm-Drake genealogy]. His mother-in-law was a dau. of the Annekjang family (Dutch), according to Geo. W. Knapp. (E.F.K. says: Probably not true but refers to Esther Drake.) The heirs on the Annekjang family are suppose to have a remote title to the land on which Trinity Church, New York, was built. There are sporadic attempts at litigation.

Aaron Knapp and Peggy, his wife (signed Margaret), in 1803, sold part of Lot 55, Homer, to Simson Leas? Aaron Knapp and his wife Peggy, with Thirza Knapp as witness. (See Records of Deeds, Pike Co., Illinois, 1821.) Aaron Knapp settled south of Daniel Knapp's in 1797. Town meeting was held at Daniel's home. Aaron was one of a committee to build a bridge."

FTK - The various history books do not agree as to when Aaron came to Homer. Various events are given which include his name anywhere from 1796 to 1800. In lists of the first settlers no mention is made of any Knapp until Stephen Knapp came first in 1798 to look over the land and then in 1799 when he brough the family. Records say this included only Stephen, Nathaniel, James and Daniel. But both Daniel and Aaron are mentioned in earlier town records.

Smith's History of Cortland County: "Aaron settled south of his brother Daniel (whose land included the present cemetery) on the farm now (1855) owned by Allen Smith."

That Aaron was an active citizen as well as a responsible one is shown by the many local projects in which he had a part. At a special town meeting given as 1797 held at Daniel Knapp's home, it was voted to "erect a bridge across the mills." Aaron was one of the committee of three named to report on the plan for the bridge. Then again in the records of the First Religious Society of Homer, organized September 10, 1799, one of the signers was Aaron Knapp. Later, at a regular meeting of this Society in the school October 10, 1803, Aaron was one of the committee of three "to draw plans for a meeting house, pitch upon a spot to set said meeting house."

Goodwin also mentions Aaron and James Knapp as having found a boy who was lost in the woods. The date was May, 1797. But it would seem that the period of 1795 to 1800 has no absolutely sure records.

The records of the First Religious Society are marked that Aaron moved from Homer, but it does not say where to.

Smith's History of Cortland County gives this: "In a smallpox scare the next spring Mr. Stimson took his wife and child to Aaron Knapp's in Cortlandville for vaccination."

"Aaron Knapp settled on lot 55 during the period under consideration (1796 - 99), and Enoch Hotchkiss on lot 76." - FTK

1880 Census. Aaron Knapp. 2 females under 10. Females 26 - 45: 2.

From the records of the Congretional Church of Homer: Aaron Knapp was the first mentioned under the date of Feb. 12, 1803 as follows - "The church met at Mr. Daniel Minors, and (1) conversed with Mr. Eben Stone and wife, Mr. Daniel Hoar and wife, and Mr. Aaron Knapp, candidates for church membership, and appointed them to be propounded." - FTK

Record of the church meeting held October 25, 1810: "Voted that the complaint which Dr. Jesse Searl has brought against Aaron Knapp ought not to be passed over without calling him to account." - FTK

The meeting on Nov. 20, 1810: "Agreed that the moderator [send] a friendly letter to Aaron Knapp respecting the difficulty subsisting between him and Dr. Jesse Searl and requesting him to come to Homer as soon as convenient and reconcile the difficulty."

The meeting on Dec. 18, 1810: "The difficulty subsisting between Dr. Jesse Searl [and] Aaron Knapp was brought up to view and pretty fully discussed. Brother Knapp denied some charges that were brought him. He was unprepared to stand in his defense, and desired that the meeting be adjourned to a future period, so that he could be able to prove that some of the charges that we alledged against him were groundless. Agreed that the meeting be adjourned."

The meeting on Dec. 18, 1810: "The case between Dr. Searl and Brother Knapp as resumed. The witnesses in favor of Brother Knapp appeared in church meeting, and were examined. Many things were said on the subject. The church came to no conclusion; the day being far spent, it was therefore thought expedient that a committee should be appointed to hear the difficulty. Agreed that the committee consist of eight with the moderator. The committee were Judge Ballard, Dea. Rice, Dea. Hitchcock, Darius Kinne, Jabob Hoar, Senas Lilly, Asa Kendall and Francis Strong. The meeting was adjourned at six o'clock in the evening."

The committee at the appointed time and after serious deliberation and a considerable degree of _________, they came to this conclusion: that Aaron Knapp should make an acknowledgement to the committee, and that it should be read at the next church meeting, in these words, to wit -- "I, Aaron Knapp, confess I was in passion in conversation and conduct between Dr. Searl and myself and that in an unchristian maner have thrown out many things which I ought not. I am sorry for it, and wish to be forgiven by God and the members of this church, and will endeavor for the future to be more on my guard." This the Doctor and Aaron Knapp conceded to. The meeting was dissolved." The meeting on March 9, 1811: "Agreed that the confession of Brother Knapp be accepted." - FTK

The meeting in March 1813: "2nd -- against Aaron Knapp, by Dea. Noah Hitchcock, a member of the same church in the folowing words, 'That the said Aaron Knapp while a member of the said church hath been guilty of a breach of Covenent in absenting himself from our Holy Communion, which for a number of months he has neglected.'" - FTK

The meeting on March 16, 1813: "The complaint against Aaron Knapp was exhibited. He, being present, requested the privelidge of giving some reasons for his conduct, in writing. He requested some assistance. Timothy Treat and Dea. Noah Hitchcock were appointed to assist him and with him withdrew." The case of Aaron Knapp was resumed, conversed on, etc. The meeting was adjourned till the next Tuesday. - FTK

The meeting on March 23, 1813: "Brother Aaron Knapp sent in a written confession which was read and voted to be satisfactory. The confession was in these words, 'Beloved Brethern. I have taken into consideration the difficulty which has laboured between the church and myself, and I am sensible that I have been much out of the way in withdrawing from my brethern in the ordinance of Holy Communion. I am heartily sorry for my fault for which I ask your forgiveness and humbly pray God to forgive and enable me to keep in the way of duty. I also ask your prayers to God Almighty that I may be Kept in the most Holy Faith that whether present or absent, I may be the Lord's. I also engage by devine grace assisting, to do my duty more faithfully for the future. Aaron Knapp.'" - FTK

The meeting on March 26, 1818: "A complaint was exhibited by Ira Kinney Jr., a member of this church, against Aaron Knapp, also a member declaring that the said Aaron hath guilty of breach of Covenant, to wit: 'in refusing to partake of the Lord's Supper for Years. The complaintant conceives that the said Brother hath brought dishonor upon his Christian character and given just occasion to all his Christian brethern.'" Resolved that Brother Aaron Knapp be cited to appear at our next regular church meeting." - FTK

The meeting on April 2, 1818: "the said Brother Aaron Knapp was cited to appear at this meeting, but refused attendance. It was known from his conversation to some of the brethern why his conduct had been so inconsistent. The reason he gave was -- on account of officiousness of some brethern manifested in some former case of discipline. From this appearance, he supposed them to be prejudiced against him, and did not act as brethern ought to. From the consideration of our brother's possessing such wrong and mistaken feelings, it was thought prudent that a committee should be appointed and these brethern should be named who our brother, Aaron Knapp, supposed had been prejudiced against him. They, with the committee, James Norton, Ezra Atwater, William Lucas, and Nathan Stone, should have an interview with the said Aaron and endeavor to reconcile all difficulties." - FTK

The meeting on May 1, 1818: "The committee appointed to have an interview with Brother Aaron Knapp in order to converse and reconcile his feelings toward brethern of the church, was present and reported. He being also present, was asked some questions, and by his answers the church manifested satisfaction for his irregular walk and misdemeanors, and he was reinstated in good standing with the church." - FTK

Dismissions from the church: "Jan. 19, 1826 --- Aaron Knapp dismissed to the church in ------"

Aaron Knapp is mentioned in the Homer Town meetings from 1798 to 1808. He was listed consistently during this time as a landowner liable for highway work. Several times he held the office of Pathmaster. - FTK

"The records of the First Religious Society of Homer, organized September 10, 1799, list among the signers Aaron Knapp; and among the members, Stephen Knapp who joined in 1800. Later it gives the baptism of two children of Stephen Knapp on May 1st, 1825.-FTK 16,2054,2061,2811
