    Notes:

    Moses Knapp and Jemima Mead were first cousins, both being grandchildren of Caleb Knapp and Hannah Smith.

    Ancestors of the political Romney family:

    Moses Knapp (1709-1787) = Jemima Mead (1708-1766)
    Abraham Knapp (1737-1836) = Martha Comstock (?-?)
    Sarah Knapp (1757-1807) = Charles Robison (1746-1826)
    Charles Robison (1785-1840) = Jerusha Rebecca Kellogg (1785-1836)
    Lewis Seth Robison (1816-1883) = Clarissa Minerva Duzette (1822-1891)
    Charles Edward Robison (1845-1883) = Rosetta Mary Berry (1843-1918)
    Alma Luella Robison (1882-1938) = Harold Arundel LaFount (1880-1952)
    Lenore LaFount (1908-1998) = George Wilcken Romney (1907-1995)

    Moses married Jemima Mead on 25 Nov 1731. Jemima (daughter of Ebenezer Mead and Sarah Knapp) was born about 1708 in Greenwich, Fairfield, Connecticut; died before 1766 in Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Jemima Mead was born about 1708 in Greenwich, Fairfield, Connecticut (daughter of Ebenezer Mead and Sarah Knapp); died before 1766 in Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut.

    Notes:

    New England Families Genealogical and Memorial (citation details below) calls her "Jemima Weed"; this is probably due to the Rev. Elijah B. Huntington's mistranscription in his 6 Apr 1797 Registration of Births, Marriages and Deaths of Stamford Families.

    Although Nicholas Knapp Genealogy doesn't, in its entry for Sarah Knapp, list Jemima among her children with Ebenezer Mead, in its entry for Moses Knapp it calls Jemimah Mead "dau. of Ebenezer Mead and Sarah (Knapp)." Meanwhile, Spencer P. Mead's History and Genealogy of the Mead Family of Fairfield County does in fact list Jemima as a daughter of Ebenezer and Sarah, and records her marriage to Moses Knapp. So Jemima and Moses were first cousins, both grandchildren of Caleb Knapp and Hannah Smith.
