Georg Knorp was born August 3, 1803 in Marback-Wurtemberg, near the city of Stuttgart, Germany. He came to the United States as a young man and settled in Missouri, first De Soto and later near Prairie Home. He and his first wife, HAUCK(first name unknown), had two sons, John William and Charles George. Their two sons dropped the second "p" and adopted Knorp as the family name which was used there after.

Georg Knorp and his second wife, Wilhelmina SCHENK from Prussia, had four sons and daughters; Charles, William Fredrick, Henry, John, Mary, Louise, Katherine Caroline and Minnie.

Georg Knorp had a brother, James Conrad Knorpp. James family maintained the double "pp" on the end of the name.

Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
