Knapp, Joseph M.


Joseph M. Knapp was born at Hackensack October 20, 1856. He went to Colorado immediately after his graduation from Columbia College in June 1878, hoping to overcome pulmonary disease, which was apparently making inroads upon his health. He was admitted to the bar and practiced law, residing in Colorado thirteen years. Believing himself restored to permanent health he returned to New Jersey, but not long after he declined and died on May 2, 1895. He was a man of bright intellect, high attainments and fine character.
