Addendum: His father was actually Hiram Knickerbocker Boice, so that is correct, but otherwise, as written it doesn't make sense. He is a direct descendent of the NY Knickerbocker family near Albany, as are all people with the name of Knickerbocker in their family. Added by Donna Boice Davenport, granddaughter of Frank C. Boice.
