Comments:
Looking for information about a William (or Joseph, depending on the source) Knight who married a Mary Ann Head. Both were apparently from Paris, Oneida, NY. He was born ~ 1819 and she was born ~ 1815 (if the records can be trusted). Their son, Joseph Knight, who was my second great-grandfather, married a Mary Ratigan (who was from Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin), served in the Civil War and died in 1889 in the VA hospital in Milwaukee, WI.

I’m kind of going nuts here folks, so any help you could provided, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated.

Comments:
I am looking for information on the John A. Knight on the 1850 Iredell Co., NC census. His wife was Matilda. Their children were Rebecca, Bartlet, Julia, Pinkney, and William. On the 1860 Iredell census, their last name is spelled "Wright" and this has caused me a great deal of confusion in my genealogical searching. Also, Rebecca's name is spelled "Wright" on her marriage record to A.L. Williams. Any information on this family would be appreciated. Thanks so much for your time and help.

Comments:
Am looking for info. on my father Celdon or Seldon Earl or Erin Knight. Born about 1882 in Stewart County TN. Was living with an Uncle, William Baily and an Aunt, Frances Lorena Knight Baily at the time of the 1900 census in Calloway Co. KY. His aunt Lorena's father was Francis marion Knight of old Absalom A. Knight extraction out of NC. I found no sons for Francis Marion except for a Berry Knight born about 1850. He disappeared from further censuses after 1860. Was he my father's father? Seems reasonable as he would have been a brother to my father's aunt Lorena but I have no records. my father died in 1952 when I was 9. I was a child of his third wiwf, Lois Brown Wallace. His first wife died after having having 4 boys and a girl. His second marriage ended in divorce with no children. I do know he got in some sort of trouble involving the Mann Act around 1919 or so. Any information at all would be appreciated.

Genealogy Information Louisa Knight marries John Simpson
Comments:
I am looking for the parents of Louisa Knight b. about 1810 in North Carolina. She married John Simpson and lived in Laurens County, South Carolina. She has two children buried with her, William A. and Sarah Jane. I'm trying to connect her back into North Carolina tracing my grgrgrandfather William Simpson. William Simpson was born SC 1812 supposedly in Union County, SC is in 1850 census in Spartanburg County with his wife Elizabeth Snoddy and three children. From reliable sources and work done by Mildred Brownlee, genealogist in SC, John Simpson who married Louisa Knight had brother Peter and William. Peter Simpson died young and the town of Simpsonville, SC is named for him. He was a blacksmith. The William may be my grgrgrandfather. William Simpson was executor of Peter Simpson's will. I do not know Peter's wife's name, but he had three children when he died and his wife and children moved to another southern state. Louisa Knight Simpson died in 1886. In all census records she lists her place of birth as North Carolina. Can anyone help with her father's name?

I am a descendant of Isaac Knight Sr., down through his line. From the New Brunswick Historical Society his grandmother is listed as Elizabeth Shorter, who got a deed from John Test which was one of the first recorded in Philadelphia. Isaac married Mary Carver b. 8/28/1682 and died 1769. I have more info as time goes down. My line goes down through Isaacs son Isaac Jr., then to Joshua Knight b. 1731, Pa who married Sarah Tyson. Joshua and Sarah's daughter Priscilla b. 1766 married Caleb Paul. Thus far there are at least 2 children I've come across...My direct ancestor Hannah Paul (b. 1798 d. 1879) and Mary Paul (b. 1781d. 1868). Hannah married James Stinson in New Brunswick Dec. 15, 1857 and among the 10 children I have listed was my great great grandfather John Knight Stinson b. Oct. 1, 1835/1836 d. March 16, 1899. He married Mary Ann Sexton June 18, 1864 in St. Johns New Bruswick. They had four children : Arthur Abner, Isaac Crosby, Ada Knight, and Mary Ethel (called Ethel, and nicknamed Pet). Ada Knight Stinson b. Feb. 1870 was my great grandmother, she married Charles James Smith Jr. Feb 6, 1897, and I have yet to find her death date, they had 4 children: Harold Edwin, Frederick Arnold Stinson Smith (called Arnold by family, and nicknamed Sunshine), Walter David, and Norman Charles. Frederick Arnold Stinson Smith was my grandfather b. Feb. 23, 1904 in Somerville, MA d. Sept.28, 1963 Winchester Hospital, Winchester, Ma. He was married 3 times. His 3rd marriage resulted in 3 daughters, Barbara Louise, Elaine Ann, and Beverly Jean Smith. He also had one son out of wedlock with Ethel Clinch, Edward Randolph Clinch. My mother is Beverly Jean Smith (McNamara) (b. Dec. 15, 1951). It would seem we are a lost branch on your tree I have more info I just have to finish putting it all together. Hope to hear from someone :)

I'm trying to figure out if Michael Knight B. 1768 in Green Co. PA, D. 1825 in Fairmont, WV is the son of Michael William Knight B. 1740 Baltimore MD, D. 08,Nov 1776 Broad Creek, Hundred, Harford, MD, USA, married to Hanna B 1740 D. 1809, Broad Creek, Hundred, Harford, MD, USA.

I have 3500 people in my tree file, contact me if you would like to compare notes. Most are from Buckhannon, Rock Cave, & Hundred, Fairmont, or Mannington WV. Before WV, they came from Washington & Lancaster PA, and posible from Baltimore before that (unsure). Any info would be helpful. Thank you


If you have any information about these particular Knights in Pennsylvania, I would like to know if they are originally from MD, or if I have mistakenly connected the wrong Knight families together.



Thanks

Erwin is buried in Pleasant Lake, IN and his death certificate indicates that his parents were Aquilla Knight and Lydia Colt.

Acquilla Knight and Elizabeth Williamson information was found on LDS search and James's name was listed and birth year the same that I had so I asume that this must have been his parents. I know the Williamson, Knight, Keeder, Kidder, Wright, Weekley, Widger\Weidger, and ect. are all from Pleasants and Tyler County areas and Ohio. They kept going back and forth across the river.

Sites Relating to Absalom Knight after his service in the Revolutionary War

1780

Much of the iformation we have about Absalom cames from his request for a pension for his service
on the U. S. side of the war. However, records of the South Carolina Royalists show an Absolem
Knight who deserted from their service on 28 April 1781. As Absalom was living in South Carolina at
the start of the war in an area which was a Tory stronghold this may well be the Absolem who later
served in the American cause. The dates do not mesh well, but Absalom wrote his pension request at
the age of 71 and may not have been clear on his dates and prior military service or there may have
been another man of the same name.

1782

Absalom states in his pension request that he entered the army in 1780 or 1781 and served for 12
months and after that time he returned to the place of his birth, Orange County, North Carolina,
married and lived there for about 15 years. This would cover the period up to 1795 or 1796.

1795

During this period he bought property. Land records of Orange County, Hillsborough, North Caroline
show he purchased 260 acres of land on Stagg's Creek for 65 pounds. (Orange Co. Deeds, Book 5,
page 518, December 1795.)

1800

The same land records show that on 25 April 1800 he sold the 260 acres on Stagg's Creek to Robert
Kimbrough for $295. (Orange County Deeds, Book 12, page 326.)

These records would show that he was still living in Orange County in 1800.

In 1993 Emmalou and Paul Runkle visited the area to locate the property on Stagg's Creek. The area
is now Pleasant Grove Township, Allamanse County. Allamanse was formed from Orange County in
1849. Stagg's Creek is shown on an early map flowing into the Haw River. The creek is now the site
of a large dam providing water to the nearby communities. So our hopes of finding the ruins of an old
log cabin or the remains of an old fruit orchard were dashed. The dam site has a large building but
our visit was over a week - end and no one was about. The area lies slightly north and west of
Hillsborough.

Orange County was created in 1752 with Hillsborough as the county seat. It has many early American
homes which date from the 18th century. The Colonial Inn is one of the ten oldest inns in the
United States and Probably the only one in continuous operation. It was built about 1759, on the site
of a tavern. Surely Absalom must have seen the Inn and many of the old homes which are still
standing.

1805

By 1805 Absalom Knight appears on the tax list of Lincoln, Kentucky, paying tax on land in District 1
on Dick's River. In 1807 he is paying taxes on land on Meagre Creek in Lincoln County. James Knight,
our ancestor, states in census records that he was born in Kentucky.

Excerpt from:

Tennessee the Volunteer State 1769 - 1923: Volume 1

WILSON COUNTY

After 1800 immigrants came in constantly increasing numbers.

Robert Jarmon, Lewis Merritt, David Fields, Jonathan Ozment, Dawson

Hancoc, and Seldon Baird on Sinking Creek. Absalom Knight, John Gibson,

Charles Cummings, Henry Mosier, John Merritt, Frank Young, Joseph Stacey,

and Charles Warren on Hurricane Creek.

It would be interesting to vist these areas in Kentucky and to study how he made the trip from
North Carolina. An early record shows that he was a "waggineer" in the war so possibly he and his
family travelled by wagon. He probably did not travel alone but with a party of family and friends.

Absalom is next found in Tennessee. Hale & Merritt in their history of early sittlers in Wilson
County, Tennessee state " On Hurricane Creek, Charles Warren, Joseph Stacey, Frank Young, John
Merritt ( John, probably the son of James, James being the husband of Nancy Merritt), Henry
Mosier, Charles Cummings, John Gibson and Absalom Knight" ( Vol 3 Pg. 840.) We (Emmalou and Paul
Runkle) have visted the area of Hurricane Creek, which is now part of Cedars of Lebannon State
Park, Lebanon, Tenessee. James Madison Knight, son of James, and grandson of Absalom, lived
within the boundaries of what is now park and is buried in the Knight graveyard there. Louise Knight
Kirby, gr-granddaughter of James Madison Knight, was raised on a farm in the area now
encompassed by park. None of this area is accessible by road now - all is covered by state
forests. However, there are guides who will take you through the forest and into the area where the
Knights lived.


1816

Next, Absalom Knight received a grant of land from the state (No. 8883) for 10 acres on 12 March
1816. This land was in District 1 on Smith's Fork, (Book M, Page 726.) Smith's Fork is the first and
principal tributary of the Caney Fork River in Wilson County and named for an early explorer in the
area, Col. James Smith. Stateville, a community on the Fork is located at the juncture of Knight
Creek and Rocky Branch today. Rocky Branch, Clover Creek and Knight Creek come together at
Statesville and form Smith's Fork.

At least one of Absalom's brothers, Thomas Knight, came to Wilson County with him. In 1815
Thomas Knight received a grant of 50 acres of land on Hurricane Creek. Then in 1816 Thomas
received a grant for 50 acres on Smith's Fork. Absalom's grant on Smith Fork in 1816 and Thomas
grant both mention the line of the property of Alexander Ewing so the two brothers settled in the
same area and it is probably for them that Knight Creek received its name.


1820


The 1820 census of Wilson County, Tenessee, shows Absolum (sic) Knight over the age of 45, with
one (1) female over the age of 45, one (1) male under the age of ten and one (1) female under the
age of ten. Son James was married in 1822 after fighting in War of 1812.

The 1820 census show Thomas Night, over 45, and one (1) female over 45. It also shows a young
Absolum Night between the ages of 20- 45. This Absolum is either the son of Absalom Sr. or the son
of Thomas, both brothers had sons by this name. It also shows a John Knight, age between 26 - 46
This could be the son of Asalom Sr.

It is hard to be exact about the children of Absalom as brother named children after brothers and
nephews but these are thought to be the children of Absalom:

Absalom Jr. Born between 1790 and 1794. Absalom Sr. and brother Thomas also had son named
Absalom.

Acquilla Born between 1792 - 1793 in North Carolina. One of his children, Francis Marion Knight,
served in the southern army during the Civil War, the 14th Tennessee Infantry. Some of Acquilla's
descendants were buried in the Futtroll Cemetery, Stewart County, Tennessee, and their bodies were
reburied when the TVA Dam was built in 1947.

James born about 1796 in Kentucky. We are descended from James by way of his son, Green. Mrs.
Louise Knight Kirby is descended from James' son, William, James married Nancy Merritt who was
born in North Carolina and whose grandmother, also a Nancy Merritt, lived to be 101. James served
in the War of 1812 and was wounded in a battle with the Creek Indians. His latter days were spent
in southern Illinois where he lived with his daughter, Elizabeth, and son-in-law, William Absher
(Census records 1880, Cave Township, Franklin County, Illinois.)

Thomas born 1790. He is believed to be son of Absalom; when Absalom drew his pension he lived
in Chalklevel, Benton County, and this Thomas was living in Benton County about the same time. In
1850 Thomas lived in Lafayette County, Mississippi and applied for a land grant for his service in the
War of 1812, stating that he was drafted from Wilson County, Tennessee.

Frances Married John Jones in Wilson County, 1809.

John Married Nancy Knight, daughter of Thomas Knight; She would be John's cousin.

Polly Knight Married in Wilson County, 1816, to Archibald Young.

Elizabeth born 1798 in North Carolina, married 1818, to Wade Knight.

Priscilla Married in Wilson County, 1821, to William Redden.

William J. born 1804, died 1863, (tombstone dates) in Humphreys County, Tennessee.

1836

In 1836 Absalom's post office address was Chalklevel, Benton County, Tennessee. It was there that
he received his $40 per month pension for his military service. He would have been 75 years of age.

1837

In 1837 the Benton Conty land record shows: "Absalom Knight by virtue of the occupant law of said
state enter 39.1 acres of land as his occupant claim in said county, range 7 , Section 1 , beginning 79
poles north of the southeast corner of entry no. ___ for 200 acres in the name of Wilkins
Pinkston...Burroll Beard, locator. Entry Book 115, Benton County. There is no record for Absalom
Knight on the 1840 census of Benton County and it is thought that he must have died before this. In
1845 part of this land was transferred to Pleasant Mullinax. The name Knight does not appear later
in Benton County, Tennessee, records.

Note: This document was authored by Emmalou Knight Runkle and is based upon her personal research
and travels. The name Absalom has a variety of spellings, due perhaps to an inexact literacy of the
time and place, or a reference to different individuals. For the purposes of this computer record the
spelling, Absalom, was settled upon except for those times when it seemed an alternate spelling was
required.

>From the N.C. Genealogaical. Society Journal, November 1985, pg 242:

"23. Knight, Absolom. Certificate of Saml Edmiston, 1 July 1782,

Bacon's Bridge, that Absolom Knight, soldier in the N.C. Line, drove a

public team in the Southern Army from 1 Oct. 1781 - 30 June 1782 at $4

specie per month amounting to $36.

Discharge certificate of Absolem Night, Private in the 1st N.C. Bn in

Capt. Clem Hall's Co., having served 12 mos., dated 1 July 1782, at Camp

near Bacon's Bridge. /s/ H. Murfree LT Col. Comt. NC Line.

Deposition of Absolem Knight before Adams Sanders, J.P., 19 July 1790,

Caswell Co., NC, that he served in the 1st N.C. Line for 12 Mos. and 9

mos as a "Waginner" the same Regiment."

I interpret this that Absolom did serve 12 months.....possibly the first

3 months as an infantry soldier (or some other capacity) and the last 9

months as a wagon driver; all in the same 1st NC battalion. (I would

guess that Joseph Mathews was a "waginner" and when Absolom exchanged

places with him he then became the "waginner".

State of Tennessee

Humphrey County

This 23rd day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and thirty-
three, Absalom Knight, aged seventy one, a resident of said county, personally
appeared before the County Court of Humphrey and being sworn according to law, upon
his oath makes the following declaration for the purpose of obtaining the benefit of an
act of Congress pass the 7th of June 1832. That he was born in Orange County
North Carolina on the 27th of July 1761 as he is informed & believes by his parents.
He has now in his possession a slip of paper upon which his father kept the ages of his
children which correspond with the above statement but has no other record of his
age. After the death of his father he went to live with an uncle in South Carolina in
the district of 96 & lived with him at the time he entered the service of the United
States. In the month of August 1780 or 1781 he volunteered for a tour of five
months but before he entered the service he exchanged places with Joseph Mathews
who had enlisted for a tour of twelve months in the Regular service & he entered the
service in company commanded by Capt. Carter & Lieut. Dudley in the first
Regiment, commanded by Col. Lytle and Maj. Armstrong. He recollects having been
some time at a place called the Round O and the Pond Fronds and also being a
considerable time at Bacons Bridge as he was also during that campaign at the battle
of the Eutaw Spring & was wounded with a bayonet in the left arm. He frequently saw
Genl Green during the battle but does not recollect any other of the Regular Officers
in command on that day. A portion of the twelve months he was ordered to take
charge of a wagon & was employed in hauling forage to the cavalry which was
commanded by Col. Washington before the battle. He served his twelve months and
was discharged near Bacons Bridge & went home. Peace was made by the time he came
home. He rec'd a discharge in writing he thinks was signed by Capt. Carter. He sold
the balance of the pay due him & transferred his discharge. He has no written
evidence by which to prove his services nor does he know of any living witnesses by
whom the same can be proven. After the war he returned to Orange & got married &
lived there about fifteen years & then removed to Lincoln County Kentucky & remained
there about four years. He then removed to Wilson County Tennessee & lived there 21
years & then removed to Humphrey County after remaining one year in Carrol. Thus
ever since lived in Humphrey County. He hereby relinquishes all claim to any pension or
annuity except the present & declares that his name is not on the pension roll of any
agency o any state.

Comments:
(I'm Nell, a.k.a. Memsie's sister!) Our Grandfather was Captain Luck Knight b. Wilson County Tennessee, d. in Big Springs, TX. His father was Samuel Clark Knight who was the son of Thomas H. Knight. We seemed to be at a stand-still.

Since then we found that his father was Robert Knight who's father was Thomas Knight b.sept. 23,1739 Baltimore co. MD and died in 1824 in Wilson co. Tenn. His wife was Sarah Elizabeth Simpson.

I'm looking for anything that would connect him to HIS ancestors and siblings. How they/he went where they went and where they came from. There seems to be so many Ga/AL Knights. Are these branches related or did Thomas' siblings stay in the North and become part of the Northern Knights??

ALSO, Captain Luck had TWO families, I hate to say. That didn't know of the other. Family #1 lived in the Wilson County area. I have info on them but would like to know their Children. His first wife's name was Lily and they had 5 children: Amos, Raymond, Jessie, Bonnie, and Daisy. All I know is that Amos was a farmer and Bonnie's married name was Bell. They were all born LATE 18800's to EARLY 1900's.

Daddy was part of Family #2 that Cap met when he traveled to Chickasaw County Mississippi. They were Clyde, Dempsy, Chevis, Grace, Rose, and Naomi. The two middle ones died as infants. ANYTHING to connect out there would be greatly appreciated!!!

I know for certain from direct communication with his children (he died before I was born) that he was
born: 15 SEP 1876 @ Jasper, Walker, Alabama
married to: Mary Lou WEST on 10 AUG 1899 @ Sims, Montgomery, Arkansas

On the web page
www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/af/family_group_record.asp?familyid=3143418
I found a listing & GEDCOM attributed to
Mary L. CLAYTON of Birmingham, AL indicating BLK's parents to be:
Thomas Marion KNIGHT (b. 1852 in Walker, Alabama) & Octavia MADDOX (b. 1855).

I find this to be highly likely since Thomas Marion is also my father's name and Bryant is listed as having an older brother named Few Mixon, an unusual name also given to my uncle (we've always puzzled at the source).
The same source also lists TMK as the son of:
Abner B. KNIGHT (b. 1830 in South Carolina)
on page
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/af/family_group_record.asp?familyid=10269743
The trail at this source ends with Abner's parents
Charner KNIGHT (b. 1803-1810) & Sarah DAVIS.

Next, I read the message boards on the www.familyhistory.com and found:

I believe that we share common ancestors. I have seen that name on our Laurens County Knight geneology information. Please e-mail me with your e-mail address and maybe we can exchange information.

After even more poking around I found a web site called
Knight's Station
History & Genealogy
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~etknight/Main.htm
run by I'm not sure who with a listing for
Charner H. KNIGHT born 11 JAN 1810 @ Stokes Co, NC
died 18 MAR 1878, Jefferson Co, AL
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~etknight/fam00518.htm
It lists his wife as sarah DAVIS and a son Thomas "Tommie" KNIGHT, and a couple of other wives: Tabitha Eveline (Emaline) FRANKLIN and Caroline CARRINGTON.
However, there is no listing of Abner KNIGHT.
The list does stretch back beyond Charner's cousin parents to end with a
Peter KNIGHT father of John KNIGHT (b. 1680 in North Carolina).

I'm sending this list of what I know to Patsy Clayton, Susan Leverette & the publisher of the Knight's Station web site to try and clear up the details of the Charner KNIGHT issue. I would appreciate any information you have at all. In addition all I know about any of these people are, at most, the birth, death, and marriage dates, and I would like to hear any details you might have. I will continue to poke around myself & will share anything I come across in addition to BLK's line (if you have any interest in that).

I believe that the grandparents are John Knight and Elizabeth Jordan. This is based on information, which I can't document because I can't remember whether I found it or someone gave it to me, that John and Elizabeth Jordan Knight had sons, William, Jordan, Edward, Joel, Peter, Richard and daughters Mary and Sarah Ann. It seems that most mothers gave their maiden name to one of their sons. In this case, Jordan. That argument seems as strong as most to me.

Searching the web for more Knight info. My great grandfather was Porter Knight born 25 September 1822 in Northport, Waldo County, Maine. My grandfather was Francis Porter Knight born June 1, 1862 in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Both my grandfather and great grandfather moved to Kansas. My grandfather was married there. I have not found out when the moved or why as yet. Porter died June 7, 1888 in Clay Center, Kansas. Since Porter was 40 years old when my grandfather was born, I'm certain he must have had siblings. As of yet, I have not found any files with that information. Porter was the son of George W. Knight, Sr. and Lydia Abigail Duncan. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
