Dear John;

I have been reading these past postings for some time now with great interest.

My father has done a lot of genealogical research in to our family history.

He dug up some tid bits which I think will be of some interest.

My great great great great grandfather, "____" Knight was one of 4 brothers who immigrated from England during the 18th century, prior to 1785. As passed on from my father's research, this Knight was a captain of a seafaring vessel from Maine who went down with his ship during a storm. This would have been sometime after 1786 because he did have at least one son, George Knight (1785 or 86 - 1864) who also spent an un-specified amount of time on a ship as well. I don't know if he was born there, but George Knight did live for awhile in Penobscot, Maine where he married Amelia Rhodes. While in Maine, George Knight fathered a son, Francis Gilbert Knight (1832 Northport, Maine - 1924 Kingston, Wisconsin). Some time afterward, George packed his wife & kid(s), left Maine, and settled in Schyler county, Illinois engaging in farming. Sometime prior to the out break of the Civil War , George's son, Francis Gilbert Knight moved to Kingston, Wisconsin. Around 1863, Francis joined a Wisconsin company & with the Union Army under General Sherman. Francis married Harriet Jane Knox (of Scottish decent).

Francis fathered a son, Gilbert Alanson Knight (1868-1951) who remained in the Kingston, Wisconsin area.

Gilbert Alanson Knight married Mary Foss (of Norwegian decent), and together they had a son, Charles Francis Knight (1903-1991); my grandfather. Charles F. Knight ran a small lumber yard & hardware store in Dalton, Wisconsin until his death. He had married Alice Lytle (of mixed English, German, & Polish decent), and together they had a son, Alan Philip Knight (1936 - ). Alan Philip Knight (my father) married Theresa Josephine Nadolski (obvious Polish decent). Eventually, they had yours truly, John Jerome Knight (1965 - ).

Sincerely

our side of the knight came into America in 1645. They settled first in Penn. During the Revolutionary War they were on the British side. After the war my Knight ancestor was tried for treason and sent out of the country to Canada.

The first of our family was named Isaac Knight. He was a Quaker in England and a cobbler.

After being in Canada for 100 years and some, my ancestor Joseph Knight came

back into America in 1910. We now are in Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky,

Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Texas, Wyoming, and Florida. And of

course we have a large family in Kingston Canada. In Kingston there is a book

that traces many Knights back to England

Dear John Knight,

My uncle did extensive genealogical work in the late 70's of our family and traced it back to a Richard Knight who was born in England in 1623 and came to Hampton NH in the 1630's where he owned a mill. After the Revolutionary War most ended up on North Hero Island on Lake Champlain in Vermont. There are six John Knights in the family dating back to a son of Richard above, There are three buried in one cemetary on N. Hero Island, There is also a Knight Island and Knight Point State park there.

Dear John,

Thank you for that account, which will help us complete the "John Knight Tree". It is really interesting to see how many different directions the John Knights went, isn't it?

Sincerely,

John Knight

Dear Clayton,

Thanks for the input. So far, we have England, Ireland, Scotland, 4 knights from Germany, and 1% French. We're gonna track that bugger down.

Sincerely,

Hi,

I'm from Bristol England, like Clayton's family. I spent a year in Evansville Indiana and there seem to be a lot of Knights, there too. By pure fluke we stayed in Knight Township.

There they have a plaque which commemorates Isaac Knight (1780-1856). A prominent early settler and Indian fighter in Vandeburgh County, born in Washington Co PA. It says his parents left New Jersey for Henderson Kentucky, so they may have been immigrants, but it does not say where they came from. The memorial was dedicated to the school children of Vandenburgh County by his great great granddaughter Loiuse Fairchild Van Buskirk of Sun City Arizona in 1974.

BTW - This is not from memory, but from a photograph!

Best of luck in the search.

John Philip Knight.

Subject: Re: John Knights

Just got back on line after a month abroad.

Got our line back to a George Knight in Pomeroy/Chester, OH (Census records indicate a NY birth but haven't been able to nail that down) in 1810. family oral history has him being referred to as "The Welshman." So far no luck at the NY puzzle. Two Knight families in Chester in 1810: George Knight's and Benjamin Knight's. Descendent of the latter says the two families were not related, but no hard info o n that. It would seem odd that two Knight families in Chester , OH, a major Ohio River migration/settlement route and a crossroads of a rural village, could have two families of the same name in 1810 and be unrelated.

After the Civil War, my greatfather, Noah Knight and his two brothers and a sister (kids of George) moved to Fort Wayne; brother John moved on to Elk City, NE and died and was buried there. The others stayed in Ft. Wayne.

If interested in more, and if you have any info on any of this line of Knights, let me know. There used to be a Knight family newsletter published out of Texas because of the large number of Knights in the US South. Never made any connections out of it so do not subscribe any more, but I think it's still going.
