WALTER KNOTT'S MOTHER DIES
Garden Grove, Jan 15- Mrs.Margarete Knott, 88, familiarly known as Mother Knott to the visitors at her son's famed Berry farm at Buena Park, died last night at her home here.
Mrs. Knott came to California in 1868 in a wagon train with her parents when she was 3 years old. The searing trip across the Mojave Desert has been retold countless times in one of the talking exhibits at the western ghost town developed by her son, Walter Knott, himself a noted historian of the early day mining country.
Mrs.Knott had lived in Garden Grove the last 30 years. Her husband, Elgin C.Knott died when the son, Walter and Charles, were young. While Walter followed his mining career and then went into ranching, Charles became an educator, now on the faculty of California Polytechnic College at San Luis Obispo. Mrs.Knott leaves her sister, MrsJ.D.Price of Garden Grove.
