South Carolina, USA
Death: Apr. 7, 1927

William Alfred Knight was the son of James R. Knight and Millie Snipes. Although there is no headstone for his gravesite, Church records indicate he is buried next to his fourth and last wife, Sarah Jane Gaddy Hooks Knight.

His first marriage was to Lethia Williams in 1880. Lethia died due to blood clots giving birth to her fourth child, Lilly. Lilly died five months later in August, 1888. Three sons were also born to this marriage… Henry Sheppard Knight (11 Jul 1881-11 Sep 1964) Edward Ben Knight (8 Apr 1884-19 May 1973) and William "Virgil" Knight (28 Feb 1886-4 Jan 1963).

Alfred's 2nd wife was to Almeter Snipes in 1889. One son was born to this marriage, James Eryer Knight (26 Aug 1890-31 Mar 1972). Almeter died in 1891.

Alfred's 3rd wife was to Ellen Mack. They had one son, Jackson Arnold Knight (6 Jan 1893- 31 Oct 1967).

Alfred's 4th wife was to Sarah Jane (Gaddy) Hooks, daughter of Holden and Roseanne Gaddy. They were married 18 Sep 1907 in Union County, North Carolina.

William Alfred was known as a very "dapper" dresser. He was educated in England at a very young age. He later made his living by driving the family carriage... going door to door, selling Bibles and Dictionaries.
