The last surviving daugher of a Revolutionary soldier, Mrs. Annie Knight Gregory, who last March marked her 100th birthday anniversary died at Williamsport Hospital at 9:20 o'clock Friday morning Dec 17, 1943 of complications following an injury she received in a fall several months ago. A native of Liverpool, Mrs Gregory was the daughter of Captain Richard Knight, who entered the Revolutionary War as a drummer boy. Her father was past 75 years old when she was born to his third wife. The captain earned his rank in the War of 1812.
