James & Elizabaeth Knight
I see you have requested pictures of the tombstones of James & Elizabeth Knight.
My family members married into the Knight family in the 1880s. I have been to the cemetery where James and Elizabeth and six other members of the Knight family are buried. It is on KY 169, also called Keene Pike, in the back of an old house that used to be part of the Almahurst Horse Farm. My friends used to own that house and when I was visiting there one day in 1980, I inquired about the cemetery. My friends said it was a horse cemetery, but when I went to look, I saw it was a family graveyard. I recorded the names and dates there.
The gravemarkers for Elizabeth and James stated:
ELIZABETH F., DAUGHTER OF G. & N. KNIGHT, BORN 30 MAY 1842; DIED 5 JULY 1843 and ELIZABETH, WIFE OF JAMES KNIGHT, BORN 26 JAN 1764; DIED 22 OCT 1854 and JAMES KNIGHT, BORN 9 MAR 1750; DIED 21 OCT 1831.
My friends that used to live there have moved. I will stop buy the house and ask if I can get a photo of the gravemarkers for you.

Amassa Knight
Hello William
Do you have any information on Amassa Knights siblings. Do you know if he had a brother John Augustus Knight?

Eliza (Doutey) Knight
Hi William,

I found 2 out of 3 of your photo requests for Knights in John Aker Knight cemetery. Not bad for a cemetery that is in disgraceful condition. Note the (phonetic?) spelling of Eliza's maiden name on the stone.

Edward I Knight
Hi, William. Can you provide a source document for Edward Knight's middle name? I like to check on sources before making a change other researchers will rely upon. Thanks!

Hi Bill,

I see you submitted more info about Marion (Knight) Batchelder. I am not related, do you want me to transfer her memorial and her husband's memorial to you ?

Where are my "snake boots?"
Bill,
Thank you so much for the transfer of Samuel Sain and his father, Jacob Sain, at Shady Grove Methodist Church Cemetery, Lumpkin County, Georgia.
I realized this morning that he was the younger Samuel Sain, born in Lincoln County, North Carolina in 1843 and died at Camp McDonald, Georgia of "camp fever" during the Civil War (& not the husband of my Magdalena Wehunt (the herbalist, who still spoke mostly German, could tame wild animals, and thus thought of as a witch), but it was still an exciting find.
I have linked Samuel Sain to his father Jacob and his mother, and written a short bio for each. I have also placed the older Samuel Sain (1803-1859) and wife Magadalena in the Shady Grove Cemetery, because I feel that is where they were buried, Samuel for sure.
Seeing that tombstone, makes me want to find my "snake boots," and head to the North Georgia Mountains!
Thanks again,
Rita

Updates on Weaver daughters
Hi William!
I sent over a number of updates for the daughters of Jasper and Minda Weaver. Jasper and Minda are my 2nd great grandparents, and I'm connecting all of their children to them that I have found through my Ancestry account. Leaving breadcrumbs for the next generation so to speak. I thought I'd let you know why those updates were coming to you. Thanks for keeping up with these memorials!
