|Emma ||Curtis W. Knight-George W. Knight confusion|
I believe after comparing the letter, "G" in three areas of the headstone identified as Curtis W. Knight, that this is actually George W. Knight.
Comparison of Facts for George W. Knight/Curtis W. Knight:
A George W. Knight was born in Maryland, shown on the following Census: in 1880 living in Washington, Wapello, Iowa, age 65, 1885 living in Washington, Wapello, Iowa, age 70 and 1895 living in Eldon, Wapello, Iowa,, age 80. On the Iowa, Select Deaths/Burials 1850-1990, a George W. Knight, is listed as married, age 88, born 1815, died 6-10-1903,in Eldon, Iowa. According to an Ancestry Family Tree, a George William Knight, was born in Baltimore County, Maryland, on 8-10-1814, Son of George William Knight 1775-1850 and Leah Unknown. A George W. Knight m. a Martha Watkins in Ottumwa, Wapello, Iowa, on 7-12-1865. Another Iowa, Select Marriages states that a George Knight m. a Martha Miller, and they had a Child, Clara, which might be the same Clara listed in the 1880 FC. in Washington, Wapello, Iowa, with GW and Martha Knight, and Children, Frank L. Clara, and GW Knight. The Ancestry Family Tree gives the Spouses/Children of George William Knight and (First Wife, Maria Miller and six Children, and Second Wife, Lucretia Earson and one Daughter), and Third Wife Martha Watkins Knight and Children, Frank Leslie, Clara Ann, and George William Knight III. The names/dates of the Children of George do not match the Children of Curtis, according to the docs. I've seen. If there's anyone out there, who is a descendant of Curtis W. Knight, and can provide documentation for his Parents, which some Family Trees state were Curtis Franklin Knight and Hannah DAVIESS/DAVIS, I would really appreciate the info!
Curtis W. Knight was born 1814/1815, in Virginia or West Virginia. He is listed as Curtis in the 1856 Iowa, State Census Collection, 1836-1925, living in Charleston, Lee, Iowa with Wife, Martha, and Children, HF/Hannah F., Elizabeth and Mary/Marietta Knight; He is Curtis in the 1860 FC, living in Green, Wapello, Iowa, PO Ottumwa, with Wife, Martha, and Children, Elizabeth M., Marietta, and Friend Knight. He is Curtis in the 1870 FC, living in Montrose, Lee, Iowa, with his Wife, Martha, and Children, Elizabeth, Marietta, Friend, Joseph, Martha, and Ida Knight.

|Cindy Lovell & Steve Hols||RE: Jacob Wittenmyer's|
I don't know if he was in the Civil War. The marker is there, but I've seem markers by the stones of children under the age of 5 years. There was no mention of it on his stone.
Wish I could be of more help.
|Cindy Lovell & Steve Hols||Jacob Wittenmyer's stone|
I just sent you a transcription of Jacob Wittenmyer's stone and my fat fingers got in the way. Please see below.
Sorry for the goof up.

Hi Again - Guess what. I found a document that says he WAS the son of Martha Snavely Nosler - in fact it was a document about her family. They were neighbors with Boston Nosler and she married one of his sons - John. This document also says that Christian was born in 1804 - the 4th child of the couple. I can send it to you via email if you like. Do you have anything showing his date of birth?
I'd never even had Margaret Ann Nosler on my tree, so you've really been helping me get things straight.
Thanks again. - Janet
|Janet Mercurio||RE: PROBATE RECORDS|
Thank you very much for all of this. I'm learning so much about the Noslers in my family. I had a lot of things wrong on my tree. Thanks so much for your help. - Janet
|Janet Mercurio||RE: SUGGESTIONS|
Sorry - I don't see any probate records. Would you please clarify on whose memorials they are? Thanks a lot. - Janet
|Janet Mercurio||James Harvey Nosler # 126488896|
Hi Mary - I just got an email from Find A Grave saying you had a suggestion about this memorial but I can't figure out what the suggestion is. I'm still kind of new to this system, so please help me understand this. Thanks.
And I'm in a quandary about the bio for James Nosler, MD that says his parents were Boston & Sophia Nosler. I don't think that is accurate. I'm still checking as much as I can find on the subject. His mother would have been over 50 if she were his mother. I don't thing that happened.
But I loved reading the bio - so much great info in it. Thank you so much for doing that! It makes me want to see that Wapello History book! Wow!
