Daniel Knight source continued
Hi Again Rob, This is a follow on to what I just wrote to you. Apparently, Ken Nichols is a descendant of Samuel Knight. Virginia Burke's parents lived in Samuel Knight's house.
Virginia tells of two books that can be found in the Maine State Library titled: "From Portland and Kittery" and "The King's Highway" by Herbert Jones. They tell about the early life in the Portland area where the Knight families came from Ipswich, Massachussets around 1638.
I have a picture of Samuel Knight's wife, Eliza Ann Knight. If you would like a copy, let me know.

Daniel son of John Knight & Sarah Dunton
Hi Rob, My name is Susan Mecum. Daniel Knight was my 3rd great grandfather. I do have a source for who Daniel Knight's parents were: John Knight and Sarah Dunton.
The source that I have is: "The Knight Genealogy That Settled in Jefferson 1810" by Virginia Burk.
She, too, is a descendant of Daniel Knight. She worked with a man by the name of Ken Nichols who did a lot of research on the Knights in Maine. He spent a lot of time in the Maine State Library researching the Knights. If you would like a copy of the paper that Virginia Burk wrote, I will be happy to email you a copy. Included in her paper, are stories about various Knights. It is,quite, informational. Please, let me know if you would like a copy of this paper.

Freddie Hoyt

Hello Rob,

I am not related to Fred, but I researched him earlier this year while researching his sister, Cynthia Etta (Hoyt) Stickney [1875-1923].

I have them in my "Togus National Cemetery" family "tree" on

I probably have a gravestone photo for him that is on backlog for me to "crunch & crop" to add to his memorial.

Things are pretty hectic these days now that findagrave is searchable on Also, in an economy that sucks it is hard to find time to keep up with other endeavors than staying alive.

I think we are literally putting ourselves into our work on findagrave.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper

RE: Phebe Knight
I do not know who gave it to me. Maybe I should ask for source when someone send an edit. Do you know if this is wrong?Maybe she was married twice. Yes you may use my photos. Thank you for asking.
