February 7, 1879

From Bennington
Died, of lung fever, on January 30th, Richard Knight, Jr. On February 1st, at 5 o'clock a.m., Mrs. Anna Knight, and at 2 o'clock p.m., same day, Mr. John Knight. The latter couple were husband and wife, the parents of the first named. The disease which carried off Mr. and Mrs. Knight was somewhat of the same character as that which proved fatal in Richard's case, combined with old age. Mr. and Mrs. Knight were among the oldest settlers in this part of Kansas, being here almost 20 years. They were warmly attached to each other. The death of their son was much felt by them, the old lady sinking rapidly when informed of it, and on her death Mr. Knight, who up to this illness had always braced himself up against the infirmities of age, surrendered the struggle and quietly passed away a few hours afterwards. They had passed a long life together, and in death they were not separated. Mr. Knight was almost seventy seven years old, and Mrs. Knight almost eighty one. Mr. Richard Knight, Jr., leaves three children orphans, their mother having died about one year since. Richard was buried in the cemetery at this place on Saturday, and his father and mother on Sunday afternoon. A number of our citizens who knew the deceased in Michigan, along with the friends made in Kansas, accompanied the remains to their resting place. Messrs. Daniel and C.D. Struble have charge of the affairs of Mr. Knight, but to the present have not full particulars as to what course will be taken in regard to the disposition of property.
