I know, I’ve been a bit behind in my updates lately. Yesterday I paid a return visit to cousin Eleanor’s house in Bridgeville to scan some of her family photos. Today’s picture is of our great-grandfather John Knowles, and his family. Wife, Frances Marion Smith Knowles, and their three children, from oldest to youngest, Florence Eliza (Eleanor’s mother), James Warren (our grandfather), and Muriel Eleanor (Aunt Muriel to us kids). I am absolutely tickled to have a photo that links our family to the Victorian period.
From the 1900 census:
Charles M., Jan 1831, Dist. of Columbia; Elvira, Jan 1828, Kentucky Hydesville 105A
Florena E., May 1882, Calif (Dau) Rohnerville 209B
John G., Oct 1855, Maine; Frances M., April 1857, Iowa Rohnerville 209B
So maybe Charles is great-great-grandfather and who dad was named after?
Update: Turns out Charles M. Knowles was not a relative.
