Trying to connect William Mcknight to other Mcknights from Rowan North Carolina.

+5 votes

I found him here in this book called History of North Carolina by special staff of writers on page 316. he's also in  this census http://"United States Census, 1850," database with images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 25 May 2016), William Mcknight, Guilford county, Guilford, North Carolina, United States; citing family 815, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.). No idea who William's parents are but his wife's maiden name is Albright first name is unknown.  William Was born about 1807 when my ancestor had already left for missouri however I suspect William is either a brother or 1st cousins of my ancestors descendant. William Mcknight's only son was Jon according to that book I linked if that helps. I would probably only need Williams father to connect him with the other Rowans thank you.
