This is a possibility, the year of birth is off by one year,but the date and location of birth is the same.  Did not find a Neal or Cornelius Knight in the 1900 census, but I am not familiar with NC counties to tell what is near what!   And Neal could even be a middle name.

SJK, Jr was my dad. I think I might have his death cert with some names.  Who's asking?
My name is Franklin Samuel Knight Jr,  grandson of Ashby Earl Knight (1915-1988) who is the son of Samuel John Knight (1894-1962). Who is this and are we kin?
