  • History of Ray County, Missouri circa 1881
    • "Was born in the county of Mayo, Ireland, May 16, 1817. Came to the United States in 1840, landing at Baltimore. He settled in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, where he lived until 1855, and then removed to Boone county, Kentucky. From Kentucky he came to Missouri, in 1857 or '58, and stopped first in Macon county, where he secured a contract on the Hannibal & St. Joe railroad. He worked on the railroad also in Platte county, and then engaged in building a turnpike road. He came to Vibbard, this county, where he now lives, in 1876. Mr. Knight was married in Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, in 1850, to Miss Catharine Jenkins, a native of Shenandoah county, Virignia, born in 1830. They became the parents of nine children, six of whom are now living: Mary J., born May 16, 1852; William, born December 16, 1853; Ellen, born December 26, 1856; Michael and Amanda, twins, born June 4, 1860; and Annie, born November 11, 1868."
