DAR Magazine Volume 50-51 KNOX According to the History of Pembroke, Wm Knox left Haverhill, Mass in 1733 and settled in Pembroke NH. According to Middlesex deeds at Cambridge Mass. Wm Knox of Haverhill, Mass. husbandman, buys one right in the town of Tuncook, NH, Feb 12 1734. (Tun cook formerly included the present towns of Allentown and Pembroke). Wm Knox and his son David, signed the Ass Test in Allentown Apr 12, 1776, according to NH state papers. William Knox had two sons, David and William Jr. David Knox, my ancestor, according to his tombstone record in Turnbridge Vt was b 1747, and d May 8 a830. About 1770 he m Mary Wood of Broomfield, Mass. She was b. 1752 and d May 1 1812. David and Mary Know had: Eliz, who m Gould Camp; Jacob; Mary; David Jr; William; John; Innom; Nancy; Sally; James; and Cyrus.

David was a farmer He lived in Haverhill, Mass.; Suncook, N. H.; and Tunbridge, VT. His religion was protestant and he belonged to the Baptist denomination. All the records on David and Mary's children in then Montpelier, Vermont (state records have been moved) say they were all born in Tunbridge, VT. According to the write up of the Knox name David and Mary settled in Tunbridge in 1781. Also there is a write up in the Daughters of the American Revolution that David signed the Association Test, of Allenstown, N. H. Montpelier records conflict each other. On the birth record of David they have him born in Tunbridge and on his death record they have him born in Allenstown, N. H.

I have improved the sources on the profile so that other researchers can confirm the veracity of the records of David Knox for themselves. I removed the reference to the possible fraudulent reference in the notes. I hope this helps with any confusion regarding a "fraudulent pedigree".

It's possible that the "Media Resource Bureau" information (published in 1967) that was formerly mentioned in this profile was valid, but chances are good that it was part of a fraudulent pedigree, and that someone will show up and use it to build out this man's family history.
