Wesley Knight was a farmer by trade, as was most of the men in that area. Sallie Knight was a quiet, gentle woman, and deeply religious. When the church doors opened, one just knew that Wesley and Sallie Knight would be there with the children. Sometimes traveling by buggy through the slippery mud was a harrowing experience to Sallie and the children, but that wasn't about to stop her. Sallie remembered many tales her mother, Ellen Parker, used to tell her about trading with the Indians for corn or potatoes. One Indian was named "King Brandy," and when he came around the children were always scared, but Ellen would trade for what she needed, and usually ended up with the basket they measured the goods in or the bread board which belonged to King Brandy. Growing up in those days involved many of these unique experiences which children born today can not understand or appreciate.
