Hicksville, Defiance Co., OH George KNIGHT, age 31, b. OH; foreman saw mill Margaret KNIGHT, wife, age 29, b. OH; father b. PA Charles KNIGHT, son, age 10, b. OH Cora KNIGHT, dau., age 7, b. OH
I am trying to locate a birth record for Cora (Belle) KNIGHT above. If this is the correct Cora I am seeking she went on to become a world renowned concert pianist. Family info. states she was born March 30, 1876 OH. She always referenced Canton as where she grew up, however, this family probably moved. George was supposed to have been the proprietor of a company which manufactured saws in Canton. Cora had a daughter Gladys TANNEHILL who died at ca age 13 in 1915 or thereabouts. I don't know the father.
All of Cora Belle's life seems to be a mystery - above info. came from her and I question if true. If the above Cora listed in the 1880 census was then seven, then Cora would have been 3 years older than she claims.
Who would like to assist me in unraveling this tale? Any further data in Defiance Co.?
