Steve, on www.worldconnect.rootsweb.com it lists the children - at least two to follow:
Julia Leola Allen b. 11 Dec 1899 married Oscar Eugene Knight Flora Margaret Allen b. 1 Jun 1902 Canton, Haywood, NC married Samuel Knight
by looking at the Social Security Death Index:
Julia Leola Allen b. 11 Dec 1899 died 15 May 1989 Hazelwood, Haywood, NC
Flora Margaret Allen b. 1 Jun 1902 Canton, Haywood, NC died Jan 1988 Waynesville, Haywood, NC
Samuel Knight b. 10 Jun 1901 d. Feb 1968 Hazelwood, Haywood, NC no proof this is the right Samuel, but would be willing to bet on it!)
there may even we pictures on the gravestones of these people - that is a popular thing to do these days. Also pictures appear in local obituary notices. You might check with the local Haywood library and find out what newspaper would have these obituaries and research through their archives for the obituaries - The obits will list descendants - who will most likely have pictures.I would be willing to bet that some folks still living knew these folks - have school pictures and such - maybe even Church picnic pictures and all like that -
It is amazing what kind of pictures may turn up - "honors...." , "won...." , "retired...." etc.
Also I did a search on Knight surname in Canton, NC under yahoo "people search" and:
Adam Knight 54 Dixon Road, Canton, NC28716 phone: 828 648 5492 came up - Why not send him a postcard and ask if he is kin? The name is too close not to be!
