In the 1870 Census of Attala County, MS, enumerated on the 17th of August 1870, you will find the following family record:
Stacy McKnight 62, born in TN (Interpreted on Ancestry as Stoy Mckingt)
Isaac 28, born in MS
W. T. 22, born in MS
M. E. Avance 78, born in SC
Discrepancies between 1860 and 1870 census records of Attala County, MS:
McKnight - Mckingt (due to handwriting of census taker and interpretation of Ancestry)
Ages of Stacy and Elizabeth (M. E.) - More than 10 years.
Place of birth of Stacy - Kentucky or Tennessee
Despite these discrepancies, it is reasonable to assume that this is the same family as the family of Isaac McKnight as shown in the 1860 Census of Attala County, MS.
