Hi. Do you know if your family is descended from James KNOTT, b ca 1602? He came to VA abd the George in 1617, a 15 yr old convicted felon. My family (Andrew KNOTTS)was in QA co MD at least as early as 1770. Your Absolom was in WV in abt 1780. Thru DNA testing we match 23 and 24 markers to 25 with Known WV KNOTTS'. So our clans are almost certainly related. Now I'm trying to find a known male descendant of James KNOTT for DNA testing. Bob KNOTTS, PHX, AZ.
