|My family resides in Eastern North Carolina in the counties of Pitt, Beaufort, and Martin primarily. |
At present, the earliest record known of the Knox family in which I am primarily interested is of Asa Knox who married Sarah Elizabeth Whitehurst.
The marriage register in Pitt County show that Asa was born c. 1851 of James and Ethalinda Knox.I know nothing beyond this and am interested in pursuing any information sources.Asa had two brothers, Hosea and John, both older.He had one sister, Mary. Asa Knox married Sarah Elizabeth Whitehurst of whom was born James Daniel Knox.His second marriage was to Mamie Gilbert Williams, daughter of William Seth Williams and Lucy Phillips.
The children from that marriage included Brasco Knox who married Sarah Miranda (Sadie) Harrison of Beaufort County to whom was born Jesse Brasco, John Richard (me), Mildred Paula, and Douglas Clay.
