R H L McKNIGHT and R J ACKER 16 Apr 1867 Cherokee Co TX R H L McKNIGHT and S E MALLORY 25 Aug 1878 Cherokee Co TX (Mrs Sarah Elizabeth [Turrentine] Mallory) PER 1900 census, RHL married Mrs Susan Evelyn [English] Corbell about 1891.
Thus unless RHL McKnight married again between Ruthy and Sarah, Ruthy had 3 chn : the oldest being Henry D, then Stonewall Jackson, then Safronia E. born May 1874. Safronia married Thomas B. ENGLISH 08 Aug 1901 in Cherokee Co TX. Thomas was living with her family in 1900 and I have not found Safronia after her marriage. It is Thomas B. English's identity I am researching......
