Nancy Cotney Knight of SC-GA-AL-TX: Date of death!
For those of you who have researched the Moses T. Knight/Nancy Cotney lines, this vital piece of obituary information recently came to light:
"TEXAS CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE, February 18, 1886, p. 7, c. 2
KNIGHT.—Nancy C. Knight, wife of Rev. Moses Knight, was born in Edgefield District, South Carolina, Nov. 24, 1810; professed religion in the State of Georgia in 1832, and joined the Methodist E. Church. She, with husband and children, moved to Texas and settled in this, Smith county, where, with her devoted husband, children and grandchildren, she spent a happy and devoted life. She was the mother of twelve children, all of whom lived to be grown and members of their mother's church. Sister Knight was one of the most devoted women I ever knew. She seemed always composed, quiet and happy. She died in great peace August 1, 1885, and passed from her earthly home to that bright world above. Her aged husband still survives her. He is seventy-seven years old, just waiting for the summons. Ten children and a great many grandchildren, I trust, are on their way to meet ma and grandma in heaven. May it be your happy lots to meet her. C. H. Smith. Tyler, Texas."
