Allen Knight m. Mary Kitchen
Jesse B. Knight (s/o Peter Knight & Ann (Bell)
Jesse children:Allen, Elizabeth "Betsy", Martha, Temperence, Nancy, Peter, Lydia, Jesse B., Edwin, Lewis (And two not yet confirmed are Arthur & Sylvia (Knight)---These two maybe the children of Jesse & Mary.
A story thru the family is the reason Jesse left NC was because he had a mean stepmother. If you check the 1810 census in NC you will see that Mary could not possible be old enough to have been the mother of Allen who it is reported was born in 1790.
Allen KNIGHT m. Mary KITCHEN moved to TN
