Duh! I forgot to tell you about Isaac Hazard Knowles. All that I have is posted on Ancestry.com, but I will give you a quick summary: He and Eliza married and had two children in Rhode Island, then he got the gold-bug('48 or '49) and went out to California, but ended up a clerk. I don't know exactly when Eliza and the kids,Franklin and Elizabeth, joined him,but the next child wasn't born for 7 yrs. after Elizabeth. There were three more boys born in CA. Ansel was one of them.
