Bill, I don't know if we have a connection. My Grandfather Joseph Alexander Knowles bn. 1860 Rock Sound had a brother John and Henry. They all emigrated to Key West. His father was named William Knowles and his wife died in childbirth. Her name is unknown. However, it is believed that Joseph Alexander Knowles bn. 1812 at Long Island is the father of William and the Grandfather of Joseph Alexander Knowles, my Grandfather. Confusing isn't it?
