I am researching my mother's ancestors, and a great aunt, Mary "Grace" O'HAVER, who married Robert Lynn KNIGHT.
Robert was the son of James M. KNIGHT and Louisa Jane LEONARD.
Louisa's parents were Philip K. & Lucinda (GRIDER) LEONARD, who were married in Danville, Illinois in 1864.
Louisa's sisters, Mary Ann and Sarah Elizabeth "Sade" LEONARD married ZIMMERMAN brothers; James Madison and John Barnett ZIMMERMAN.
The Philip and Lucinda (GRIDER) LEONARD family had moved early in their marriage to Dent County, Missouri, near and in the farm communities of Salem, Lake Spring, Lecoma, and Rolla, Missouri.
Often during their marriage, Lucinda would go back to Vermilion county to visit family. Philip died and is buried in the Lake Spring Cemetery, in Dent County, Missouri. Lucinda died and is buried in the Mount Olive Cemetery, in Vermilion County, Illinois. At the time of her death, she was living with her daughter, Sarah ZIMMERMAN, in Penfield, Illinois.
Anyone who is related to these above mentioned families, I would be interested in hearing from you. I am interested very much in the KNIGHT family, as I would like to find out about the family of James M. KNIGHT, and his son, Robert Lynn KNIGHT.
These families lived in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Missouri.
