Hi Ronald. I tried several years ago to reply to your mother Rosemary Powers but her email was no longer active. She was still searching for info on John Knox and Ann Jane Anderson-Hutchinson-Knox, both born Londonderry, Ireland. I have a long Knox genealogy of them from when they immigrated to Quincy, Illinos and then Brunswick, Missouri. I have visited their old farm sites and their grave sites in Bethel Cemetery in Brunswick, MO. I have most of the individual genealogy on the children. I am the great-grandson of John Knox's son William H. Knox who moved his wife and six children to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) in the 1890's. William and his wife are buried in the Rose Hill Cemetery in Oklahoma City.
In my youth I lived very close to the farms of William H. Knox and his first born son, James S. Knox's farm between Edmond, OK (my place of birth) and Yukon, OK. They are my direct ancestors of John and Anna Knox.
The information I have I can send you on a disk if you have Microsoft Word.
I would like to know about Anna Jane Hutchison's marriage to her first husband John Hutchison, father of their son and daughter, how they met, when and where they were married, and what happend to John Hutchison. I have the US Census, Chariton County, records of Anna Jane from the 1870-1920's. Do you know how Anna met John Knox and where?
I have confirmed their marriage by a magistrate at the Quincy, Illinois Circut Court House in 1849, their 1850 US Census Record in Columbus County, their US Census records of 1860, 1870, 1880 in Chariton County, Missouri.
I am still trying to locate the names of John Knox's parents and what county they lived in Londonderry, Ireland and when and from where, when and how they came from Scotland. I have many names of Knox's in Londonderry from the Plantation Period from 1610 to the great famine in 1850's. Once I have John Knox's parents names and Anna Jane Anderson's parent's name I can finish my family genealogy.
My brother and I have located the ship that John Knox and his brother James Knox came from Londonderry to Philideplhia on but we have yet to find any record with the parent's name and nothing on Anna Jane's parents. Do you?
This is part of what I know and what I would like to find out. I hope you can help and we can exchange genealogy. My ultimate hope is to find a photograph of John and Anna Jane.
