I would appreciate any information about these three brothers who came to Alachua County before 1832 and lived there with their families. Elias was b. about 1790 and is said to have been a preacher. George lived in Fort Clark when he wrote his will in 1855. He mentioned no wife or child, but left his estate to the children of his nephew, Jeptha Knight, who lived in Alachua County until at least 1872. Britton was in Alachua at least in the 1930s. Some researchers think the brothers were sons of a Zacharia Knight who lived in North and South Carolina. He married Chloe Smart.
I am descended from Jane Harriet Knight b. 1810 who married Lloyd Edmund Dillon in Alachua County in 1842. i am trying to find her parents.
Any information will be very much appreciated
