In Reply to: Re: KNIGHT SAW COMPANY,BRUNSWICK,GA by nancy newsom lande of 174

My info has come from a Genforum posting by Peg Hart, a next door neighbor for 22 years. I have been told that Morrell A. Knight owned the Knight Saw Company in Brunswick, GA. After he died his genealogy was donated to the Bryan-Lang Historical Library in Woodbine. I have an email that states he had a son, Bernard Knight. Morrell was married to Nan Paula Sparre. Got this from Maureen Sparre Kostalas, Queensland, Australia, who was a cousin of Nan Paula Sparrre. Maureen says he had a son Bernard Knight.

Another email from James Johnson in 2006, says Morrell A. Knight had a son, Ronald Knight. (see below)

A Genforum Posting from Timothy Nail in November, 2011 says Morrell mother was Minnie Jones Knight and father Samuel Knight. He gave an email address as for contact.

My first contact on Morrell was 2001 from Althea Crews, Brunswick, GA. She said Morrell was her second cousin. Her father was Elliott Henry Knight. She said that Ronald Knight who lived on Community Road was Morrell's brother's child. Her line was Abraham Knight, Elijah Knight, Henry Knight.

This is all I know on the subject. I think I answered the "where did Australia come from?" Maybe there is a clue for something else that you might be able to use.

My answers lie in the Knights of Bulloch County and my dna matches to them.
