In Reply to: Omer David Knight by Dell Knight Brown of 472

1930 Laurens Cty Ga Census; Dist 342
702 Academy Street
92 103 Knight, Omar D,58, widow, salesman, retail hardware
Bateman, John C, son in law, 33, first married at 30
Addeline K, dau, 33, first married at 30

1900 Laurens Cty Ga Census: Dist 341
183 184 Knight, Omer D., Oct 1869, 30 farmer
Nellie D, wife, March 1870, 30, married 6 years, 2 births, 2 living.
Addie, dau, Nov 1896, 5
albert S, Aug 1897, 2
If the date of birth for Omar is correct then he should be on the 1870 census, but he's not.The 1880 census lists him as 9 (1881), which would account for him not being on the 1870 census. You have Oct 1870, which would also account for him not being listed.

1880 Laurens Cty Ga Census: Dist 345
3 3 Knight, Margaret, 44, widowed
Hardy C, 19, son
Florence 12
Omar, son, 9

1870 Laurens Cty, Counted Aug 4, 1870
Knight, M R, female 33
Harris A, 9
Florence, 3
Dixon, R ??, male 24
Cobb, W J, 27, male

Before 1870 is a matter of guess work. There are two Margaret Knights. On April 13, 1858, William A Knight of Laurens Cty married Mrs Margaret R Rawls of Bullock Cty.
This could be them on the 1860 census:
525 570 William A Knight, 28
Margaret R, 25
In Nov of 1870; Margaret R Knight Admx: All those indebted to the esate of William A Knight, deceased, or owed money by the estate, should make immediate payment or present their notes of payment. (you need to find the date of the death; the census was county in Aug of 1870 and there is no husband listed for Margaret on the census)

But there was also a Margaret Knight, age 12 on the 1850 Laurens County Census in household of Green B and Sarah Knight. She is not listed with them on the 1860 census.

Hope this helps
