I found a family tree for him which stated he died Oct 5, 1965 in Indianapolis. His wife was Clara Anna Kost and she died in Hinsdale, In.in 1966.They had two children Bernice Audra(b 1919) and Everett Dow Knight(b 1922.)
Owner of the tree was Steve Coyne but I dont have an e-mail for him.

I found WWI and WWII draft records for a William Knight born Dec 7, 1883, His wife was Clara in both.They lived in Marion in WWI and Indianapolis in WWII. Is this the right man? Your grandmothers name would have been a great help in locating the right person. About what year were they separated? John William is a very popular name in Indiana! So I could have the wrong one.
