I have been searching for the birthplace of one Jsse W. Knighten, who I believe was born in VA c 1750, and for the names of his parents. Do you have any information that might help. Jesse lived in VA, NC, KY and MO and is believed to have died in Jefferson Co, MO after 1830. He married at least twice, once in Surry Co, NC and had 6 to 8 children: Sarah, Elizabeth, Jesse, Jr, Ammon, Isaac, Permilia, Emma and possibly Lovell. He also had a brother Lovell.
