McKnight Family Genealogy Forum
Nancy Elizabeth McKnight was my great-great grandmother. According to one of my great aunts. She was an only child. Her mother was a DeVaney and married an Indian with the last name of McKnight. I believe that Nancy's mother was Eliza Jane DeVaney, but I don't know this to be absolutly true.
The story I was told was that Nancy's parents moved to Mississippi. Soon afterwards, Nancy's father was hung to death and one of her mother's brothers traveled to Mississippi and brought them both back to Franklin Co., Al. Nancy's mother never remarried and remained in her brother's household for the rest of her life.
If have never seen this written down. It has just been passed down throught the family.
