Notes for James Knox:

James KNOX, , was born in Ireland, but was of Scotch descent. Coming to America, he settled in Tennessee, bringing with him his wife. Three of his brothers became residents of South Carolina. After a residence covering several years in Tennessee, he removed to Kentucky, and in 1827 settled on Slaven's Prairie, six miles west of Troy, Mo. At the end of four years he went to make his home on a farm near Sugar Creek, and while there was called to the home beyond, about 1846, at the ripe old age of seventy years. He was a noted member of the Masonic order, having taken his degrees in his native land, and religiously he was an old-school Presbyterian. He was the father of eight children: James; Nancy, Mrs. CROUCH; Elizabeth, Mrs. GALLOWAY; Mary, Mrs. Jane WILLIAMS; Mrs. CANNON; Henry; Mathew and Robert. Mathew KNOX, the father of our subject, was born in Tennessee in 1809, and
died in this county in 1874. He was about eighteen years of age when with his father he came to Missouri. St. Louis was only a small French village, and land within six miles of the place was public domains. Young Mathew was married about 1834 to Miss Nancy GALLOWAY, who was born in Virginia in April,1814, and who lived until September, 1886. They had ten children, as follows: Richard, Julia, Elizabeth, William W., Charles, Sarah, Rebecca, John, George and Eugenia. Richard resides about four miles west of Troy; Julia is the wife of Mason DUNN, and is now living in Callaway County, Elizabeth married John COCHRAN, now deceased, and lives near Auburn; Charles resides a short distance west of Troy; Sarah died at the age of twenty-five years; Rebecca married John FORMAN, and lives near Troy; John is a veterinary surgeon of Louisiana, Mo.; George operates the old homestead six miles west of Troy; and Eugenia, Mrs.
NEWLAND, lives southeast of the same village. After his marriage Mathew KNOX rented
part of his fatherís farm for a few years, after which he bought a farm six miles from Troy, and there made his home until his death, which occurred in April, 1874.
