Shot By His Neighbor
Edward Knight Loses An Arm in a Hunting Accident at East Elba.
Edward Knight, a young farmer residing near East Elba, is minus his right arm below the elbow joint as the result of a rabbit hunt on Thursday. Frank Roach and other neighbors of the young man accompanied him on the expedition and Roach’s gun was accidentally discharged at a distance of about ten feet from Knight, the charge entering his right arm below the elbow, tearing the flesh to pieces and shattering the bones. Dr. Prince of Byron was sent for at once and dressed the wound temporarily. Dr. Townsend of Bergen was summoned yesterday and he amputated the arm about four inches below the elbow joint. Knight, who is about 32 years old, rallied well after the operation and his recovery is only a matter of time. Mr. Knight and his wife had just removed to East Elba for Alexander to care for Mrs. Knight’s mother, who is ill.

Elizabeth WILL [Parents]-10924 was born on 9 Apr 1849 in Elba, Genesee, New York. Elizabeth married Edward H. KNIGHT "Eddie"-3010.

Mrs. O. C. Gates Dead
Mrs. O. C. Gates died Monday, Feb. 26, at the home of her daughter in South Salem township, aged 81 years, 7 months and 26 days. Laura Loomis was born July 30, 1824, in East Hartford, Conn. She married in 1843 to Orson C. Gates who died in 1885. To this union were born eight children four of whom survive – Rev. L. S. Gates, Sholapur, India; Mrs. Ella G. Bell, Springfield, Mass.; Mrs. E. H. Knight, Hartford, Conn.; and Mrs. G. S. Spaulding, of South Salem. Brought up by Christian parents, at an early age she united with the Hartford Congregational church, of which she remained faithful and consistent member until her death. Although confined to her bed during the past six years of her life her utmost endeavor was given to the work of the Master she loved so well. Almost her last conscious words were: “I shall be satisfied when I awake with His likeness.” Funeral services were conducted at the Spaulding home in South Salem by Rev. C. B. Wells, pastor of the Congregational church of Eureka. – Newspapers.com

Avis Knight shows up as a student in the 1909 Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut city directory, living at the same address as her father at 71 Tremont while going to school at 1566 Broad, the School of Religious Pedagory (her fathers school). Her father Edward Hooker Knight is listed on the same page 317

1911
Avis is still living at 71 Tremont, no occupation listed, Marion E. Knight is living at the same address, listed as student, likely she is attending her fathers school.

1914
Avis Knight is shown living at the same address as in 1909, no occupation is shown.
Marion E. Knight is shown as a student no indications of location of school, but seems most likely that she was attending her fathers school at 1566 Broad. Edward Hooker Knight living at same address 71 Tremont and running his school at the same address as in 1909.

1917
Avis Knight still living at the same address with no other info. Marion E. Knight still living at 71 Tremont and listed as student, again pretty save to assume she is attending her fathers school.

OBITUARY: Harold, a son of Willis Huntington Brow and Louisa Adelaide Wade, went on active duty as a member of the Rhode Island Militia in 1917, the day World War I was declared. Following ground school training at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the fall of 1917, he reported to the Pensacola Naval Air Station in January 1918 for flight training. Brow served as a flight instructor in Pensacola and at the Naval Air Station in Miami. In 1923 he established the first world speed record for the U.S. Navy at Mitchell Field, Long Island, in a Curtiss racing plane. For this he holds the Diplome de Record issued by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale in Paris. He was one of the earliest carrier pilots, serving on the first carrier, the USS Langley, on which he made the first night carrier landing. Following carrier duty he commanded the VP-r Patrol Squadron at Pearl Harbor and later served as Wing Commander of the Cruiser Scouting Squadrons in the Battle Fleet. In 1947, he retired from the U.S. Navy as a commander and lived in Pensacola, Florida, from that time. He died at age 87 and was buried with military honors at Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola.
