Job R. Knight. The success that crowned the efforts of the gentleman whose name heads our sketch is due to the fact that since settling in this State in a very early day he has strengthened his position as a careful farmer by the best principles of the conscientious and Christian man. His farm, which is located on section 11, New Haven Township, Shiawassee County, is a very fine one, being cultivated to the highest degree. Job Knight was born in Chautauqua County, N.Y., March 24, 1822. His father was Jeremiah Knight, a farmer who was a native of Rhode Island. His natal day was March 28, 1795. After receiving the advantage of a common school education the father of our subject went to Oneida County, N.Y., in 1803 and in 1813 settled on what is known as the Holland Purchase in Chautauqua County, where he remained for twenty-three years. He then went Lake County, Ohio. He remained there several years when he decided to come to Oakland County, Mich., which he did about 1852. In 1855 he came to New Haven where he purchased twenty acres; here his death took place about 1858. He was originally a Methodist in belief, then became a Mormon and finally a Spiritualist. He was a preacher of all these creeds. In politics he was a Whig and on the organization of the Republican party joined its ranks. Mr. Knight was strongly attached to his party but never an office holder. In 1816 the father of our subject was united in marriage to Roba Fisk, a daughter of Hezekiah and Roba (Walker) Fisk, who were natives of Rhode Island. Roba was the eldest of fourteen children, her natal year being 1796. Her father died in 1828, his daughter following him in 1859. Our subject had  very good school advantages and at the age of eighteen began life for himself by renting farms in Cayuga County in which business he continued for several years. His advent into this State was made in 1845 and was because of the severe drought which prevailed in the East. He came hither by way of Fairport to Detroit, where he worked for four months, thence he went back to his home, and getting his family came to Southfield Township, Oakland County, where he remained for one and one-half years. He then removed to Rose Township, same county, where he remained for six years. He there owned fifty acres of land which he traded for eighty acres here in New Haven, coming to this place January 1, 1859. Mr. Knight was obliged to construct a dwelling for his family on short time, for at that period there were neither hotels nor dwelling houses near at hand. He built a shanty 14x20 feet in dimension and there setting up his household gods and goods began the work of clearing his farm. The little home where they first lived had a roof slanting in one direction; the weather was very cold and the warmth from within caused the snow to melt and when the water reached the eaves it form and icy sheet both inside and without the south wall of the cabin. In 1887 Mr. Knight added fifteen acres to his farm and in 1889 five acres more. When our subject first came to this State his nearest neighbor lived a distance of six miles from him. He found his way to the farm by blazed trees. Since settling in this place Mr. Knight has seen many changes, not only in the improvement of the country but in the contour of the land itself. The shanty that he at first built was on a ridge, but the south part of his farm which now is a fertile field in which wave the richest crops was that time a pond where he has seen the water two feet deep and containing plenty of fish. He has cleared about ninety acres of the farm. In 1840 the gentleman of whom we write was married to Mary Morrison, daughter of John and Nancy (Kent) Morrison. They were natives of New York and Nancy was the eldest of three children, the other two being sons. Mr. and Mrs. Knight are the parents of five children: Polly M., Orpha Eudora, Daniel Edson, Emma Lulette and Mary Ellen. Our subject and his wife are members of the Christian Church, of which he is an Elder and Trustee. He is also Treasurer of the Sunday school, of which he has been Superintendent for number of years, at the same time presiding over the Bible class.  Our subject is a Patron of Industry, of which he is Treasurer. Formerly he was a Republican in political preference and under that party was High Commissioner for two terms, Township Clerk and Justice of the Peace. Since 1885 he has been a Prohibitionist, taking an active part in the work and progress of the party. Mr. Knight is one of the most progressive and successful farmers in the township or county. He has a fine residence and good barns and his neighbors assert that he makes more from his farm than any other man in the county with the same number of acres. In the early history of New Haven Township the town meetings and elections were held on the same day. When the first independent or circuit caucus took place it was held in Mr. Knight's sugar-house, only eight persons being present.

Submitter:  Robin K  
Subject:  Re: Knight, RI Horace Knight and Lucy Watton  
Message:  Hello, Rae
I have a copy of the Marriage Registry which I got from RI Historical Society, for the marriage of Horace Knight, Occupation: farmer (from Coventry) and Lucy J Watton (from Cranston) married in Coventry, RI Nov 29, 1863. His parents are listed as Nathan and Polly Knight. Her parents: Peleg and Nicola Walton. Their seems to be a spelling discrepancy of Watton & Walton - don't know if it's just legibility or clerk's mistake or what. My line is from a daughter of Horace and Lucy Knight - Lillie Elnora Knight, who married my GGGrandfather William Walker Whitmarsh. I don't have much info about the Knights, but would be glad to share info. Please reply here or email me at robin_a_k@yahoo.com.
