  F i
Francisca KNIGHT was born on 24 Sep 1875 in Alachua County, Florida. She died on 8 May 1929 in Leesburg, Lake, Florida.



BIOGRAPHY: The following information is provided by grand daughter, Shirley, and of letters written by her to her son, John. My father has told me that he thought her middle name was Cisco or something that sounded like that. He thought her father's name was John
Knight and that he was a school teacher. She married William Melton Conerly and bore nine children. Sometime early in the 1900's she separated from my grandfather who was living in Hardee County, near the Peace River, and went to work at a hotel in nearby Arcadia. She met and married a man by the name of F.C. Fambrough. Due to the depression, hard times set in upon them, and
according to old letters they moved to Leesburg and tried farming, watermelons, corn and peanuts and such. She also sold her chicken eggs and milk for grocery money. During this time, my father remembers that she had arthritis so bad that when he and his brother George would take her to the Dr. she would cry all the way. During the spring of 1929 she wrote loving letters to her youngest son, John, who was in the Army and stationed in Hawaii. She felt she would never see him again, and felt herself grieving to death. With her pain, hard times and grief, she somehow decided that dying was better than living and ended her own life on May 7, 1929 at about noon time. A notice appeared in the Leesburg newspaper the following day:

MRS. FAMBROUGH COMMITS SUICIDE NEAR WHITNEY
Mrs. Fambrough, age about 50, took strychnine some time around noon on Tuesday and died within an hour afterward. Mrs. Fambrough is said to have shown evidence of being despondent and upon her return from Leesburg Tuesday morning is said to have remarked "that she had attended to all her business in town and had pumped up the tires of the car for the last time". She leaves to mourn her passing her husband and several children besides other near relatives. Those near to her are unable to assign any cause for her act other than that she seemed to be in a despondent frame of mind." Mr. Frambrough notified the children and four were able to attend her funeral; oldest daughter Hattie; sons Lawton, George & Harvey. The other sons and one daughter were all in Akron, Ohio working and couldn't come. According to letters, she was wearing a nice dress, and her casket was gray. The total cost for casket, lot, and burial was $180. The children helped pay expenses. [WFT Vol 22 Tree 0705.ftw]
