BIOGRAPHY: The Mystery of Nahum Knight
THE TRAIL OF THE FIRST SON OF JOSEPH SR., AND POLLY KNIGHT CONTINUES TO INTEREST FAMILY HISTORY RESEARCHERS.
Nahum Knight was born on 2 January 1796 in Marlborough, Windham County, Vermont. Mention of this oldest child in the family seems to be excluded from the prolific journal of his younger brother Newel and a shorter history of still another brother, Joseph, Jr. Even his father, Joseph Sr., fails to mention him in his "Reflections" account of the Restoration Period. He is first mentioned on the second page of Newel's journal. as a married son, living near his parents in Colesville, New York, He was part of the Knight clan who were assembled in western New York after being forced out of Vermont due to several severe winters and poor crops. His wife was listed as Thankful and the children mentioned included, William, Joseph, John, Bethany, Sally, Eliza and Newel. He and his family were part of the company of the Colesville Branch who moved to Ohio, but Nahum was not listed among those who were baptized around the time of the organization of the Church in 1830. This exemption occurs at the same time the married spouses of the other children are carefully included. His baptism is listed in the book, "They Are My Friends" as an "unknown date." Nahum and his wife Thankful were included in a list of Colesville Branch who attended the Church organization meeting in 1830 at Fayette, NY (Larry C. Porter, Regional Studies in Latter-day Saints Church History, 1992, pg 154). His family was mentioned with the Knights who were part of the first Mormon settlers to arrived in Jackson Country, Missouri. At that time, the family consisted of "7 or 8" children In the history literature of the family, several accounts are given of offices held by members of the clan; also tasks that were given by Joseph Smith, Jr., and performed by other members of the family. Nahum is not mentioned. In addition, lists of contributions to temples, missions, consecrations, etc., do not include that of Nahum. Census records list a Naham Knight in Clay County in 1840. The recording of names for frontier census takers could easily have been incorrect. For instance, an entry in the 1850 Census of Missouri lists Nahum as Nahum "Night", complete with Thankful and two children, Richard 22 years old and Mary at 17 years. His occupation was listed as wheelwright and his age was 54 which would be correct. His wife's age was listed at 55 years. It seems certain that this Nahum Night is the missing son of Joseph and Polly. The location of the census placed them in Washington Township, Buchanan County. This county is in the northwest corner of Missouri some distance from Clay and Jackson County. By this time, his other children could have grown and left home. No mention is made of his being in Nauvoo, except on page 158 of "They Are My Friends" it indicates that Nahum was included in the ordinances of the family in the Nauvoo Temple from December 1845 to February 1846 before the family all left for the west. However, Nahum history of his crossing the plains is absent from any of the journals or accounts by family members. The 1860 Census for California places him in Diamond Springs, El Dorado County, the heart of the gold rush country. It is assumed then that the family went west from St. Joseph, MO with gold seakers, and the entry consisted of Nahum, a wife and two children, one born in Missouri in 1833 and one born in California, age 7. The last child may have been a grand child. Here is where the trail stops again. His final whereabouts continues to elude us to this date, and fosters speculation as to his location, his relationship with the family and his status in the Church. Lydia Knight, wife of Newel arrived in Utah in October 1850 and later settled in Santa Clara, Utah as a wife of James McClellen. After his death in 1880, she served in the St. George Temple and performed many ordinances for the family. Her records indicate that some of the work for the family of Joseph and Polly was done over again in September of 1877, including Nahum's baptism. This may have been done because Nauvoo records were difficult to verify or find after the trek westward. Joseph Knight, Jr., stood in as proxy for Nahum. The options of speculation leads one to the following possibilities as a result of the small strands of information that are available.
1. The family did not include him in their accounts of migrations and Church affiliations because he was not an active participant, baptized or unbaptized. They might have been saddened by his lack of support of the Prophet Joseph Smith or he might have suffered a possible estrangement after their removal from Missouri.
2. He may have removed himself from the society of the family in Missouri due to intense persecution, and thus settled in Buchanan County about 1850 in order to escape the fate of the persecuted Mormons.
3. He may have been caught up in the gold rush fever and traveled west to California sometime in the 1850s with several families from Missouri.
4. It is doubtful that the references of Naham or Nathan in Church History refers to him, as these accounts include missionary service, being victimized at Hauns Mills and service in the priesthood, etc.
One repeated reference to a “Nahum” Knight is found in Susan Ward Easton's thesis,“Mormon Land Ownership as a Factor in Evaluating the Extent of Mormon Settlements & Influence in Missouri, 1831-1841.”Page 172 is listed which would usually indicate a mention only. However, future examination of this work may reveal something additional of his whereabouts.It is remarkable that the family left us without any mention of him or his family. Normal activities in or out of Church centered events should have included the first born of this early family. The absence of his name must suggest some sort of separation in fact or differences in religious commitment. One must only conclude that it would be helpful to have this last story of a remarkable family completed to record for history. Census entries are 1850 U.S. Federal Census:

Freeborn was one of the twin sons of Garrett DeMille and Magdelana ("Lenah") Eighmay.  He was born March 3, 1795 in Platskill, Ulster County, New York.  He was married to Anna Knight, daughter of Joseph Knight and Polly Peck.  They were married in Colesville, Broom County, New York on March 11, 1819. They embraced the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints soon after the organization of the church and did much to assist the Prophet Joseph Smith, financially, for the Church.  Passing through all of the persecutions of the Saints from the beginning until their exodus to the Rocky Mountains, Freeborn and Anna settled in Manti, Sanpete County, Utah, where they endured many hardships and privations, amidst famine, Indian wars and the disadvantages of subduing the parched desert and converting it into a fertile soil. Here also they finished their faithful career in mortality, after living to enjoy the fruits of their labors in the peaceful land of Zion, and seeing nearly all of their children and many of the grandchildren, honorably married.  Freeborn died January 23, 1881.

OBITUARY: Freeborn DeMill, who died at Manti on the 23rd day of January, 1881, of old age, was the son of Garrett and Delaney DeMill. He was born on the 3rd day of March, in Ulster County, State of New York. On the 11th day of March, 1819, he married Annie Knight, daughter of Joseph Knight. In September, 1830, he baptised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, by Hyrum Smith in Coalsville Branch. On April 21st, 1831, he and his family started for Independence, Jackson County, Missouri, which they reached on the 25th of July of the same year. His name was rendered historical from being one of those who carried the first log for erecting a house in that place. On December 1st, 1833, he moved to Clay County, and in the spring of 1937, he moved to Far West, where he remained till the spring of 1839, when he moved to Quincy, Illinois. In 1842, he reached Nauvoo, where he remained until the exodus of the saints from that place in 1846. He reached Mount Pisgah May 26th of the same year, and in Manti November 5th, of the same year, where he lived until his death, honored by all. He has fought the good fight, he has finished his course, he has kept the faith.

Anna Knight DeMille
Anna Knight was born March 5, 1804, the fourth child of Joseph and Polly Peck Knight, in Halifax, Windham County, Vermont. Brigham Young was born three years earlier, ten miles to the west, and Joseph Smith was born one and one half years after her, seventy miles north.  All three families moved to New York, independently of each other, between 1819 and 1828. The Knights eventually settled in Colesville, New York. Anna married Freeborn DeMille on March 11, 1819 and settled close to her parents, Joseph and Polly, as did her brothers Newel and Nahum and their wives and her sister, Esther and her husband. Other extended members of the Knight and Peck families also lived close by. “The Knight family’s employment of Joseph Smith in late 1826 came six years after Joseph Smith’s First vision, one year before he obtained the golden plates, and three and a half years before he organized the church. Joseph and the several Knights became friends, even before Joseph ever met Oliver Cowdery or the Whitmer family. Joseph’s stay with the Knights ended before mid January 1827 when he and Emma eloped. The newlyweds then moved to Joseph’s parental home in Palmyra. By then some of the Knights had taken a keen interest in his religious experiences and, like him, looked forward to the day when he would obtain the ancient gold plates. (Stand by my Servant Joseph by William g. Hartley, p. 21). Of the Knight and Peck family network, twelve family units embraced Mormonism in 1830 and 1831. Anna was baptized by Oliver Cowdery June 28, 1830 in Colesville, New York, on the same day as Emma Smith and several others of the Knight family.  They had planned the baptism for the day before, but a mob had gathered the night previous and destroyed the dam that had been erected for the baptism. The dam was repaired and they proceeded with the baptism the following day, even though there had been threats of violence made if anyone attempted to be baptized. Those who were baptized were to be confirmed at a meeting that night, but hostile men interfered, and Joseph Smith was arrested on a warrant charging him with disorderly conduct. Because the Knight’s neighbors were so upset and contentious, the confirmations were not held until almost two months later. Freeborn DeMille was not baptized until September. When the Saints moved to Ohio in April of 1831, Anna and Freeborn sold their property and moved with their Children, Mariah, Orpha, Lora Ann and Oliver, along with several other of the Knight families. They were assigned to settle together away from Kirtland, in Thompson, twenty-five miles to the northeast, on land owned by a convert named Leman Copley. He had offered more than seven hundred acres for them to build homes and develop farms, which they immediately set about to do. They were called upon to consecrate their properties and to practice a communal living system. After a conference in June, Copley turned against the faith and was excommunicated. He took back his land, leaving about 100 Mormons evicted. They were instructed by revelation to move onto Missouri, “unto the borders of the Lamanites.” They settled in Jackson county, Missouri. Anna’s mother, Polly Peck Knight, passed away there in August of 1831.
