Birth*say 1803 He was born say 1803 at North Carolina
Marriage*8 December 1825 He married Hester Wilkins at Hancock Co., Georgia, on 8 December 1825.1 
Research note*13 June 2007 The names of all of the Knox children are on the 1850 Census - Mississippi - Pontitoc County. Here is the family at that time, although, they then moved on to Texas, Lavaca County, and eventually to the Halletsville area:

William B. Knox - father born abt 1803 either NC or GA

Hester (Hetty Wilkins) Knox - mother born abt 1807 - GA

They married between 1823 and 1825, in GA.

Their children are:

James - born abt 1829

Avianna - a daughter, born 1830 (married James Byars)

Catherine - born abt 1833she married a Douglass, in TX)

William - born abt 1834

John Hugh - born abt 1836

Amsley - a daughter, born abt. 1835

Elizabeth - born 1838 (MY GREAT-GRANDMOTHER)

Tyrolese - a daughter, born abt 1840

Harrison - a son, born abt 1846. 
Research noteMay 2008 Dwayne,
I was interested to hear that William B. Knox was a founding member of Mount Pisgah Baptist Church in Chambers County, Alabama. That probably means that Francis G. Culpepper was a member of that church as well. I'd bet that over time we could piece together quite a few of the families who were in that colony that went to Texas with Frank Culpepper. There were no Knox's buried in this cemetery, nor in any other recorded cemetery in Chambers. But I do see a number of other familiar names there, possibly some who might have been related to Francis G. Culpepper's wife, Eglantine Langley, such as Rev. War Soldier James Langley and various early Anglins.

Lew,

William B. Knox followed Francis Culpepper from Alabama to Texas. They were both in Chambers County Alabama, both his son John Hugh and Cynthia Jane Culpepper were born in Chambers County. William is on the 1840 census there, (with nine children) and is listed as a founding member of the Mt Pisgah Baptist church there. 
Research noteMay 2008 Knox Cemetery, Sweet Home, Texas
This very old burial ground has been lost. According to Janet Saylor, William Knox brought his family to Texas around 1850, along with the family of his daughter, Martha Hawkins Knox Goode, and her husband, Obadiah. Knox later decided to return to Alabama. However, after selling his land to John Bennett in exchange for twenty slaves, the Civil War started and Knox couldn't get back to Alabama. Family legend says that William Knox's wife, Hetta Wilkins Knox, died in Alabama, but her body was packed in a coffin with charcoal and brought to Texas where she was buried in the Knox Cemetery. There were probably other Knox children buried there, too. Over the years cattle were allowed to roam over the cemetery and it was turned into rubble. Supposedly, the Goode or Knox family erected a large stone at the edge of the property, as a remembrance, but that location is unknown.2
