BIOGRAPHY: The Watertown Re-Union, Wednesday, May 9, 1894
Quite a few of the friends of Miss Mary Knight gave her a surprise party a few evenings ago and presented her with a fine oak upholstered rocking chair, showing their appreciation of her services as organist at their church on Wells Island.

The Watertown Re-Union, Wednesday, October 27, 1897
Miss Mary E. Knight, who has been an invalid with spinal and other troubles for some time, is slowly improving in health and strength and is able to walk out some. Her many friends hope that she may fully recover, for she has been a long and patient sufferer. It seems to bad to see a young lady of her age (22 years) so afflicted. She has borne if with Christian fortitude and now feels quite hopeful of regaining her health once more.
