BIOGRAPHY: Clifton Knight married to Anna Zelasko  
Clifton Knight was my grandfather by adoption. My mother was their eldest daughter, Marie. She was adopted by them either in December of 1922 or the beginning of 1923. My mother is now 94 years old and is quite active although a bit forgetful. I wonder if there is anyone in your family that remembers the story surrounding my mom's adoption. It surprises me that a young couple with, I assume limited resources, would adopt a child. They had only been married a short time and did have their own children later. My mom was in an orphanage in Dorchester Mass when adopted. My mother never had an interest in looking any of this info up and I just recently got some of the paperwork from the time she was adopted but it is just baptismal records and an amended birth certificate. I live in Florida so it is not possible to easily go to the Boston, Mass records to attempt to uncover some of this info. Thanks for any help you may be able to give. Feel free to look over the Obin family tree here in Ancestry to perhaps help to fill in any blanks you may have. Unfortunately, Anna Zelasko Knight's mother, Catherine, was also adopted but she had a very colorful childhood in Russia. Her father was a military spy with the White Russians and she told me stories including him being chased by enemy troops and his horse was hit so when they went down, he smeared himself with the horses blood. The enemy soldiers caught up looked him over, poked him with a bayonet type thing and continued on. When safe, he got up and I guess walked to safety or got picked up by his fellow soldiers. She was a wonderful, sweet woman who was fiercely independent but broke her hip in a fall in her eighties and never recovered.

Anna C. ZELASKO-7317 was born on 3 Aug 1902 in Foxborough, Norfolk, Massachusetts. Anna married Clifton Edward KNIGHT-7315.

They had the following children.

  F i
Maria KNIGHT-7318 was born in 1923 in Saugus, Essex, Massachusetts.
  F ii
Geraldine KNIGHT-7319 was born in 1927 in Saugus, Essex, Massachusetts.
  M iii Arthur C. KNIGHT-20962 was born on 1 Sep 1932. He died on 30 Dec 2007.

Martin Reginald KNIGHT [Parents]-7316 was born on 4 Jan 1900 in Foxborough, Norfolk, Massachusetts. He died on 1 Sep 1983 in Attleborough, Bristol, Massachusetts. He was buried in Morton Chapel Buring Ground, Mansfield, Bristol, Massachusetts. Martin married Grace Eva COOK-19516.

From A. D. 861 to A. D. 1904

Floral Park, New York
1904  Pages 197 - 198

Joel King was the tenth child and fourth son of Samuel and Deborah Greene-King. He was born Nov. 3, 1785, and died Dec. 12, 1867, aged 82. He outlived his wife by thirty years. He married at 24 to his second cousin, Esther Matteson, who was born June 18, 1783. Esther was a sister to Meribah, wife of Joel's brother George. The sisters' double Matteson descent, and also their lineage from John Greene of Quidnessett, is given in Chapter XXVI, pertaining to George King.
Joel King was a favorite in his family. He was frank and generous in is disposition, and of a genial, sunny temperament. His wife is yet remembered as one of the salt of the earth, patient, forbearing, and given to kind words and deeds.
He went to N.Y. in 1806, and lived for a few years with his sister, Mrs. Nancy Nichols. He went back to R.I. after his bride, but spent the rest of his life at Pompey, N.Y. Years after, when some of his own children were grown, he found that the then owner of his brother-in-law's old place was about to plow over the grave of this sister Nancy, with whom he had lived. He moved the remains to his own private burying ground. Then from Mill Creek he chose a smooth stone, dressed it into a slab, and chiseled her name and date of her birth and death thereon. It was a long hard task, but it was done so well that a regular stone cutter might have been proud of it. This incident illustrates his loyalty and devotion to his friends.

Esther MATTESON-8780 was born on 18 Jun 1783 in North Kingston, Washington, Rhode Island. She died in 1837 in New York. Esther married Joel KING-8779 in 1809.
