Soso Stories (Some Memories of Hal Knight While Growing Up in Soso)
Soso Stories (Some Memories of Hal Knight While Growing Up in Soso)
Correction made by JB Keys and a comment by him.

Hal told me stories about the renowned Soso baseball teams that started John Knight as the pitcher and Joseph B Keys as the shortstop. JB Keys, Joseph's son, told me recently that when he was in the 8th grade, he challenged his dad, Joseph B Keys, to a race, thinking that there is no way for this old man to beat me. The race ended in a tie, but JB had a newfound respect for his dad's ability/speed since then.

Some Descendants of Miles Knight
Some Descendants of Miles Knight
Comments: On your site is a pdf tree document, “Some Descendants of Miles Knight”, which contains a few errors about the family of Mary Bebe Knight, b.1876, d.1911. Mary was my great grandmother, having married Leonard Edward “Big Edd” Ratcliff. Their first child was William Estus Ratcliff, b.1901, as listed, but the document incorrectly says that Estus married Jewell M Buck Mott, when in fact, he married Virgie Melissa Nobles, my grandmother. Estus and Virgie’s 1st son listed, Clifton Edwin Ratcliff, Sr, is my father. And I am also correctly listed as Clifton’s 3rd child, Joseph M Ratcliff.

As for Jewell M Buck Mott, she was actually born a Ratcliff, Estus’half sister from the 2nd marriage of Leonard Edward Ratcliff to Edna Aultman. Jewell was their first daughter, and she married W.R. “Buck” Mott. Estus did not marry his sister.

Also, the death date of Mary Bebe Knight is listed as 1907, but she died in late January, 1911, a few weeks after the birth of Mary and Big Edd’s 5th child, Burton Ratcliff, b.Jan 6, 1911. Burton was omitted from the document altogether, probably presumed to have been Edna’s son, rather than Mary’s. To further confirm that Mary DID NOT die in 1907, the 1910 Census shows “Mary” still living with Leonard Edward Ratcliff.

Since I don’t know who provided the document, I am hoping you do know and will forward this info to them. All of us listed are Miles Knight descendants (or spouses of Miles’ descendants).

My Ratcliff family tree that includes Miles Knight, my ancestor, and most of the Knights listed in your site’s document, is publicly available at RatcliffFolks.com and utilizes the same TNG genealogy software that your site uses.
