She was born April 5, 1873 in the state of Alabama and was married to Mr. Knight January 9, 1890. They moved to Texas in 1900, then moved to Oklahoma later. They lived in Bryan County since 1911. Fourteen children were born to them: five girls and four boys who live in this community and five girls deceased. She had suffered a cancer for two years.
