This gentleman was pastor of a Presbyterian church there from 1896-1899. I note that there is a John W Knott who ran for Secretary of State in the 1898 election, on the prohibition ticket. He was soundly trounced. Is there a way for me to find out where the candidate John W Knott was from, and whether the two men may be one and the same? I've found some information on line but so far I haven't found anything about the background of the candidates.
Rev. John W Knott of Soda Springs is my great grandfather.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
