GEORGE ENOS KNIGHT was born at Mount Savage, Maryland, January 10, 1848. He is the fourth of five children born to Joseph and Mary (Hall) Knight. They were natives of England, and emigrated to Maryland in 1843. His mother died in Ettawa, Ga., to which place the family had removed. They then went to Cumberland Iron Works, Tennessee, and various other places, finally settling in Louisville, where, after being Superintendent of the Iron Works for ten years his father died. George was educated at the Cumberland Iron Works, Tenn. In 1865 he went to the Louisville Iron Works, and remained there under his father’s direction until 1878. His father’s death occurred that year, and he received the honors of the Odd-fellows’ burial at New Concord, Calloway Co., Ky. George remained in Louisville until 1875, when he came to his present place in Christian County, which he had just purchased. He has since engaged in farming and building. On February 16, 1879, he was married to Miss R. J. Shropshire, the oldest daughter of John O. and A. E. Shropshire. Her parents reside at the Tennessee Iron Works, Lyon County, where she was born. They have had one child – George, who died in infancy in 1880. Mrs. Knight is a member of the Christian Church.
