There is an old book (full text available to read online) called 'History of Rowan County, North Carolina, Containing Sketches of Prominent Families and Distinguished Men'. Do a Google search and you should be able to find it. Mention of the Knox's begins on Pg 379)
This book has the grave inscriptions of John and Jean Knox at the Thyatira Churchyard Cemetery as well as pictures.
The inscription reads (Verbatim):

Here the body lys of John Knox
who deceased October Ye 25th, 1758
Aged Fifty Years
Also Here lys the body of Jean Knox his wife
Who Deceased September 18, 1772
Aged Sixty Four Years

The book says that for one hundred and fifty years the stone stood alone but is now (at the time the book was written) fitted into a new one that says (Verbatim):

In Memory of
John Knox
1708-1758
and his Wife Jean Gracy

Also their seven Sons
Soldiers of the American Revolution
William
Samuel

Absalom
