You're very welcome! Just in case! John's parents were James Oliver Knight (15 May 1845 - 23 Feb 1877 findagrave) and Mary Ann Elizabeth (nee: Price) Edington-Knight (4 Sep 1851 - 25 Mar 1923). She died in Smith County, TX. James and Mary wed 22 Mar 1871 in Rusk County. After his death, she wed Robert John Knight on 15 Jan 1880 also in Rusk. 1880 Rusk-Not Stated-075-Image 55 has: Mary "Night"(31), John Edington(8), and Thomas Edington(6). Guessing the enumerator was not paying attention and recorded John's middle name for his younger brother? Anyway, the younger son is clearly Jessie "Eddington"(25) as reflected on 1900 Smith-Tyler Ward 2-District 0096-Image 19. The Knight half-sisters also part of that image. The mom's death certificate filed as Mrs MAE Knight. Her daughters: Millie A. Norris (20 Apr 1884 - 19 Feb 1959), Lillie J. Sandford (20 Apr 1884 - 20 Jul 1963), and Dora Virginia Ludwig (2 May 1887 - 19 Jan 1949). Jesse Oliver Edington (29 Nov 1874 - 18 Aug 1944).
