Timothy Knox b. 1690 Lancaster MA
Help! Anyone searching this line . . . Timothy's father was John, we think, but we don't know where he came from -- probably somewhere in Scotland.
Timothy's son, William, was born 1716, also in Lancaster. Both Timothy and William died in Suncook New Hampshire.
William's son, John III was born February 6, 1750 or 51. He was born and died in Pembroke New Hampshire. I can't even find any of these towns.
Sound familiar to anyone? Gotta clue?

The Genealogical and Family History of the State of Maine sstates that Thomas Knox (sometimes spelled Nocks)was the immigrant.He came from Scotland to Dover, Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1652. A small booklet "Thomas(Nocks)Knox of Dover, N.H. in 1652, and Some of His Descendants" was compiled by W.B.Lapham and published in 1890.
My husband's line descends from that Thomas.

Thomas KNOX: Tommy and Betsy are remembered by some as the
parents of George Knox (great grandfather to Ova Knox) Some say Tommy
was a brother of George both could be true but no one is sure. It is said that
they first settled at Indian Fields in Clark County. George then settled and
lived on South Fork of Red river in Powell county . He married Rebecca
Holmes in 1829. They had 9 children which are named on the family tree.
These names were taken from an old Bible owned by one of Uncle Harve's
grand daughters. George and Rebecca are buried at the old home place.
Uncle Sid (the youngest) lived at the old home place until he died. It then
passed into other hands outside the family.

Re: Irish John and THomas KNOX , IRE to US
I'm searching info on a John Knox b. abt 1820 in Ireland, came to US sometime prior to 1863. Married to Mary (maiden unknown). Mary also born approx 1820 in Ireland. Unknown if Mary and John were married in Ireland or came to US as children or adults.
Shown on 1880 census for Lehigh Co, PA (N. Whitehall township) as age 60 and living in household with daughters (?) Mary age 16 and Elithabeth age 9...(Elizabeth?). Also two borders living in household.
Trying to determine if this Elizabeth Knox is the one who was married to Frederick Angelstein and had several children who grew up in that area. (children: Frederick, Jr; Ralston, Erwin (Irwin?), Letitia, Esther, Norman, William, and Beatrice).
