Jim - I am sending you more info by e-mail but wanted to update my two year old query. I no longer believe that Ura is Uriah's daughter - although she COULD be. Have proof that John, William, Harmon, Thomas, and Enoch are his sons. Uriah's parents are William and Margaret (Jordan) McKnight. Dr. Carmen Finley's site has much data about them.www.rootsweb.com/~cascgs/mcknight/index.htm#TOC
I am still looking for William's wife who was born before 1826 in Ohio. She may have been married to a Mr. Morton before her marriage to William McKNight between 1841 and1845. the birthplace of their daughter, Virginia Elizabeth, (married Samuel Reid Hill) has been listed as many places - but the three times that we think she answered the census taker herself, it is given as LA - but cannot find her ANYWHERE in 1850 census. Just recently received the info from someone else that William died from "a tree fall in CA" - so must be from same source. Do not know how to follow up on that. William is not in 1850 CA census and we know he was dead by Sep 1853. Still looking for his wife after 12 years!!
