WILLIAM McKNIGHT: IRELAND - PA - KY - IN

WILLIAM McKNIGHT: IRELAND - PA - KY - IN

Posted: 1 Mar 2004 3:25AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: McKNIGHT, ROBERTSON
I have a William McKNIGHT b. 1765 Ireland emigrating about 1772-1773 probably with his parents John and Nancy HAZELIT McKNIGHT. They appear to have settled in Wash. Co., PA where William, married Agnes ROBERTSON, dt. of Thomas and Margaret ROBERTSON, Jan. 1788. They might have migrated to Brooke Co., VA then Mercer Co., KY by 1791 and then later to Washington Co., IN by 1809.

I am particularly interested in which port they entered the country and the name of the ship. I have seen some information that leads me to believe their port was South Carolina about 1772/73. If they entered the country in SC where did they settle first and for how long? How long were they in Washington Co., PA? Mercer Co., KY?

I have gathered information william and his family line as it is my family's history. The information I have tells they settled in PA, the south carolina mcknight was of a different family. William's children moved to KY then to indiana where he met them there after his wife died in VA.

I wonder if their might be a connection my Mcknights? I have nothing to connect them to yours, but the dates seem to sort or coincide. I have a David McKnight born in Ireland in 1764 and wonder if he might be the brother of the McKnight you are researching. If you might have any connection, please let me know. My email is jbka_nissen@yahoo.com.

In my research I have a William B McKnight b: 3-1-1765 in York, PA and married Nancy Agnes Robertson b: 4-3-1766 in York, PA. He was the son of George Alexander McKnight B: 1745 in Chester Co, PA. I have uncovered a story about some McKnights migrating from Ireland and winding up in SC by way of Jamaca/Bermuda area. Does this fit with anything that you have? my email is mjamox@gmail.com

I would like some more information about your William McKnight that went to PA. My McKnights settled in Chester Co, PA after arriving in the Port of Philadelphia and in later years moved to Rowan County, VA which became Rowan Co, NC. The later moved on to IN.
