John Knowles was born 4 July 1749 in Ballymena, Ahoghill Parish, Antrim County, Ireland according to his American Rev. War Pension application. He lived in PA, VA, and finally in White Co TN where he is buried. I am interested in finding his parents and relatives.

Yes, that is the family. I have extensive records on John's family. I am looking for his ancestors in Ireland. Thanks for answering. Would you like to compare notes on his descendants?

if you believe the website in white county about the geneology paper read at the dedication ceremony of the DAR monument to john w knowles. johns wife was mollie not hannah preston...My family legend says I am descended from Hannah and that mollie was his first wife and her only living child was Issac who had a son named William. This william was the little boy John went riding his big horse all the way to virginia to pick up and bring back when he was orphaned. what I dont understand though if as the DAR speech says mollie was buried beside john in the mt pisgah cemetary did he divorce her when he married Hannah in 1770 in cumberland county PA. If this is the case why was Hannah buried in the Hutson cemetary in Tennessee instead of by her husband. My E mail address is cjsmith@nmia.com.

I am a descendant of the Knowles from Ballymena. I am not sure if the John Knowles that you are speaking of is a relative of mine or not. Did you ever find out information on parents etc. Quite possibly we are related.
My line looks like this:
- James (or John) Knowles (b. abt. 11630) Comwellian Trooper Wife - Unknown
- Patrick Knowles - 2nd wife Catherine McCullough
- John (of the Hillhead)Knowles - wife unknown
- Hugh Knowles (b. abt. 1753)
- John Knowles (b. abt. 1790) - wife Rose Crawford (b 1794)
- William Knowles (b 1833) - wife Polly Mallory (b. 1839)
- John Sheridan Knowles (b. 1872) - wife Ellen Moore (b. 1882)
- Ivan Moore Knowles (b. 1915) - wife Florence (May) Knowles (b. 1915)
- George Vernon Knowles (b. 1936) - wife Beverley Sheepwash (b. 1930)

Looking forward to hearing from you.

I am so glad I came upon your message. I have been seeking information on John W. Knowles, his ancestors and his descendants for yearrs. Could you possibly provide me with additional information? I also have a John K. Knowles, born in the 1860's and I believe his father is descended from this line. Any help is greatly appreciated.
