Please note that there are sometimes discrepancies between the burial listings and the family relationships section. Often two or more people did these listings and they didn't always agree or know for certain where everyone fit. Knight cemetery is very small, and if I were to give the dates for the names of all the people added in the FR section and their connections as well, I would be listing everyone, since they are all mostly related to each other. :o) I have only listed those under FERRELL.


This list will give you something to chew on for awhile, I think.

Dear Bryn,

Here are the names you requested. I just wanted to let you know that there
are at least 18 members of the Ferrell family in the Knight Cemetery, so if
you should decide you want them all, I'll be happy to email them, too. The
family relationshop section on page 291 explains how they all fit together.

There are a few more descendants of Catherine Ridder listed in the Bates
section on p. 160. Let me know if you want them as well.
