Re-searching my family is my avocation, interested in Knight's and Aday's. Welcome corrections or changes to any of my memorials, but please use the edit feature, if you would like a memorial transfered to you, just request it.
I have claimed your photo request for Dan Aday. Our city cemetery is enormous in size but there two data bases for the cemetery - one for Cemetery Records and the other for Burial Markers. I rely heavily on both data bases. I find Dan Aday as being buried in Maple Hill, but his location of burial is unknown. So I went a bit further and looked for anyone with the surname Aday hoping that I would find other relatives and possibly find Dan. I didn't find anything concrete, so my next path was to look in our city new paper obits. I find Don Aday with an obituary in the Huntsville Weekly Democrat, Dated Wednesday, July 7, 1897, Page: 3, Column: 3. I can not help to wonder if Dan/Don are the same persons as the date of the obit and the Find A Grave recorded DOD are very close. I'll wait to hear from you on the above matter before canceling the photo request. Susan Hill
Anna M. Knight Dear Charlie Knight: I am Anna's great granddaughter. A couple of interesting things. Anna's daughters Anna and Mildred are buried in the plot with Charlie and Anna. Also Charlie and Anna must have married sometime after 1920. Anna's youngest child was born in 1917. And I have the 1920 census record which has Anna still listed as married to John Durrigan (my great grandfather). We also have Anna's diaries which she talks about dating Charlie in around 1925. Charlie died about 6 months after Anna and was visiting Anna's oldest daughter, Elizabeth (for the weekend), when she found him dead in bed. Charlie still shared an apartment in Westerly with Anna's son, at the time of his death. Sincerely, Deb Haskins
Could Isadore Allen, widow of C.F. Allen, have remarried and become Isadore Knight Hawley? There are a number of similarities. If they are one and the same, I will be happy to attach a photo to her page.
