Wordless Wednesday: Are These the Knights?


Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.


Possibly Leanna Jollett Knight and James Mitchell Knight Greene County, Virginia



I wonder if this could be my great-grand aunt Leanna Jollett Knight (1867-1936) and her husband James Mitchell Knight (1866-1942) who lived in Greene County, Virginia.  There are so few pictures of her as a young woman, yet my great grandmother Mary Frances Jollett Davis had pictures of her other brothers and sisters.

  1. I hope you're able to solved this mystery. :)

    I love these old-time photos.

  2. Whoever she was, she certainly looked tall, standing alongside her seated husband.

  3. I wonder what the occasion was for taking this photo. And what was that stack of papers (or is it a book?) next to her hand on the table?

  4. She looks quite stern. And I agree that she looks tall next to her seated husband. Interesting that the man is seated while the woman stands.

  5. Wendy,

    I have forwarded this picture to a Great-Grandson of James & Leanna Knight. He will show this to his dad (grandson of J. & L. Knight). Will let you know if he recognizes the picture.

    Thanks
    Olen

    2. Unfortunately, they say this is not James Mitchell Knight. Sorry, hope you find out the names of these folks.

    3. At least I can eliminate the Knights. Thanks for checking on that for me.
