In Reply to: KNIGHTENS who fought for the Confederacy. by Peggy of 727

My mother;s paternal grandfather was Samuel Ewing Knighton. Sam was born in S.Carolina on Oct 11,1826.
Prior to the war he lived on a farm near the Randolph/Stewart County line about 5 miles from Benevolence, Ga. He enlisted as a private Sept. 22, 1863 in Company I, 21st Ga Vol Infantry Wounded near Washington, D.C. July 18, 1864. Absent, wounded, Aug. 31, 1864. No later record. He survived and died Dec 28, 1901. He is buried at the Benevolence Cemetery, Benevolence, Ga beside his wife Missouri Lewis Knighton.
He spelled his name Knighton not Knighten.
(This is an excerpt from a program I gave to The Sons of Confederated Vets a while back.)
