Still looking for S. S. Knotts, She married my widowed grandfather, Henry Jackson Knotts and they maybe had one child about 1905, then Sophronia died in childbirth with twins (who also died) on September 12, 1908.She was age 25. The Pensacola News Journal stated that her remains were shipped to Castleberry Alabama for burial. (Cemetery unknown).
Henry lived most of his life in Crenshaw County Alabama, but moved to Pensacola around 1902 to find work. His first wife died in 1901 and left him 9 children to raise. I was always told that Sophronia helped Henry raise the first brood.
I found some old funeral home records that indicated that Sophronia was born in Louisiana, but I do not know her fathers name.
Sure wish my ancestors had left me more clues. Any information about Sophronia would be appreciated.
