Francis P. Knowlton - d 11 May 1871 Marion, Linn Co, IA

Listers,

While looking for someone else in the Marion cemetery, Linn County, Iowa, I found one Francis P. Knowlton (d 11 May 1871) ae 52 yrs 2 mo 25 days.

I am also a Knowlton descendant, and am wondering which Knowlton line Francis came from. If anyone could help me place him in a line, I would most certainly appreciate it.

He apparently had a brother Edward Knowlton who married Abigail Williams, and a brother Robert who never married.

From www.familysearch.org, I find that Edward and Abigail (Williams) Knowlton had a daughter, Ella Lucy Knowlton, who married William Shepherd HALES. Ella Lucy (Knowlton) Hales d 23 nov 1936 Lusk, Niobrara Co, Wyoming.

Here are some census records I found tonight on the various families - can anyone help me determine the lineage of Francis P. Knowlton?
