You ask if Francis P Knowlton is son of Levi and Amanda?
He. was b. abt 1818 and is #1353 Stocking and is brother to Levi Whipple Knowlton, b. abt 1803. They are of nine children born to Paul (532 Stocking) Knowlton and Lucy Whipple according to Stocking pg. 111.
Their father Paul (532)Knoulton wa born Oc 25, 1781, son of Paul and Lucy per v.r. of Shrewsbury, Worcester County, Mass. (v.r. pg. 64 - Newcomb and Gauss pub. at Mass. Archives).
This Paul (532) was married to Lucy Whipple per the following entry found on pgs. 97 and 123 of vital records Newcomb and Gauss pub. at Mass. Archives: Paul Knolton (int. Knowlton) of Adams (int. adds Berkshire Co.) and Lucy Whipple ---. (rec. between April 29, 1800 and Apr 19, 1801 ( 1, 1800), New Braintree, Mass.
(New Braintree is in Worcester County, Mass.)
I believe Lucy was born as follows:
Lucy Whipple, d. Francis and w., b. Dec. 27, 1776, New Braintree, Mass. (v.r. pg. 55)

The father Paul (532) is son of Paul (254) who is son of Abraham (237) and Martha Lamson:
Birth: Paul Knowlton, s. Abraham and Martha, April 17, 1736. Shrewsbury, Worc., Ma. (v.r. pg. 66)
his death: Paul Knowlton, Jun 27, 1799, in his 64th year. G.S. Shrewsbury, Mass. (v.r. pg. 263)
His married:
Paul Knowlton and Lucy Forbush of Hardwick, Nov. 8, 1769. In Hardwick. (Shrewsbury v.r. pg. 181)
and Paul Knowlton of Shrewsbury and Lucy Forbush Nov. 8, 1769. Hardwick Ma.v.r. pg. 202 and pg. 121.
Although Francis P. is one of nine children, I could find no birth or baptism records for any of the nine. This could indicate the family was not of the Congregational faith or any other faith that believed in infant baptism. It could also indicate they removed from Shrewsbury to a town that did not protect or keep records for posterity.
Hope this helps
