James M. Knowlton son of John Knowlton and Lois Bemis?

  of 924

In the book, "Palmer families in America" by Horace Wilbur Palmer I find:

Olive Eliza Palmer b. Dec 27 1819 d. Jan 1884 married to James Monroe Knowlton b. 1822
daughter Cecilia Adelaide b. Nov 4 1843 d. 1916
m. Bernard Pitcher Featherly b. 1822 d. 1907
daughter. Dean Knowlton
m. William Bernard Traynor
(william and Dean are my great grandparents)

In this book, Palmer Families in America, it list Olive's parents as John I Palmer and Phebe Titus (da. of Hallet and Mary Olive (miner) Titus)

HOWEVER in Charles Stockings the History and Genealogy of the Knowltons it list's
James Monroe Knowlton b. Nov 16 1821 married Olive Palmer b. 1849 (note dif. birthdate by 30 years for Olive)
moved to Dublin N.H. (from Canada?)
children are listed as:
Mary, b. Nov 18 1849
Helen, b Oct 19 1852

and NO Cecelia Adelaide Knowlton is listed!

In this book, The history and genealogy of The Knolwtons James Monroe's parents are listed as John Knowlton and Lois Bemis.

In the book: The Bemis History and Genealogy by Thomas Walh we find:
Lois Bemis b. April 12, 1791 m. John Knowlton and moves to NY state (from Dublin N.H.)
has 5 children: Thomas, Josiah, Betsy, Eli and Mercy.
NO James Monroe Knowlton??!?!

So I'm looking for something that confirms James Monroe Knowlton and Olive Eliza Palmer are indeed the parents of Cecelia Adelaide Knowlton.

As well as looking for confirmation that John Knowlton and Lois Bemis are the parents of James Monroe Knowlton.

or any other helpful info. Thanks!
