You said that Treavy and William Knox had a son named Frank Knox. My mother was an only child. Since Dovie's uncle's names was R. H.Askew I assume that her mother's maiden name was Askew. Her father's name would have been Sweatt. The court house couldn't find a copy of their marriage certificate but sent me a copy of the register. They wrote Swett in the register and left out the "a". You might check the court house and see if you can find anything more definite. They were married June 23, 1906. My mother was born Feb 25,1908 in Newport, AR. My mother was raised by her grandparents (William James Knox and Minnie McBride Kelley). William Scaife Knox (her father) was in ill health. He died November 27, 1938 and is buried in Maple Grove Cemetery. Greavy "Dovie" left the family when Mom was young and that is why she was raised by her grandparents. Her grandfather, William James Knox was born in Cherokee, AL. He is buried in Blytheville Cemetery.
William James Knox was one of the pioneer makers of fine boots and shoes in the South, who received orders from all over the country for his fine handmade shoes before World War I.
