My records indicate that John Knox and Jeane Gracy had 8 childrem; 7
sons and 1 daughter.
the children's names were:
John Jr. 1739-1802
Samuel Sr. 1746/47-1837
The first three children were born in Ireland, the others in the
American colonies (mostly North Carolina.
General Henry Knox and the George Knox you mentioned were not among the
children of John and Jeane(Gracy) Knox.

>I am part of this line as well. My great gf was George M. Knox (b. 1872), son of John Thomas Knox (b.1838) of Powell Co, Ky, who was the son of George Knox (b.1800) and Rebecca Holmes.
>Can anyone provide the names of the seven sons and one daughter of John Knox and Jean Gracy Knox?? Could one of them have been Henry Knox, the General and Secretary of War under Geo. Washington during the Revolutionary War? Could the George Knox (b.1800) mentioned above be a son of one of the seven sons???
>There are some records that indicate that the John Thomas Knox mentioned above was an assistant surgeon for the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Does anyone have any definite info on that? I have more Knox family info to share to those who might be interested.
