    Notes for MOSES KNIGHTON:

    Moses lived a long and apparently prosperous life, He lived to be 84 years old in a time when 45 was the usual life span of men. He had two wives and apparently a Black women as a concubine that bore him seven children. His oldest son Alexander was a Judge, one of his daughters Nancy married well and although his other two daughters didn't seem to do as well, they all followed him from South Carolina to Randolph County, Georgia. His youngest son Moses Green is less well known at this time as he seems to have left Randolph Co. around 1870 and little is known of him after that. Alexander and his family moved to Texas about the same time. Nancy and her family moved to Alabama in 1860 and Elizabeth moved there in 1869. Milly is last seen for sure in Terrell county in 1860. It is hard to tell for sure how Moses felt about his Black children but it would appear that he tried to care for them as best he could, when he sold the plantation in 1861. He could have made them free at that time if he had so desired, but he didn't. He seems to have given/sold them his plantation as a last resort after his other children either left or were going to leave. He lived the remainder of his life with Easter and their children as shown by the 1870 census. He died intestate and apparently left no estate of value.
