    WILLIAM E. KNOX. If Mr. Knox were stripped of all other virtues, his geniality alone is sufficient to cause him to be esteemed, but with it he can truly be said to be honest, frugal and industrious. He is a son of Ambrose and Mary (Reed) Knox, natives of Kentucky. The former was a generous-hearted man, much esteemed by those who knew him. In politics he was a republican, and for two years he served as assessor. He was married to a Miss Reed, who was a strict

    member of the Christian church and she exemplified her procession by a christian life. Their family consisted of six girls and three boys, viz.--Amilda (deceased); Caroline (deceased); John, William E., Elizabeth, Taylor, Mary, Sarah, Georgean (deceased). The father and mother both departed this life in the same year, 1866. William E. Knox, the subject of this sketch, was born in Bath county, Ky., in 1834. In 1868, he moved to Montgomery county, Ind., there engaging in farming till 1879, when he came to Nebraska and settled on a homestead of one hundred and sixty acres in section 12, township 9, range 17. In 1862, Mr. Knox enlisted in the Fourteenth Kentucky cavalry at Mount Sterling. He was twice taken prisoner by Morgan, and once, when attempting to escape, on his road home he passed a church when the congregation was dispersing; two of them were his neighbor's boys, who were in the Confederate service; they at once captured him and he was marched all day in the rain, and was taken with the measles; as a result, his eyesight is very much impaired, which fact entitles him to a pension. Mr. Knox married, in 1867, Miss Emily Trimble, a native of Montgomery county, Ky. She is the daughter of D. F. and Narcissus (Fox) Trimble, both natives of Kentucky, and zealous members of the Christian church. Mr. Trimble was one of the home guards and in 1866 was killed by bushwhackers. To Mr. and Mrs. Knox have been born five children, viz.--Frank, Oscar, Homer, May and Georgie. Mr. Knox is a republican, but, favors a reduction of the tariff. Mr. and Mrs. Knox are quiet but faithful members of the Christian church.
