  • Notes 
    • Joseph Jackson Knox served in the War of 1812 in South Carolina under Capt Jack Montgomery and McWillie's Militia. He was discharged Feb. 26, 1815. He immigrated to Tennessee before 1817 as there is a marriage license for Joseph J. Knox and Margaret Erwin from Roane County on September 11, 1817. Margaret is assumed to have died after giving birth to a son and maybe a daughter.
      He then appears on the 1820 census in Warren County, TN. He marries #2 Harriet Gregory Dennis Nov 10, 1822 in Warren County and then settled in Monroe County, TN. The couple raised a family of 9 children.
      The 1830 Monroe County census shows a male 10-15 and a female 10-15 that cannot be Harriet's children. The boy is thought to be James but the female isn't know.
      Six children remained in the Monroe Co., TN area raising their families. The Joseph and Harriett Gregory Knox's moved to Overton County about 1851/2.
      One son predeceased them: Robert Tate Knox enlisted in the Mexican War Mar 1847 and didn't return. The Army has no discharge information on him, he is assumed lost in the war. One son, John Dennis Knox, served in the Civil War in Tennessee and left about 1870 settling in Arkansas by 1880. One, William Glen Knox, moved to Texas.
