George Harold KNIGHT

George Harold Knight, 3 mo. old
George Harold Knight has gone home!

This photo of George Harold KNIGHT was located at an outdoor antiques show in Lower Manhattan, New York.  The photo was taken at the J.T. Locke studio in Claremont, New Hampshire circa Summer of 1891.

I have been able to determine that the young man in the photo, George Harold Knight, was born March 16, 1891 in that town. He was the son of Frank H. Knight (born 1868) and Minnie M. Barrow (born 1865.)  George's father was a native New Hampshiran (New Hampshirite?) who worked at a company that manufactured shoes, and his mother Minnie was French-Canadian.

Later Census records show that George followed in his father's footsteps, so to speak, and as a young man became a clerk at a shoe manufacturing company, perhaps the same one his father worked for.

George married Lillian Pierce (b. 1892) and Census records indicate that George was widowed sometime between 1930 and 1940.  Their daughter Barbara Knight (1917-1992) became the wife of Roger Buffington (1916-1990).
