When John J. Knox was born in 1791 his father, James, was 31 and his mother, Nancy, was 31. He married Sarah A. Curtiss on October 13, 1813, in Augusta, New York. They had one child during their marriage. He died in 1863 at the age of 72.

When Sarah A. Curtiss Knox was born in 1794 her father, David, was 34 and her mother, Lucy, was 34. She married John J. Knox on October 13, 1813, in Augusta, New York. They had one child during their marriage. She died in 1863 at the age of 69 during the American Civil War.

Their son William E. Knox was born in September 1810, the child of John J. Knox and Sarah A. Knox. He died in 1863 at the age of 53. We believe this book was his, as per inscription above. This book lists many family member names and the ceremony and congratulations, all centering around Oneida & Onondaga County NY. A beautiful and original Knox family genealogy piece.
