A beautiful privately printed book to commemorate the 50th wedding anniversary on October 7, 1863 (they married in 1810) of John J. & Sarah A. Knox, Hardcover. It has an engraving of their homestead inside, and was printed in NYC by Anson D.F. Randolph on 770 Broadway.

A handwritten inscription inside reads: "To Edward from his grandfather JJ Knox, July 4th '64." and also in other handwriting, "To WE Knox, from EC Anderson, son of the above Edward. Insurance 95 Millbrandt NY Home Ins Building." Some pages are loose and unhinged, but it is complete, rare and beautiful.

Found in Public Records:
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 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.

Their son William E. Knox was born in September 1810, the child of John J. and Sarah A. He died in 1863 at the age of 53. We believe this book was his, as per inscription above.

The book lists many family member names and the ceremony and congratulations, all centering around Oneida & Onondaga County NY. A beautiful Knox family piece.

5.5 x 8.5 inches, hardbound, see photos.
