Levi J. Knight ~ Next Generation

Evidence of the life General Levi J. Knight, earliest settler of Ray City, GA,  is well documented in historical archives.  From the Civil War period,  CSA military documents and newspaper clippings tell of the General’s Berrien County Minute Men. Internet and print histories often relate an interesting passage of command upon the General’s resignation:

“1862-Levi J. Knight resigned a commission as major in the Confederate Army. His son, Levi J. Knight Jr., succeeded to his command.”

But who was this Levi J. Knight, Jr.? Does the historical evidence bear out that he was the son of General Levi J. Knight? The Ray City History Blog will devote the next few posts to the examination of this  question.
