    Possible photo identification error. Photo at the top of the page lists the girl in the front right position as Julia Elizabeth Knight. However the same photo in possession of Elva Allen Mills lists the person as Mary Futch, who married Willie Marion Allen, and is the mother of Elva Allen Mills. Verification requested.

    I am doing some genealogy on my Knight ancestors and need help with any information anyone might have on Jimmie Gullette. She has been referred to also as Jimmie Gardner Gullette. She is the wife of Walter Howard Knight. Any info someone might have as to her parents names, places of birth etc, would be greatly appreciated. I do not have any pictures of her either and would love to see one. Thank you!
