2 thoughts on “John L. Knighten – Just the Facts

  1. Hello, Jeremy,

    Thank you kindly for posting all of this information on the John Littleton Knighten family. I am now curious to know a couple of facts more. Is Caroline Lacy Gipson Knighten buried next to her husband John L. Knighten? Also, over on FindAGrave, there are two Ebenezer Cemetery near each other. One is a Vinemont listing and one is a West Point listing. Being familiar with this area, I know that Falkville which is located between Cullman and Hartselle is nearer to Vinemont. I have placed a memorial for John L. Knighten on the Ebenezer Cemetery, Vinemont, AL listing. Could you visit http://www.findagrave.com and do a search for Ebenezer Cemetery in Alabama and see if I have Mr. Knighten's memorial in the correct cemetery, or if there is actually a third Ebenezer Cemetery in Falkville, AL?

    I notice that your last name is Blevins. My great grandmother is Florence Eunice “Eunie” Blevins Grantland, daughter of George Washington Blevins and Martha Ellen “Mattie” Outlaw Blevins. I wonder if we are akin.

    I sure appreciate all of your work. Thank you again.

    You take good care now…..

  2. Phyllis,

    Thanks for your comment. I'll send you a more detailed reply to your email, but I want to address these comments here.

    The cemetery is in Falkville. The church is the Ebenezer Freewill Baptist Church, which is apparently a third Ebenezer church in the area. Here is the street address:
    Ebenezer Freewill Baptist Church
    1149 E Lacon Rd
    Falkville, AL 35622-6905

    Regarding the Blevins connection, it's there. George Washington Blevins was the brother of my Great Great Grandfather, William Smith Blevins.
