Miami County, Ohio Genealogical Researchers -- Sponsored by the Computerized Heritage Association


    Samuel G. McKnight, who is justly entitled to be classed with the progressive and substantial agricultural element of Spring Creek township, was born on a farm in Shelby county, Ohio, a son of Joseph McKnight. His father, who was a farmer in Shelby county for some years, immigrated to Miami county in 1867 and spent the rest of an industrious and useful life in the pursuits of the soil here. He was highly respected for his straightforwardness in business matters and his good citizenship. Samuel G. McKnight was a child when brought by his parents to Miami county and his education was acquired in the public schools which he attended during the winter terms, while the summer months were passed in assisting his father on the home place. On reaching his majority, he embarked in operations on his own account, and his life has been devoted uninterruptedly to farming. Mr. McKnight has a well cultivated and splendidly improved property of eighty acres, on which he grows all the standard crops of the locality and raises a good grade of cattle. His citizenship has been of a high order, and during the World war period he demonstrated his loyalty by his support of all war movements. Mr. McKnight is unmarried.
