          Velma Blanche Knights[1] was born in Athens, Maine and named for her great aunt Velma M. Hersey[2], who had died at age 16. Velma B. Knights was the seventh and youngest child of Andrew Jackson Knights[3] and Blanche Jewett Hersey[4], who were married on March 29, 1907.

 

          Blanche J. Hersey was the oldest child of Walter B. Hersey[5] and Fannie E. Ring[6], who were married on April 7, 1888 in Brewer, Maine. Walter and Fannie Hersey also had two sons: Leroy Stephen Hersey[7], who moved to Rhode Island and Walter Earl or Earl Walter Hersey[8].

 

Fannie E. (Ring) Hersey died at the age of 28, leaving her husband Walter a widower, with three young children, ages 1, 3 and 5.

 

          Fannie E. Ring, orphaned at age 7, as both of her parents also died young. Fannie’s father, Joseph Ring[9] died at age 33 and her mother Marcia E. Clewley[10] at age 28. Joseph and Marcia are buried in Clewleyville Corner Cemetery in Holden, Maine near the Brewer line.

 

          In 1900, after his wife Fannie’s death, Walter B. Hersey has moved to Veazie City, Maine with his three children, Blanche age 11, Leroy S. age 9 and Walter E. age 7. They are living with his widowed mother, Aby [sic] H. Hersey. Walter B. Hersey is employed as an Electrician.

 

          Walter B. Hersey married Mrs. Etta C. Foster[11] on November 11, 1901 in Old Town, Maine. It is a second marriage for both, they were both 36, he widowed, she was divorced. Etta Cora Mann was married to Isaac Foster[12] in about 1886 and they had at least two daughters.

 

          In 1910 The family is still in Veazie and Walter is now employed as a Dynamo Tender at an Electric Plant. Walter and Etta have been married for 8 years according to this record. Etta Hersey is listed as the mother of 3 children, 2 still living. They divorced on April 11, 1914.

 

          On May 6, 1914 in Veazie Walter B. Hersey, age 49 married his third wife Lottie R. Downs[13], age 38. Lottie’s parents, George and Esther Kimball had recently died within a few weeks of each other. Walter B. age 55 and Lottie K. Hersey, age 44 live in Veazie in 1920, with Leroy S. Hersey, age 28.

 

          Walter B. and Lottie K. Hersey, both died before the next Census in 1930. Lottie A. Kimball, Wife of W. B. Hersey is buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Bangor. Walter B. Hersey is in Fairview Cemetery in Veazie with his first wife Fannie E. Ring Hersey.

 

         Etta Cora Hersey married Ernest R. Bodwell[14] on May 9, 1914 in Westchester, New York. Etta is 49 and Ernest is 40 at their wedding. They are both listed as divorced. Etta and Ernest Bodwell would end their marriage before 1930, where she is living in Bangor, divorced.

 

          Cora E. Mann Bodwell is buried in Cedarville Cemetery, but she also has a memorial as Cora E. Bodwell Foster, with her first husband Isaac Foster in the same cemetery. Both are dated 1865-1951.

 

          Velma’s parents, Andrew and Blanche Knights had six other children, five sons and another daughter: the oldest child, Stephen M. Knights[15], named after his grandfather, was born about three months after his parents' wedding; John Knights[16] and Walter Bert Knights[17].

 

          The daughter of Andrew and Blanche, Fannie Abi Knights[18], married a distant cousin, Alva D. Corson[19]. Alva was a descendant of James Tuttle[20] and Patience Corson[21]; Howard E. Knights[22], Robert Leroy Knights[23], who died before age 10 and Velma Blanche Knights.

 

          Velma Blanche Knights, like Emmeline Smart[24] (Chapter 5) was a descendant of James Tuttle and Patience Corson, who had eight children born on Brighton Plantation, Maine: Nathan Tuttle[25], Cynthia Tuttle[26] and James Tuttle, Jr.[27], who all married children of Nathan Berry[28] and Rebecca Noble[29]; Asa Tuttle[30] and Silas Tuttle[31].

 

          The second daughter of James and Patience, Susan Tuttle[32], married Jeremiah Brown[33] and continued with the tradition of intermarrying in the “Happy Hollow”[34] area of West Athens, Maine, ultimately passing down the gene for Bright’s Disease[35] to their son Jeremiah Brown[36], who married Mary Jane Tuttle[37]. You get the idea.

           

          Other children of James and Patience Tuttle: George Washington Tuttle[38], who married Eunice York[39] on April 19, 1839 and had 12 children; the youngest child of James and Patience, Betsy H. Tuttle[40], was the mother of Emeline Smart, subject of Chapter 5.

 

          In 1910 in Athens, Andrew L. Knight [sic] age 31, lives with his mother Patience Knight age 77, his wife Blanche E. Knight age 20 and their two children Stephen M. Knight age 2 and John Knight age 1.

 

          Andrew Knights' mother, Patience Tuttle[41] was first married to Benjamin F. Pennell[42] on December 9, 1857 in Brighton Plantation. According to some records, their daughter, Emma Jane Pennell[43] had been born more than two years before, when Patience was about 16.

 

          In 1850 in nearby Mayfield, Maine, Benj Pennel, born 1836 lives with Danl Hayden, age 69 and Aphia [sic] Hayden, age 61. It appears that Benjamin and his younger siblings, Caroline Pennell, age 11 and Bradford Q. Pennell, age 10 are living with their grandparents.

 

          The 1860 Census in St. Albans, Maine shows a 25-year-old Benj J. Pennel [sic], his wife Patience, age 20 and their daughter Emma J. at age 1. This would place the year of birth for Benjamin Pennell at 1835, Patience Pennell in 1840 and Emma J. Pennell in 1859.

 

          Benjamin J. Pennell, married, born 1834 in Brighton, enlisted there for military service on November 20, 1861 for 3 years in Company D of the 15th Maine Infantry as a Private. He was mustered in at Augusta, Maine on December 10, 1861 and "Deserted" on October 22, 1863 in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is described as 5' 11" tall, with blue eyes, black hair and a light complexion. Benjamin is 27 years old.

 

          Intentions for marriage were filed on July 20, 1872 in Brighton for Andrew J. Tuttle and Emma J. Pennell. They were married that same day. Emma J. Pennell would have been 17 and Andrew Tuttle, 32 at the time. This is a copy of an old marriage and does not list their parents, but Andrew J. Tuttle and Emma Jane Pennell are first cousins.

 

          Andrew J. Tuttle was born in Brighton, the oldest child of George Washington Tuttle and Eunice W. York. Andrew, age 22, lives with his parents and 11 younger brothers and sisters in Brighton in 1860.

 

          On September 12, 1861, at Skowhegan, Maine Andrew J. Tuttle, age 21 enlists in the Union Army during the Civil War. He served in the 14th Maine Infantry, Company C. His service discharge date is February 29, 1864 from the 17th Infantry under Lt. Baily

 

          There is another record for Emma J. Pennel [sic], age 20 who married on June 5, 1877 in Rochester, New Hampshire to 37-year-old Andrew J. Tuttle[44]. On this record, their parents are listed correctly. Did they marry twice, in different places or is the first date wrong?

 

          Emma Jane Pennell next married to George Allen Corson[45] on December 25, 1878. George A. Corson was a first cousin of Emeline Smart, whose grandparents were: Isaac C. Berry[46] and Cynthia Tuttle[47], a sister of Patience Tuttle, Emma J. Pennell’s mother.

 

          Not surprisingly, George A. and Emma J. Corson settled in Athens and have eight children. Their oldest child, Arthur Corson[48] may have actually been the son of Andrew Tuttle. There is no actual record to verify this yet, but dates usually don’t lie, people do.

 

          Four years after the death of her first husband Benjamin Pennell, Patience C. (Tuttle) Pennell married Stephen Knights[49], a "Basket Maker" on June 27, 1869, in Brighton.

 

          Stephen Knights was previously married to Sarah Ann York[50] on April 27, 1845 in Bingham, Maine. They had two daughters, Abigail Knight[51] and Belinda Knight[52]. They live in Brighton in 1850 with daughter Abigail in the household of Jno L. and Sophia Clark. In 1860 Stephen, age 35 is living in Bingham with his daughter Belinda age 8. Sarah Knight, age 50, born 1810 also lives in the house with them.

 

          After the death of his wife Sarah Ann, Stephen Knights enlisted in the Union Army on September 10, 1862 in Company D of the 24th Maine Volunteer Infantry. He was 46 years old. Barely a month later on October 5, 1862 he was admitted to the General Hospital in Augusta with Typhoid Pneumonia and was discharged from service on December 24, 1862. The War Department did not consider him to have been in service, but he has a plaque in York Cemetery in Brighton - "STEPHEN D KNIGHTS - PVT CO H 5 MAINE INF - CIVIL WAR".

 

          The children of Stephen Knights and Patience (Tuttle) Pennell: Belinda Knights[53], named for Stephen and Sarah Ann's youngest child. The second Belinda Knights would die young, before 1880. The only son of Stephen and Patience, Stephen Knights[54], also died young;

 

          Other children of Stephen Knights and Patience (Tuttle) Pennell are: Abbie "Nabby" Knights[55], who married her first cousin, Martin C. Corson[56], both were grandchildren of Issac Berry and Cynthia Tuttle; Patience Jane "Jennie" Knights[57], first married when she was 16 to a 28-year-old Sumner C. Whitman[58] on May 19, 1892 in Brighton.

 

          Jennie and Sumner Whitman had two children: Nelson W. Whitman[59] and Abbie May Whitman[60], who married Fred Almon Ellis[61] on November 9, 1912 in West Athens, Maine. Sumner Whitman was descended from Maria Corson[62] and Elisha Whitman[63], who were married on February 14, 1858 in Brighton.

 

          Patience "Jennie" Whitman married for a third time to Sumner Whitman's younger brother, Horace Whitman[64] on March 25, 1904 in Brighton. The bride was 28, the groom was 21.

 

          I wonder, if the nine-year-old Horace Whitman could even imagine that his older brother Sumner's teenage bride, Jennie would become his wife in about 22 years? It is unclear whom Jennie Knights Whitman married for the second time. Could it possibly have been another Whitman brother? There were at least four of them.

 

          On May 18, 1908, in Bingham, Maine, Sumner Whitman, age 44 marries Edith Cleveland, age 22, both residents of Athens. It is a second marriage for both. She is also known as Edith Avery[65], the daughter of John Avery[66] and Mittie Brown[67], who were married on July 1, 1880 in Athens when John R. Avery was 34 and Mittie Brown was 16.

 

          Mittie Brown is the sister of Rufus Brown, Jr., who is the subject of the “Hard Cider Murder”. John and Mittie Avery are also mentioned.

          Edith B. Whitman, age 31, daughter of John R. Avery and Mittie Burns [sic] marries on September 25, 1918 in Athens to Clever [sic] Corson[68], age 21, the son of Martin Corson and Abbie Knights. Abbie was the daughter of Patience (Tuttle) Pennell Knights. Remember her?

 

          1920 in Athens, Andrew J. Knights age 40, wife Blanche J. age 30, children Stevie Knights age 12, John D. Knights age 10, Walter B. Knights age 8, Fannie A. Knights age 6, Howard E. Knights age 4 are all with Patience Knights age 85, Andrew’s widowed mother.

         

          In 1930, 8-year-old Velma B. Knights lives with her parents Andrew and Blanche Knights, with two older brothers W. Bert Knights, age 19 and Howard E. Knights, age 14. Before the next Census, Velma B. Knights would be hired out as a teenaged servant.

 

          While in the employ of Louisa Smart[69] as a housekeeper, in the summer of 1938, a 16-year-old Velma Knights became pregnant with the child of William Henry Smart Whiting[70]. Their daughter Joyce M. Whiting[71] was born in Athens early the next year.

 

          William H. S. Whiting is the son of Seth O'Dell Whiting[72] and Emeline Smart[73]. William Whiting had been raised by his aunt, Louisa Smart since the death of his mother Emeline (Smart) Whiting in 1921.

 

          In 1930, William H. Whiting is known as William H. Whitney, age 10, "Nephew", living with his aunt Lowizia [sic] Smart, age 47 in Athens.

 

          In the 1940 Census, Velma B. Knights, age 17, "single" is still employed as a housekeeper in the household of Louisa Smart, age 58 in Athens. Also in that household, listed as Louisa’s nephew is William H. S. Whiting, age 20. The one-year old daughter of Velma B. Knights and William H. Whiting, Joyce M. Whiting, is also living there.

 

          On March 17, 1941, more than two years after her daughter Joyce's birth, Velma B. Knights finally married William H. Whiting. Their son William Odell Whiting[74] was born in Athens later that year. William H. S. Whiting is also a descendant of James Tuttle and Patience Corson.

 

          Joyce M. Whiting married on November 1, 1958 to Herbert R. Norman[75]. Joyce F. Norman was a resident of Bucksport, Maine as of September 1, 1996. Her whereabouts are unknown after that.

 

          Velma Blanche (Knights) Whiting died in Skowhegan, Maine and is buried with her husband William Whiting in Mount Rest Cemetery in Athens. She was 73 years old and outlived her husband by 24 years. William Henry Smart Whiting was not quite 52 years old when he died.
