A 'Book' on Knifley

2014-02-21 - ACPL, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. If there is a history devoted exclusively to Knifley, we are CM aren't aware of it. Much of the history of the community can be found in chapters of other books - books by Mike Watson, Minnie Rubarts, and in the works of Janice Holt Giles and Henry Giles, among others. Collectively, they are a treasure trove of information, supplemented by CM's 'Knifley' topic, of course. One 'book' worth a few hours perusing and researching on site is the Adair County Genealogy Department's "Community - Knifley" folder, above. It's filled with clippings and photos, like the two above. The one on the right, above, showing three sets of twins in the Little Cake Community from an old Adair County News or Columbia- or Daily Statesman newspapers, and may be misplaced in the folder - at least by Little Caketonians viewpoint. but it's interesting. The twins are Omer and Homer Neat, Earl and Edwin Merritt, and Maxine and Christine Wheat. A handdwritten note suggests the photo was likely made in the early 1920s. The note on the back of the other photo gives names: "Frances Poff, John T. Garmon, Emma Pollard Garmon, and a Mrs. Poff."
