McKnight Reunion - July 4, 1925
Super-Enlarged View

Pictured in this image are children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren of 
William and Mahala (Minerd) McKnight
and Henry and Barbara (Minerd) McKnight of Fayette County, PA. 
Both women were granddaughters of pioneer and Revolutionary War patriot Jacob Minerd Sr. and his wife 
Maria Nein
. Thanks to the diligence of William and Mahala's great-granddaughter, Sara Seddon Dynes, who 
wrote the identities on the back of an envelope, most of the names of this group are known. See the list of names
below the photo. [Note -- be sure to scroll to the right to see the entire image.]
