Notes for Frederick Major Paull Knott:

Frederick Knott, Playwright, Dies at 86, December 20, 2002, By DOUGLAS MARTIN, New York Times

Frederick Knott, a notoriously unprolific playwright who scored big when he did write - with his 1952 Broadway hit "Dial M for Murder" and later with the 1966 thriller "Wait Until Dark" - died on Tuesday in his Manhattan apartment.  He was 86.  "He hated writing," his wife, Ann Hillary Knott, said. That is perhaps understandable. The clever, complicated "Dial M for Murder" was turned down by seven London  producers before being accepted as a television drama by the British Broadcasting Corporation. Mrs. Knott said that he became so discouraged that he almost tore up the script.  Making matters worse, he signed away the movie rights for a paltry £1,000 after the television production. Though he wrote the screen version for Alfred Hitchcock in 1954, he thus made far less money than he might have. When the picture was remade in 1998 as "A Perfect Murder," he received credit for writing the play, but no payment, Mrs. Knott said.  But he made enough with just three plays to live comfortably and that was his sole objective. "He wrote only for money," his wife said.  "Dial M for Murder" was translated into two dozen languages and is still performed by professional and amateurs around the world. "Wait Until Dark" was a Broadway hit and then a successful movie with Audrey Hepburn in 1967. He also wrote "Write Me a Murder" in 1961.

Frederick Major Paull Knott was born in in Hankow, China, on Aug. 28, 1916. His parents were Quaker missionaries who sent him back to England for his education. He graduated from Cambridge University in 1938 and served in the Royal Artillery from 1939 to 1946.  He then retreated to a cottage next to his parents' home in Sussex to struggle with a play he had already imagined. His inspiration was the bang of a gun going off, he said in an interview with The New York Times in 1961. He imagined the bang in an old, very oak-paneled English house that had seen better days.  He worked for 18 months straight; he stayed in his bathrobe and his mother left meals by the door. He emerged with "Dial M for Murder."  Then the struggle really began. A succession of producers rejected the play, with one calling it trivial. His wife

read aloud a letter from the producer August MacLeod, who complimented the "ingenious little plot," but said that "the play as a whole would cause little interest."  But then the BBC offered to use it as a 90-minute television play early in 1952. It got rave reviews. He sold the film rights to a London movie company headed by Sir Alexander Korda.  Then James Sherwood, a stage producer with a lease on a London theater, had to cancel the production of a play and asked to produce "Dial M for Murder." After less than three weeks' rehearsal, it opened to critical acclaim.  The excitement in the plot does not arise from trying to solve a murder. The theatergoer knows who committed it and how it was executed. Rather, the tension grows from the attempts of Scotland Yard to break down the culprit's seemingly perfect alibi so that an innocent party can be saved from execution.  Maurice Evans, the actor, saw the London production and offered to star in the show on Broadway. That plan was almost scuttled by the film deal, according to The Encyclopedia of Mystery and Detection. Sir Alexander had a clause barring any future live productions until after the movie came out. That snag was worked out, and "Dial M" began its run of 552 performances in October 1952 at the Plymouth Theater.  In the next five years, the play was produced in 30 countries. It is still a standard of summer stock and school productions.  Mr. Knott then worked closely with Hitchcock on writing the screenplay, though Mrs. Knott said that he was paid just his expenses. Sir Alexander had received $175,000 from Paramount for the rights to the 1954 movie.  His next play, "Write Me a Murder," opened at the Belasco Theater in October 1961 and ran for 196 performances.  His final play, "Wait Until Dark," opened in February 1966 at the Barrymore Theater and ran for 11 months on Broadway and two years in London. Its Broadway star, Lee Remick, was nominated for a Tony Award as best actress.  The movie rights were sold to Paramount before the Broadway opening for what was then a record for such a deal.  Mr. Knott again received nothing, his wife said.

Along with Mrs. Knott, Mr. Knott's survivors include a son, Dr. Anthony Frederick Knott of Kayenta, Ariz., and two grandsons.

S. Army where he attained the rank of Captain, Bill returned to TTU, where he completed pre-medicine requirements and ultimately graduated from the UT College of Medicine in Memphis in 1961.  After an internship in Nashville, TN, he began a general practice in Cookeville.  He was the team physician for the Tennessee Tech football team from 1962 until his death.  In 1978, TTU honored him with the Distinguished Alumni Award.  He served as Chief of Staff and as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Cookeville General Hospital and as President of the Putnam County and Upper Cumberland Medical Societies.  His honors also include 1978 Cookeville Jaycees Humanitarian of the Year, a 1984 induction into the TTU Sports Hall of Fame and a 1992 William C. FRANCIS Day at TTU, where the Athletic Training Room in Tucker Stadium was named after him, 1995 winner of the Fred H. Robertson Award for outstanding service at Cookeville General, and in 1997, Cookeville Regional Medical Center's Professional Office Building was named in his honor.  At the time of his death 13 October 1996 in Cookeville, he had an active medical practice of over 5,000 patients.

It is not claimed here that Bell County ever produced an orator of the first rank, but probably Russ Hill, formerly of Middlesborough, came nearer this rank than any other man who ever lived or was reared in the county. Hill taught a Sunday School in Middlesborough for years to overflowing crowds. He is now in demand, on a national scale, as an orator.  (Fuson's History of Bell County, Kentucky, Volume 2)

Her death had been expected momentarily the last few days.  A native of Harlan County, she was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Ball.

Bailey, physician-surgeon, who died 16 years ago.  Her son and daughter were at her bedside when death came.  Other survivors are a sister, Mrs. Jerusha Gregg, Los Angeles, California, and 6 grandchildren.  Funeral services will be conducted from the home at 3 p.m. tomorrow, the Rev. W.J. Bolt, pastor of Harlan Baptist Church, officiating. Burial will be in Resthaven Cemetery.  Active pallbearers will be Green Cawood, Virgil Eversole, J.

(After the death of her husband about August 1853) "My mother then came to Minersville; from there to St. Clair; from there to East Delaware or East Norwegian.  This last place mentioned is the first place that I can remember in my childhood days.  It was there in a very old frame house, with leaky roof and cheerless surroundings, that mother died.  Two years ago, I visited the old house, still there, but almost ready to fall down.  Part of it had been removed and I was told it would all be torn down soon.  My mother must have had a very hard time, with two small children to take care of.  The years 1857-58 were desperate in the coal fields.  Just on the verge of civil war between the North and South."  From "Seventy Years in the Coal Mines", by Philip Francis, page 14.

 

She probably died during the winter of 1860-1861

Children of Philip FRANCIS/FRANK and Rebecca HARRIS are:

                    i.   Margaret Francis, born 14 Jun 1851 in Taff's Well, Eglwysilan, Glamorgan, Wales; died 05 Aug 1947 in Knoxville, Knox Co, TN; married (1) James Luke Ludlam 23 Feb 1882 in Trenton, Mercer Co, NJ; born Bet. Apr - Jun 1849 in Brierly Hill, Staffordshire, England; died Bef. 1900 in NJ; married (2) George Gilgour Abt. 1904 in Probably PA; born 20 Oct 1842 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co, PA; died 03 Oct 1918 in Pottsville, Schuylkill Co, PA.

 

Notes for Margaret Francis:

The birth certificate of Margaret Francis from the Caerphilly Register Office shows Margaret as the daughter of Philip Francis & Rebecca (formerly Harris).   Margaret was born at Taff’s Well, Eglwysilan on 14 June 1851. Birth notified by Philip Francis, father, on 25 June 1851. He signed with a X. Register number 106.

1900 Census for Trenton, Mercer County, NJ - roomer in household of Elizabeth RULON.  Margaret's  DOB is shown as June 1852, age 47, widowed, born Wales, occupation seamstress, immigrated 1854, in USA 46 years (this is not consistent with her birth 1851 in Wales and Philip's in 1853 in PA).  Based on 1880 Trenton census, Elizabeth RULON was the widow of Mark T. RULON.

Surname written and indexed as GILGON, but this must be George GILGOUR, who was in Mahanoy City in 1880.  There are 11 other individuals in the 1880 census indexed with the surname GILGON, but none of them were born in Scotland.  There are no individuals indexed with this surname in the 1850 or 1860 censuses, so these may have been census transcription errors.  Lizzie PATTEN & Caroline & Robert DOLBIN were nieces and nephew of Mary Ann (Groom) GILGOUR.

 

1900 Census, 3rd Ward, Mahanoy City, Schuylkill County, PA - boarder in home of E. S. BRICKER.

 

1910 Census, Pottsville, Schuylkill County, PA

 

His Pennsylvania death certificate shows his parents as born in Wales; however, the 1880 census shows them born in Scotland.  Other censuses show them born in Ireland.  His second wife, Margaret (Francis) GILGOUR, was the informant on the death certificate, and his parents were both dead before their marriage, so she probably did not know and simply guessed, as George's first wife was shown as born in Wales in censuses.

 

GEORGE GILGOUR was born in Philadelphia, October 20th, 1843, and married Mary A. Groem, of this county, April 9th, 1866. Since 1873 he has been inside foreman of the Elmwood colliery, Mahanoy City. In 1879 he won the $150 offered by the Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron Company to the foreman whose reports and workings showed the best management during the year.

      10.  Richard MEYRICK, born Bet. 1821 - 1824 in Wales; died 07 Dec 1893 in Jellico, Campbell Co, TN.  He married 11. Margaret WILLIAMS Abt. 1852 probably Schuylkill Co, PA.

      11.  Margaret WILLIAMS, born 23 Mar 1835 in Wales (not Monmouthshire); died 19 Jul 1871 in Mahanoy City, Schuylkill Co, PA.  She was the daughter of 22. Evan WILLIAMS and 23. Mary THOMAS.

 

Notes for Richard MEYRICK:

Called "Dakie" by his grandchildren, which is a variation of the Welsh expression, Tad Cu (pronounced Tad kee), meaning grandfather.  He was said to have been an "1849 California miner", which suggests that he took part in the California Gold Rush that began in 1848.  Margaret (Francis) WILLIAMS told her grandson, John Philip WILLIAMS, Jr., that Richard returned from California with a large amount of gold.  He suffered with "coal miner's asthma" for the last 15-20 years of his life and for that reason supposedly slept on a self-prepared mattress of washed corn shucks.  Richard moved from PA to the KY/TN area at some point after the 1880 census.  He must have lived at least part of the time with Philip & Annie, as Mary (Francis) VAN HUSS related stories about his living with them to her son, John Philip VAN HUSS.  Richard's family Bible record shows that he died 7 December 1893 in Jellico, TN, at age 71.  I do not know if he moved to KY with Annie and children when they joined Philip ca. 1883, or if he came later.

 

1850 Census - could possibly be the Richard MYLOCK, 30, miner, born Wales, who is a boarder in the home of Edward and Margaret ROBERTS in Mauch Chunk, Carbon County, PA, which is adjacent to Schuylkill County.  There is no Richard MEYRICK in the census.  There are several Richard MYRICK names but none born outside the USA.  There were no MYLOCK names in Wales in 1841.  There were no MYLOCK names in the 1860 US census, so this was probably an enumerator spelling error.

Notes for Margaret WILLIAMS:

There is an unexplained 8-year gap between the births of her children, Thomas MEYRICK in 1857 and Kate MEYRICK in 1865.  Richard was enumerated in the household in the 1860 census and presumably not out of the household during this period of time.  It is possible that Margaret suffered a series of spontaneous abortions or had a chronic illness, as she died at a very early age.  The period of 1860-1870 was probably very difficult for Margaret.  In addition to the hardships of the Civil War, she probably endured the deaths of both of her parents, perhaps some of her siblings, and her last two children, Kate and John.

 

Marriage Notes for Richard MEYRICK and Margaret WILLIAMS:

There was no marriage record in Wales for a Richard MEYRICK to a Margaret WILLIAMS in a Free BMD search 19 Jan 2005 .  If Richard MEYRICK was the same person as Richd MYLOCK, age 30, boarder, in the 1850 census for Mauch Chunk, Carbon County, PA, then he probably married Margaret WILLIAMS in Schuylkill County, PA, ca. 1852.  It is unlikely that any record of this marriage exists.  The only Margaret WILLIAMS of the right age in Schuylkill County, PA, was the daughter of Evan and Mary WILLIAMS.  In the 1860 census, the Richard and Margaret(Williams) MEYRICK family is enumerated on the same census page in Tuscarora, PA, as the Evan and Mary WILLIAMS family, so it is reasonable to assume that this is the correct Margaret WILLIAMS.

     

Children of Richard MEYRICK and Margaret WILLIAMS are:

      5            i.   Annie MEYRICK, born 15 Apr 1853 in Mahanoy City, Schuylkill Co, PA; died 05 Sep 1933 in Knoxville, Knox Co, TN; married Philip FRANCIS 09 Jan 1875 in Mahanoy City, Schuylkill Co, PA, at the home of Rev. W. D. Thomas, Pastor of the Welsh Baptist Church.  The only witnesses were the minister and his wife..

                   ii.   Thomas Meyrick, born 23 Mar 1857 in Mahanoy City, Schuylkill Co, PA; died 14 Sep 1888 in Keystone Slope, Plains Twp., Luzerne Co, PA.

Thomas MEYRICK's birth and death dates were recorded in the Richard MEYRICK family Bible probably by his sister, Annie.  He moved to Luzerne County after the 1880 census.  Philip Francis' first cousin, Daniel R.

Notes for Judge Jonathan Kelly BAILEY:

      "Jonathan K. BAILEY and his wife Louisa JONES BAILEY had their home and store near the present Gilly-Hoskins Furniture store (in Mt. Pleasant)."  Another entry "had a store about where the Court Cafe is now".

      "There was an epidemic of typhoid fever in 1890 and Jonathan K. BAILEY lost three sons within three months:  M. Green BAILEY died October 2, 1890; W. R. BAILEY died October 13, 1890, and A. J. BAILEY died December 21, 1890.  M. Green BAILEY was married to Florence HURST and he left her a young widow with two little girls.  They had another son Granville Pearl BAILEY who became a physician and at this time he was 25 years old, but I do not know if he was practicing at this time.  They had two daughters.  Sallie who married Tyrus HOWARD, son of Robert and they had moved to Wasioto; Sudie who married Attorney Green EVERSOLE, son of Rolan who married Lucinda, daughter of Will and Elizabeth Cornett CAMPBELL."  From "A History of Harlan County"

 

Jonathan K. Bailey, Granville's father, was born about 1838. He practiced law for many years in Harlan. Jonathan's wife Louisa was the daughter of Mastin Green Jones, one of Harlan and Pineville's early merchants. Jonathan was the son of Andrew J. and Anna Kelly Bailey.

Mrs. G. A. Eversole , 48 years old, succumbed at her home on Main Street Monday evening at 7:30, after being stricken with a paralysis on Thursday, Feb 5.  Mrs. Eversole was a very prominent woman in Harlan County and she leaves many friends to mourn her death.  She is the wife of G. A. Eversole, and mother of Virgil Eversole, both being prominent in the business circles of Harlan County.  She was a sister of Dr. J. (actually G.) P. Bailey, and the daughter of J. K. Bailey, deceased, and Mrs. Louise Bailey, also deceased.  She had 3 brothers who had preceded her to the great beyond many years ago. (Interesting that there was no mention of her older sister, Sallie)

Notes for William Martin "Will" BALL:

William Martin BALL married for the 2nd time in Pella, Wise County, TX, on 18 May 1876.  About 1885, the family moved to Memphis, TX, and bought a farm there.  In June 1900, they sold the farm and moved to the newly opened Oklahoma Territory.  They acquired a farm in the small community of Rainy, Oklahoma (now long gone).  Rainy was located 6 miles east of the town of Rocky (which is 9 miles north of Hobart).  When the town of Hobart was established (August 1901), they moved to a farm abutting the east edge of town, where they lived until their deaths.  The farm is still owned by a descendant.  William Martin BALL was one of the founders of the town of Hobart.  His name appears on the cornerstone of the original City Hall, where he is listed as a Councilman.  (Information from letter written 7 Aug 2005 by grandson, William J. "Bill" BALL.)

Ca. 1863 - "My grandfather's name was Richard FRANCIS.  He lived on a farm by the name of Evalt Farm near Caerphilly, Glamorgan, South Wales.  I have never visited Wales and cannot give a description of the farms, but when I was about ten years of age, I received a letter from him stating that he would like for me and my sister, Margaret, who was then about 12 years old, to come to Wales and live with him; to take care of the horses and to do other work that was necessary on the farm.  I did not know where my sister was as she had been separated from me years before.  He also stated in his letter that I was the nearest heir to the property.  Having no one to advise me, as my parents were dead, I stayed in Pennsylvania."  From "Seventy Years in the Coal Mines", by Philip Francis, page 13.

There are two baptisms recorded in Merthyr Tydfil for John and Mary, children of a James and Elizabeth HARRIES on 17 February 1822. James is described as a "Navigator" -  a term used for labourers working on the Glamorganshire Canal which was under construction around that time. If this is the same couple as the James and Elizabeth HARRY, parents of Rebecca and her sisters, of St.Athan, this could account for the apparent long gap following the marriage in 1819, and also explain why Rebecca said she was born in Merthyr Tydfil in the census. Once work on the canal had ended, James could have gone back to St.Athan as a farm labourer. But there is no way that I can see of establishing if they are the same couple.  <Kathleen Rhys>

The family was in Merthyr Tydfil, presumably for James HARRY's work, and left Merthyr Tydfil after Rebecca's birth ca. 1829, and arrived in St. Athans before Elizabeth's birth probably late in 1831.

According to his greatgrandson, Ben James, he added the middle initial "R" in adult life.  This may have been a tribute to his father, Robert, or to his younger brother, Robert, who died at a young age.  Two of William's sons also added an "R" as a middle initial for the same reason.

1841 Census for Blaina, Aberystruth, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, Wales - possibly the family of Evan 35, collier, Mary 30, Harriet 10, Margaret 6, Thomas 4, Mary 2.  If this is the correct family, Harriet and Anna would be the same person and Mary 2, would have died before the 1850 census.  Evan & Harriet were born in Monmouthshire, but his wife, Mary, and other chidlren including Margaret were not.  The ages for Evan, Mary, Anna/Harriet, Margaret, and Thomas suggest this is the correct family.

Elizabeth cannot be found in the 1850 census.  She may have died about 1842 with the birth of her second son, as her husband remarried in 1843.

It is somewhat unclear which of the children of George Washington CRIDER, Sr., belong to which wife.  Betsy Short Tedford says that the first 4 or 5 children born up to 1845 were those of Elizabeth Anne BAILEY, although he married  Susan HARRIS in 1843.

Notes for Benjamin Franklin Ball:

May have been an older sister of Emily; however, she does not appear in the household of Abraham SKIDMORE in 1850 or 1860.  Her name may have been combined with her younger sister's name, who was shown only as Jerusha in all of the census images but is shown as Jerusha Jane in many lineages.  She may not exist, but I placed her name here because of her possible existence.

1910 census for Rocky Station, Lee County, VA - shown as age 47, so the 1900 census was an error.  The SKIDMORE CD shows him as born 1873 rather than 1863, so the CD is incorrect.

           I, Jonathan Kelly, of the County of Harlan and State of Kentucky, being weak of body but of strong mind calling to mind the uncertainty of death, do hereby make and constitute this my last Will and Testament.  First of all, I bequeath to God my soul who gives it and my body to the dust where it must return.

           First, I give to my beloved wife Eliza Kelly all my household and kitchen furniture with my family Bible or any other books which she may wish to keep and all her manufactured yarns to keep belonging to her house also all her poultry and a sufficiency of animal food for her family for one year and one mare and colt, two cows and calves.  After my just debts and funeral expenses are paid, the balance of my estate to be disposed of as hereafter directed.

           I give to Daniel Setzer and his wife the tract of land on which he lives, also the tract of land across the branch embracing the Depew farm also the Sick Lick branch and Snake Den Fork which they are to hold and occupy their lifetime and then it shall belong to their heirs which I rate to them at six hundred dollars.

           I give to Josiah Wynn and Elkanah Wynn and their wives one third of one undivided tract of land which one third has heretofore been deeded to said Wynns by William Kelly of three thousand five hundred and fifty acres which I rate to them at four hundred dollars.  I order and direct that my executors shall sell my home tracts of land to the highest bidder unless in their judgment they think they can make a safe private contract also all the personal property and farming utensils, also the slaves to be sold on such credit as my executors may think proper and after the full payment of all my debts the balance of my estate shall be equally divided as the law directs between my wife and children with the exception of William B. Kelly, he shall receive no more until the rest shall receive six hundred and Daniel M. Setzer and his wife shall receive no more until the rest gets six hundred dollars.  Josiah Wynn and Elkanah Wynn are to share equally with the least after the rest receive two hundred dollars.  Two hundred dollars are to be deducted from Alexander Kelly's heirs for money advanced to him.

           I last appoint William B. Kelly and John Kelly and Jonathan K. Bailey my executors of this my last Will and Testament--signed, sealed, and acknowledged in the present of these witnesses this 3rd day of January, 1861.
