Anne Harrison I am searching for two cousins, I don't know their last names, but there first names are Brian & Margaret, their mother's maiden name was Knight and first name Mary, she possibly worked in Oxford. Their grandparents were Richard Knight and Elizabeth o'Neil from Hilltown Dundee. It would be lovely to find them.My grandfather Richard died at the Somme in 1916 and was in the 1st Battalion of the King's Own Scottish Borderers, he is buried at Beaumont-Hamel, Somme. I hope someone out there can help.

Emalie Knight I just found out the my 8th cousin is Robert E. Lee, general for the south in the civil war. I was wondering if any other Knights were related. My great grandma betty's surname was Lee. She was his 6th cousin. If I could find anyone else that would be great. I want to learn more about my family history.
