Marleen Moran He was born in either 1877 or 1878 Somewhere in Canada, maybe Quebec or Ontario. His parents died before he was 5. He was adopted and brought to Humboldt County California around 1885,where he grew up in Fields Landing.
His adopters managed to avoid census takers and there is no sign of him until 1900 when he was working on the Van Duzen ranch. His name might not really be Elroy Elwin Mcknight but something else all together.He married twice, the last being to Jennie Petersen. One of his sons Earl Lester Mcknight was my Grandfather.
