Notes for NAPOLEON O. KNIGHT:
Elliece Burson Tucker told Jean Burson
"Grandfather was totally deaf long before grandmother passed away. Yet he could read her lips or hear her voice. After her death his world was silent for no one could make him hear ."
Family says grandson Thomas is living duplicate of grandpa "Leon". Thomas is about 5 feet 5 or 6 inches, slender build, completely white hair, blue eyes, soft spoken and quit personality with an obvious peaceful expression.
