The Tales of a Blair Family    

Samuel Eugene Knox

Samuel Eugene Knox was born December 16, 1871 in Abbeville, South Carolina, the son of David Crawford and Sallie Elizabeth "Eliza" Walker Knox.  His early childhood was spent in South Carolina, but his father, a blacksmith, was unable to find work in Abbeville, so the family moved to Georgia.  Samuel Eugene married Minnie Clayton Stoddard about 1901 and found work with the US Post Office.  When he retired, in 1935, the family was living in the area called "Sandy Springs".

Samuel and Minnie had only one child, Charles Pierce Knox, born January 10, 1902.  Charles married in Atlanta on May 6, 1922 to Miss Pauline Clarke.
