William Henry Knox married Nellie Irene Bordeaux, daughter of Edward Bordeaux and Martha Kelly, on 23 October 1890 at New Florence, Montgomery Co., MO. William Henry Knox died on 25 August 1944 at New Florence, Montgomery Co., MO, at age 81 OBITUARY:

William Henry Knox, son of David Franklin Knox and Catherine Davault Knox was born near New Florence, Missouri, January 1, 1863, and departed this life at his birthplace on August 25, 1944, at the age of 81 years, 7 months and 24 days.
On October 23, 1890, he was united in marriage to Miss Nellie Bordeaux. To this union three children were born -- David Franklin of New Florence; Clara Louise, now Mrs. E. H. Duebbert of New Florence; and William Henry, Jr., of St. Louis, Missouri.
Besides his devoted wife and children he leaves to mourn his departure three grandchildren Dorothy Louise Duebbert, Mildren Knox Duebbert, and Jimmy Knox all of St. Louis, Missouri; one brother, J. U. Knox of New Florence; three nieces, Edna Louise Goss, Georgia Knox Goss, and Mildren Knox Goss of San Jose, Calif; one nephew Eldon L.

For over fifty years Mr. Knox was a member of Florence Lodge, No. 261, A. F. & A. M. He was also a member of Triune Chapter, No 93 Royal Arch Masons of Wellsville, Missouri, and Centralia Council, No. 34 Royal and Select Masters of Centralia, Missouri. He was a charter member of the New Florence Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star, acting as the chapter's first patron.
Mr. Knox, a representative of one of the pioneer families of the county, was at the same time a man who by his own exertions and merits placed himself among the leading successful farmers of the county. In the absence of his father from ill health, he undertook the entire management of several farms when he was quite young to assume such responsibility. From that time until his death he was actively engaged in farming. The general esteem in which he was held was the result of his high character, his many estimable qualities as a neighbor, and his well-known integrity and upright life. The warmth of his hospitality will always be remembered by the many persons who visited in his home.
Thus ends a fruitful life that may serve as an example to the generations which follow him.

"Twlight and evening bell
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar."

Funeral services were held at the home Sunday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock conducted by Rev. Paul C. Paschal, who paid a very beautiful tribute to the memory of the deceased. Burial was in New Florence Cemetery. Services at the grave were conducted by the Masons. The floral tributes were very beautiful and profuse attesting the esteem in which he was held.


We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to our neighbors, relatives and friends for their many acts of kindness during the illness and at the death of our loved one
