Adelbert Knight is buried in Greely Cemetery in Green Township, Michigan at the young age of 42 years old.  He is the first born son of Benjamin Knight and Asenath Hoskiss and lived in Genesee County, Michigan until his marriage in 1893.  He died of a fractured skull.  Seems he was in a logging accident, and a log fell on him.  He left behind a young wife, Clara (Doughty) Knight and 5 young children.  After his death his wife was unable to care for the children, and she farmed them out to various families in the area.  His memorial is posted at Find-A-Grave where a kind soul took this photo.
