This is my Great-Grandmother's brother, John Knight Jr., at his farm on Gosling Road in Portsmouth, New Hampshire (dated prior to 1950). It was passed down to him by his father, JOHN KNIGHT, who died in 1917.
The government came through in the 1950's, with plans on building an air base in Newington, spreading partly into Portsmouth, and included the Knight property. In April 1952, Uncle Johnny sold off all his standing timber to H. Roby Jewell, with the right to construct a sawmill on the property while the clear cutting was done. In October of the same year, all the heirs of John Knight Sr (and their spouses) signed over the 65 acres to the U.S.A. for $10,600.
