10. Winfield Clair Knell was born on 8 Dec 1890 in Bethel Twp., Armstrong Co., PA. He died on 9 Dec 1949 in New Kensington PA. He was buried in Brick Church Cemetery. He was married to Ethel Walter Adams.
Walter Adams was born on 9 May 1891 in W. Bolivar, Westmoreland Co.,
PA. She died on 19 May 1974. She was buried in Brick Church Cemetery. Ethel's
father, Walter, died April 23, 1891 a few days before Ethel was born, so she
never knew her father. Tragically, Ethel's mother, Jennie, died in 1894, leaving
four yourng children without parents. The four children of Walter and Jennie
were apparently taken in by James and Agnes Adams, their grandparents to be raised.
We see the children listed in the Census for 1900 in Fairfield Twp., in the
household of Agnes Adams, who by that time was widowed herself. Children were:
