Biography* 1904  CHARLES H. KNIGHT was born in the village of Farmer. Defiance county, Ohio, on the 18th of May, 1870. and after attending the public schools of his native county until he had attained the age of about fifteen years he then entered the Northern Indiana Normal School and Business College at Valparaiso, Indiana, where he completed a course in the commercial department, later being matriculated in Angola College, at Angola, Indiana, where he continued his scholastic work until about iSSS. when he came to Canton and took the position of bookkeeper for the Canton Saw Company, of which his father was a stockholder at the time. When the latter established the business of the Knight Manufacturing Company in July, 1892, the subject assumed the position of general manager of the concern, and of this responsible office he has since remained incumbent, while through his discerning and well directed efforts much has been done to further the excellent and gratifying success which has attended the enterprise from the time of its practical inchoation, the products from the well equipped plant being of so superior excellency in design and workmanship as to command the highest favor wherever introduced, and it may be said that the business of the company now permeates into the most diverse sections of the Union. In addition to his executive duties in connection with the office affairs and general management of the business the subject also does effective service as its outside representative when such interposition on his part seems expedient. In politics he maintains an independent attitude, and fraternally he is identified with the Travelers' Protective Association.

In the city of Canton, on the 11th of February, 1891, Mr. Knight was united in marriage to Miss Eva Black, who was born and reared in this city, being a daughter of Jarvis Black, who was long one of the leading contractors and builders of this section, having erected the old court house in Canton, besides many churches, school houses, business structures and private residences in this locality. He is now living retired in Canton. Mr. and Mrs. Knight have two children, Karl and Paul.1
