Gilory, CA Dispatch obituary:
Edward Ritts died Sunday, Aug. 29, 2004. He was 80.
Born in Iowa on Aug. 17, 1924, to Charles and Juanita Ritts, he served as a B-24 pilot for the Army Air Corp during World War II.
After the war, Mr. Ritts returned home and married Marilyn, his high school sweetheart, in 1945.
He graduated from Iowa State University in 1948 with an Engineering degree.
His professional career included work as an automotive engineer for the Cities Service and Tidewater Oil Companies, as a small business owner, and finally, as a Real Estate Broker as he approached his retirement years.
Married for almost 50 years, Mr. and Mrs. Ritts enjoyed traveling, particularly their yearly trips to Lake Tahoe and Kona, and the company of their many friends.
Mr. Ritts cherished the friendship and camaraderie provided by the Morgan Hill Airmen's Association, the Gilroy Elks Club, and the Local Sirs Club.
He looked forward over the years to his fishing trips in Canada and Alaska and his hunting trips in Wyoming. His gentle nature, caring soul, and self-effacing humor will be greatly missed by all.
He is survived by his son, Craig; daughter-in-law Terry; beloved grandsons, Casey and Matt; new granddaughter-in-law Maricor; brother, Bill; and many beautiful extended family members.
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Marilyn.

2207 Yellow Fever Epidemic
Yellow fever was periodically rampant in Philadelphia from 1793 - 1799. It's possible that Henry Weiss died of this disease in late 1798 or early 1799 while he was a schoolmaster in Philadelphia.

Knowlton Genealogy by C.H.W. Stocking 1897
Errata & Addenda by G.H. Knowlton 1903:
Captain William Knowlton sailed from London, England to Nova Scotia in 1632-4 w/ wife & children. He was at least part owner in the boat. He died on the voyage. His wife & children continued to Nova Scotia. They remained in Nova Scotia for a short time. They then proceeded to Ma., probally Hingham, the following year, where his widow is said to have remarried. John removed to Ipswich in 1639 & William & Thomas in 1642. John, Benjamin, Abraham, & William served in King Phillip's War.
This "story" by Stocking has been disproven by several people.

Knowlton, Robert (I2630)
