      "Among those who died there were Joseph Knight, Sr. who had joined the LDS Church early in Colesville, New York."
      Many have mistaken Joseph Knight, Sr's death place as Pisgah, Harrison County, Iowa. The mistake may come from the records showing his son Joseph Knight, Jr., residing in the area and being called as bishop to the Blockhouse Branch.
