Carroll County IL Biography

Adelbert S. Kneale was the son of Stephen and Jemima (Downing) Kneale. He was born on July 15, 1854 in Carroll County, Illinois and died sometime before October 29, 1930. (His sister, Maria E. Kneale Keech died October 29, 1930 and her obituary states that he died before her.) I don't know when he moved to Texas. He married Hattie Phillips in about 1888, probably in Texas.

They appear on the 1910 US Federal Census living in Corsicana, Navarro County, Texas, where he worked as a watchmaker in a jewelry store and his wife was a stenographer in a refinery office.

Adelbert S. Kneale and his wife had two children, Adelbert Downing Kneale, who was born about 1889 in Texas and Elizabeth A. Kneale, who was born about 1896 in Texas.
