Lucius Knight

Lucius Knight was born July 5, 1850, in Washtenaw County, Michigan.  His boyhood was spent on a farm, and his early education received in a country school.  When he was seventeen years old his parents removed to Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he entered the high school, and was graduated.

     In 1871 he enrolled himself as a student in the law school of the University of Michigan, and was graduated in the spring of 1873.  For four years he practiced his profession in Central and Northern Michigan, at the end of which time he removed to Arkansas City, Kas.  While studying law he also studied stenography, and never allowed himself to forget his proficiency.  In Arkansas City he was appointed court stenographer by Judge W. P. Campbell, of the Thirteenth Judicial District Court, and was later re-appointed by Judge Edwin Torrance.

     In 1881 he resigned his position and came to Kansas City, where he engaged in general short-hand work until 1882, when he was appointed Court Stenographer of Division No. 1 by Judge Turner A. Gill.  He held the same position under Judge R. H. Field, Judge E. L Scarritt, and now holds it under Judge James Gibson.

     Mr. Knight married Miss Mary A. Clark, of St. Louis, June 29, 1892, and they have three children living, Stewart C., Ralph A., and Helen J.
