... The fact is Dr. Knight's body was riddled with cancer mostly likely brought on by a lifetime of smoking and exposure to ionizing radiation (he was one of the first MD researchers at MCV during the development of a new diagnostic tool known as "x-ray").
The email in its intirety is with the general notes for James Knight, great great grand father of Thomas Estin Knight.
Thomas married Ruby B. Harlow circa 1925. (Ruby B. Harlow was born on 17 May 1904 in Virginia, died on 27 Oct 1998 and was buried in Farmville, Prince Edward Co., VA.)
