Jesse Donald 'Don' Knotts, (July 21, 1924 - February 24, 2006)
I knew that my husband had ancestors from the area of Morgantown, WV so I went to FamilySearch.org and did a search for the ancestry of Don Knotts. I saw that he had Gregg ancestors, as does my husband! Further research showed that my husband Larry Jamison is indeed a distant cousin of Don Knotts. He was thrilled when I told him this news because he's been watching The Andy Griffith Show a lot lately. We both really like Barney Fife, the character that Don Knotts plays in this old TV series. This chart shows that Don is Larry's 7th cousin 2 times removed.
