Deseret News on July 14, 1884.
“Saturday evening a very painful and dangerous accident occurred to one of the sons of Alonzo Knight, of Plain City. The young man, between 18 and 19 years of age, was riding home on a load of hay. Suddenly the fodder commenced to slip and the youth slid down, unfortunately on a pitchfork one of the prongs of which penetrated his body, entering at the left of the breast bone and emerging at the back, above the shoulder blade. The prong passed through the diaphragm and the lungs.
Dr. John Driver, of this city, was sent for, and he did the best possible under the desperate circumstances. Of course, the young man is in a rather critical condition.”
In 1889 Stephen Knight married Mary Ellen Carver. They were blessed with nine children.
