John Knox returned to Ireland with the twins where there was another set of twins born to a mother unknown. They were born in 1836. Two boys named John and William.

John then married Eliza, the sister of Rev Robert Park in 1837 and in 1852 he, his wife and three of the four children emigrated out to Australia settling in Adelaide, South Australia. There is mention of the twin William Knox in http://www.jamaicanfamilysearch.com/Mem ... aicans.htm The other child, Ann, married in Ireland and died a year after her marriage.

Their deaths are shown in https://www.genealogysa.org.au/

Given Name(s): William KNOX died on: 23 May 1907 Age: 71y
Given Name(s): John Knox died on : 27 Oct 1908 Age: 72y

both have Approx. Birth Year: 1836

The third child, a girl, Eliza Knox, married James Loughead in Ireland and she, he and their two sons came out in 1852 on the same boat as her father.

No birth records have yet been found for John and William Knox.

No death record has been found for Sophia Gunn.

It is all a mystery.
