In 1894, he bought a farm one mile northeast of Coleman, across Hords Creek, where they established their family homeplace and continued to live there the remainder of their lives.

Mr. Knox was a Mason, W. O. W., K. of H., K. of P., and other civic organizations. He was elected County Surveyor in November, 1892, and served one term to November, 1894.
