SAMUEL KNOX represents the Twentieth District, composed of the counties of Harrison and Belmont. He was born
in Harrison county, where he has resided almost continuously until the present time. He is about forty nine years
old, and is a bachelor. He has spent a portion of his life in teaching.
In 1860 he was elected Auditor of Harrison county, and, at the close of his term of office, was re-elected. The
duties of the office, during this time, were unusually arduous, and his acquaintances tell us that he made as good
an Auditor as, or perhaps the best Auditor, the county ever had.
He has also edited The Cadiz Republican. He is, and always has been, a Republican in politics.
This is his first appearance in a legislative assembly. His district was represented by a Democrat during the two
terms preceding the present term.
We learn from his acquaintances that Mr. Knox is a wellread man, not only in general, but also in historical and
