Notes for ALTON L NOBLES: 1920 GA, Sumter County, Americus Ward 1, District 100 Census - I believe Alton may have been visiting his aunt Annie and uncle Henry Knight during the census taking. Believe the census taker started to write his last name as Knight but was corrected and census taker did not blot out the "K" but continued to write Nobles, thus there is a "Knobles" for the last name. Alton is also listed with his parents on the 1920 Census. iii. LEWIS E NOBLES, b. 1907, Sumter County, GA.
