Knox, Rose Markward (18 November 1857–27 September 1950), food manufacturer, was born in Mansfield, Ohio, the daughter of David Markward, a druggist, and Amanda Foreman, and christened Helen Rosetta. She attended public schools in Mansfield and in her early twenties moved with her parents to Gloversville, New York. There she took a job sewing gloves, a job that introduced her to a glove salesman, Charles Briggs Knox, whom she married in February 1883; they had three children. He continued in sales, switching to knit goods, while the family lived in New York City and Newark, New Jersey....
