Meet and Greet the Knowles!


The head of the household, Richard, works at Entropic Communications.

He's normally working longer hours, so his limited off-time is spent either watching TV or playing on the computer!

My first name Jonathan comes from my maternal great grandfather, Jonathan David Schmidt Sr. He was a German Brethren minister and the name Jonathan means "Gift of God".

My middle name Samuel comes from my paternal grandfather, Hilburne Earle Knowles Sr., who's nickname is Sam (while in the Navy, he was nickhamed "Sam Spade" because he was always looking into things!). The name Samuel means "Asked of God" and Mommy and Daddy spent a lot of time asking God for me! My mommy also found out that my great great grandfather on my mom's side was Jacob Samuel Schmidt. Yet another Samuel!
