Does That Look Like Knox To You?

Pulling images for the Daily Genealogy Transcriber is fun. Sometimes the images are easy to read and sometimes they are not. Part of the "game" is to have people read the names out of context--so that it's easier to see how things can be read incorrectly.

Would you know this was "Knox" if you ran across it while reading records? Of course, it is the name of the county which is obvious from the record, but sometimes if there is no context, it is easy to see how something could be read incorrectly.
