American Don KNOTTS

born Jesse Donald KNOTTS

American comedic actor

Born: on July 21, 1924 in Morgantown, West Virginia, USA
Died: on February 24, 2006 in Los Angeles, California, USA


Knotts was born in Morgantown, West Virginia, a son of William Jesse Knotts and his wife, the former Elsie L. Moore. Knotts' paternal ancestors had emigrated from England to America in the 17th century, originally settling in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland. Knotts' father was a farmer, but suffered a nervous breakdown and lost his land. Afflicted with both schizophrenia and alcoholism, he died when Knotts was thirteen years old. Knotts and his two brothers were then raised by their mother, who ran a boarding house in Morgantown.

An urban legend claims that Knotts served in the United States Marine Corps during World War II, serving as a drill instructor at Parris Island. In reality, Knotts enlisted in the United States Army after graduating from Morgantown High School and spent most of his service entertaining troops.
