On his birth certificate he is John Knotts, but by the 1900 census he is being called Harley. I am assuming one or the other is his middle name. The same birthdate is on each record. His mother states on the 1900 census that she has had 10 children, and three are living. John and Harley couldn't have been twins; John Harley is the 10th child born 1900 or before.
