Perhaps so.  Joel Chandler Harris, however, would have written, in fact did write, 'spectin.  He was a pretty faithful recorder of southern/Black dialect speech.

It pays to do a Google image search.  I've found a few photos of ancestors that way.

Have you seen this?  Not that it sheds any light on Theo.

I don't have time to look right now, but I notice that there is a small cluster of people named Boardman Knox in Massachusetts.  It might be worth poking around there if you haven't already done so.

There's a family tree here:

It does not identify the parents of Eliza Brindle but it looks she might have been a cousin given that Malachi's mother was a Brindle from Pennsylvania.  She had several brothers.
