I found this post-1900s bottle in the creek behind my house. I did a little research on the markings and found that it was made by the Knox Glass Company in Jackson, MS. But what do the other markings mean, and what was it made to hold?

Welcome to the forum! I believe these were olive oil bottles. It's not exactly the same but a similar one is shown in this ad:

The other base embossing is probably just mold numbers and meaningless to anyone other than the company's employees back in the day.
