[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 19 July 1978, in Hopson, Tennessee, USA, there was a close encounter with an unidentified craft and its occupants. "An unidentifiable object and its occupants were observed at close range (Knowll)."

The sources are indicated as Eberhart, George M., A Geo-Bibliography of Anomalies, Greenwood Press, Westport, 1980, ISBN:0-313-21337-2.

Points to consider:

I did not find any other source than [ud1] for this case.

The [ud1] source usually gives synthetic information that does not reflect the exact case; for example, the plural "its occupants" is given for cases with only one alleged occupant. So all we have here is that there was apparently a CE3 case reported for 19 July 1978, in Hopson, Tennessee, USA, by someone named "Knoll".
