Death: Nov. 24, 1844

Lake County
Ohio, USA

Martha Morse Knights, twin to Mary (Morse) Capen, was born to Amos and Mary (Pettee) Morse in Foxborough, Massachusetts on September 18, 1773. May 27, 1798 she married Benjamin Knights in Foxborough, Massachusetts. This union was blessed with six children:

John Knights m. Rebecca Russell
Mary Knights m. Elijah Woolsey
Martha Knights m. Rev. John E. Akins
Dexter Knights m. Mary Ann Porter
Julia Ann Knights m. Asahel Howe
Lydia W. Knights m. Dr. David Burritt Scott

November 24, 1844 Martha Knights died and was buried in the Evergreen Cemetery, Painesville, Ohio. The tombstone inscription reads, "Age 71 years"

(Evergreen accepted its first grave in 1860, so Martha was likely re-interred from another cemetery, possibly the Washington Street Cemetery in Painesville, which became the site of Harvey High School.)
