Daughter of Alexander Stephens and Mary (Polly) Daily

Married- Capt. James Brown, Jr., 2 Mar 1823 in Waters of Flat, Creek Swamp, Rowan, North Carolina, the marriage was performed by Ronson Harris.

Martha has the distinction of being the wife of James Brown's youth and helping in his ambitious business undertakings. Martha bore him eight sons, and one daughter, all living to adult age, except one, marrying and rearing large families, all of them a credit to her. Most of her children resembled her in physique and inherted her evident calmness and contended outlook on life.

Wheen her last son, Moroni, was born in her thirty-fourth year, she passed away on the 28th day of September 1849 in Kingston, Adams Co, Illinois. She had received the Gospel when her husband did, as also her brother and other of the Stephens family, who later came to Utah and settled in Ogden. Her sister, Elizabeth, who married James Brown's brother Daniel Brown, also came to Utah and lived to a good old age and died and buried in Ogden, Weber, UT.
