Birth: 1784
Pittsylvania County
Virginia, USA
Death: 1850
Powell County
Kentucky, USA

Martha was the daughter of John and Lucy Bleakley Morton. John Morton was born 11/20/1733 in Brunswicke Co.(to Joseph Morton and Elizabeth ?), Virginia and died between 1791 and 1795 in Pittsylvania, Virginia.

From Genuform: Research by Edward and Mary Schoberg states: "Captain John Morton was married before he married Lucy Blakeley. "The Morton Story" by Douglas Morton, lists his first wife as Amy. Other sources call her Gean. We know that they had at least 10 children. Captain John served in the Revolutionary War. After the Revolution he continued to make a living by farming. An article by the Kentucky Historical Society states that in 1792, Eli Cleveland and John Morton applied for a patent on 1,485 acres on a branch of Red River in Kentucky. In 1796, Captain John and Lucy sold 150 acres of land in anticipation of their move to Kentucky. Isaiah Morton, a son from the first marriage, was given Power of Attorney in June of 1798, to dispose of the 630 acre farm and home located on Sandy River. Captain John died within a short time after this matter was attended to. The rest of the family moved to Kentucky some time before September 1798."
