  • Notes 
    • Foster Genealogy (citation details below) says she married "Fred Knight" and "d. leaving two or three sons who res. in So. Dak." She appears to have been the youngest of her parents' seventeen children, thirteen of whom lived to adulthood.

      Her middle names Noyes probably has something to with the early intermarriage of her husband's family with the eminent Noyes family of New England.
