Family Group
William Knapp was born in 1742 in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, which is just a few miles east of Providence, Rhode Island. It was there that he met and married Martha Luscombe on November 1, 1762. She was born in Rehoboth in 1744.

About 1770, after their first three children were born in Massachusetts, they moved to Moretown, Vermont, just a few miles west of the capital, Montpelier. There they had 5 more children. During this same period of time, Willian served as a Revolutionary Soldier.

The 1790 U.S. Census shows they were in Orange Township in Grafton County, New Hampshire, which just across the state line east of Montpelier, and it was there that their nineth child was born.

They moved back to Moretown, Vermont where William died in 1794. Martha lived another 49 years and died in Moretown in 1843. Both are buried in the Fairmont Cemetery in Moretown.
