Martha Campbell married Major John Morrison (1740-1814) in Augusta County, Virginia about the year 1770. The couple moved first to eastern Tennessee; soon thereafter, John and Martha removed to Fayette County, Kentucky, arriving in April 1779. They settled within a small fort on the site where the City of Lexington now stands. Martha was the first white woman to permanently reside at the fort and her son, John Morrison, Jr., was the first white child to be born (1780) in Lexington, Kentucky. Martha and John had a total of nine children.
