Elizabeth was born about 1771. This birth year is a guess based on an age of 21 years at the time of marriage. She may be the Elizabeth born Jan. 6, 1773 in Boscawen, New Hampshire to Nathan Davis and his wife Jane but more research is needed to establish this connection.

Betsey married Philip Knowlton on February 1, 1792 in Orford, New Hampshire.

In the only census record in which they appear, Philip is enumerated in the 1800 U.S. Census of Orford, along with wife Betsey (both in the 26-44 age category) and four children under 10 years - two boys and two girls.

Betsey appears in the land records of Orford when, on February 7, 1806, she buys from Jared Mann, for the sum of $200, the Easterly half of Lot 12, Ninth Range, 50 acres of Orford property. This land is close to or adjoins land she and Philip already own. Philip does not appear on the Deed, meaning Betsey purchased this land as her separate property.
