Morse Street

This street was originally named Morse Street.[1] Morse was the maiden name of Josephine Knox, the wife of William Wilbur Knox and daughter-in-law of the Rev. Jeremiah Knox, for whom Knoxville is named.[2][3] Bob Regan says that Josephine was related to Samuel Morse, known for the Morse code.[3] However, Regan confuses this street with Morse Way in Hazelwood.[3]
