They had 11 children, which included among them their eldest son Caleb Stark, who later became a Historian and State Senator for New Hampshire. She became well known due to her husband's battle cry, "There are your enemies, the Red Coats and the Tories. They are ours, or this night Molly Stark sleeps a widow!". He would shout those words before engaging with the British and Hessian army in the Battle of Bennington. She would also be known for her success as a nurse to her husband's troops during a Smallpox epidemic, and for opening their home as a hospital during the war.
