From HCPD Jackson Ledger: "Martha Miller Jackson died while on a visit to her daughter, Mrs. Polly Bush (Mary Jackson). As there were no bridges at that early date and Hacker's Creek and other streams were so much swollen by rain, they could not cross to bring her body to the "Jackson Grounds"."

From Colonial Ancestors: Martha "is buried in the Butcher Cemetery, Lewis County, WV and he (husband Edward) is buried near Mount Clare, Harrison County.

Other sites have said that Martha was born in Staunton, Augusta County, VA but I, Janie, think the New Jersey location seems more likely.

An old letter has turned up recently that says Martha's middle name was Hannah. I don't know if this is correct, but it is a lead.
