Elizabeth E. Martin Farmer
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 22, 1802
Halifax County
Virginia, USA
Death: Jul. 12, 1871
Weakley County
Tennessee, USA

Elizabeth E. Martin/Farmer was born in Halifax County, Virginia to Thomas Martin and Drucilla Vawter/Martin in 1802.

She married John F. Farmer in 1823 in Halifax County, Virginia. John and Elizabeth migrated to Weakley County, Tennessee in about 1838.

ELizabeth's tombstone is broken. Fortunately it can be pieced together like a jigsaw puzzle and can be completely deciphered. Unfortunately, John F. Farmer's tombstone cannot be found. His tombstone has been lost or destroyed. It is believed he is buried next to his wife Elizabeth. Weakley County Deed Book V, page 294, dated 4 Aug 1871, supports this belief. It states "Wm H & John B Farmer further agrees and binds themselves that at the death of said John F (they will) properly and decently bury him by the side of his deceased wife our mother".
