The sister of Enos Thompson Throop, Governor of New York (1829-1833), Mrs. Martin, nee Mehetable Thompson Throop, was the widow of Thaddeus Martin and the mother of prominent New York attorney and journalist Enos Thompson Throop Martin. Born in Johnstown, NY, to George B. Throop and the former Abia Thompson, she was affectionately known as "Mitty". At the age of 19 she became the bride of Thaddeus Martin, a native of Connecticut. Widowed in 1826, in the mid-1840's she came to reside with her brother and son at "Willowbrook", the Throop-Martin estate on Auburn's Lake Owasco, where she enjoyed country life with her large and lively family, as well as the society of many celebrated figures of the 19th Century, among them Washington Irving, William Seward, Ulysses Grant, Andrew Johnson, George Armstrong Custer, William Tecumseh Sherman, Admiral Farragut, and "Swedish Nightingale" Jennie Lind, who stayed at their home. Mrs. Martin died there at age 84, surrounded by her loved ones, and was buried here in the Throop-Martin plot. Her husband, who had predeceased her 44 years earlier, is interred in East Avon Cemetery in East Avon, NY.
