Martha Montague Sage
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 15, 1754
Wethersfield
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Mar. 4, 1839
Hartford
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA

Martha married Elisha Sage, 27 Jun 1776, in Cromwell, CT. They had 12 children.

She outlived her husband by many years residing the latter part of her life with her daughter, Lorinda. The book "History and Genealogy of the Montague Family of America," pg. 105, states that she died at her daughter Lorinda's house in Herkimer, NY. The Cromwell Church records (detailed below) indicate that she died "at the city," from which we assume a death location of Hartford, CT.

A great deal more information can be found on Martha's ancestors in the book "History and genealogy of the Montague family of America". Martha was a direct descendant of English royalty including King Henry III.
