Birth: Apr., 1852
Washington County
Virginia, USA
Death: May 29, 1924

Daughter of William Hubbard Griffin and Wilmerth "Wilmer" MNU. Sister to Mr. William Griffin, Mr. Joseph Griffin, Elizabeth Griffin, Susan Griffin, Mary "Polly" Jane Griffin, Mr. Daniel Griffin, Mr. Smith Griffin, Mr. John G. Griffin, Mr. Ransom Griffin, Margaret M. Griffin, Mr. George C. Griffin, Mr. Cotare M. Griffin.

Martha married Reverend James Monroe Shupe on 22 Oct 1872 in Gate City, Scott County, Virginia. Together they had 15 children as follows: Susan V. Shupe, Mr. Smith W. A. Shupe, Rachel Catherine Shupe, Rebecca "Becca" Jane Shupe, Anna "Annie" Lee Shupe, Mary E. Shupe, Sally Shupe, Sarah Shupe, Rosa "Rosie" Amanda Shupe, Mr. Smith W. Shupe, Mr. James Nelson Shupe, Mr. George Calvin Gilmer Shupe, Mr. John Allen Shupe, Mr. Henry Hezekiah "Kier" Shupe, and Mr. James M. Shupe.

Burial information was provided to me by Dianna Taylor (#47310976). Dianna obtained this information from Billy Pat Osborne, son of Myrtle Wells & William Patton Osborne and grandson of Hezekiah & Rachel Shupe Wells.

This is either my ggg grandmother or ggg grand aunt. That has yet to be determined.

Also I would like to add that Martha Ellen Griffin was Native American. Blackfoot I believe.She did all the chores and farm work while Rev. James traveled to preach the word.
