Martha J. Prentiss Bechstein
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 11, 1868
Henry County
Ohio, USA
Death: Jun. 26, 1946

Martha married John M. Bechstein 25 Dec 1894 in Henry Co., OH.

Martha Prentiss was a school teacher, and she had taught the district school near the Bechstein home. In 1894, however, she was teaching a school near her own home and so after her marriage she continued to live at home and she taught the school until the end of the term, while her husband lived with his parents. When the school term finished Mrs. Bechstein joined her husband at his father's home and then in July they moved into their own home.

They celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1944. The celebration was necessarily quiet as Mrs. Bechstein's health was very poor.
