Piute County
Utah, USA
Death: Oct. 31, 1957

Martha was born in a dugout home with dirt floor, sod roof and a grass and leaves mattress. Her parents had been sent by Brigham Young to settle a place called Circleville or Circle Valley, Utah. When she was 12 days old, her mother had to pack up the children and move to Ephraim because of Indian troubles. Because of the hard times, she grew up in the hardest of circumstances, receiving very little formal education. When she was 6 years old, her father took off, never to return. She hired herself out for many different menial jobs. One of her jobs was working as house help for Elder George Q. Cannon. When she was 19 she met James Peter Anderson. The next year they married. (He was also known as James T. Anderson)
A short time after they married, they moved to what was known as "Crossed Sanpitch" while James tried his hand at raising sheep. After a few years, James broke his leg very badly which required over a year of recovery. They had to give up raising sheep and then tried their hand at farming. That didn't turn out well so they moved back to Ephraim. They would later move to Castle Gate then to Spring Glen. After a few short years they moved to Lakeview, Utah then to Richfield. After many failed attempts at farming, they then moved to Ogden, Utah so James could work for the Railroad.
They did well in Ogden and lived there until James died in 1929. After James' passing, she went to live in Salt Lake City where she lived until her passing in 1957.
