Birth: May 23, 1867
Jefferson County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 20, 1919
Butler County
Pennsylvania, USA

The 1870 census for Warsaw Twp, Jefferson Co, says her name is Martha E. She was orphaned at a few weeks before her 5th birthday. The family that raised her appears to have changed her name to Bertha Elizabeth. To add to that, my father told us she was Martha Elizabeth "But they called her "Bertha".

The 1880 census shows Bertha living with her 1st cousin once removed - Harriet (Smith) married to John N Allison.

Bertha's death certificate says she is buried in "Highland Cemetery" in No. Washington Twp, PA. However research has not shown a Highland cemetery in Butler Co. My father said she was buried in potters field in Mt. Varnum cemetery which is in North Washington Twp.
