Martha Ann Hill Grant

Birth: unknown

Death: unknown
Jackson County

The date of birth on the stone, is most likely incorrect. All documents for Martha Ann Hill, point to her birth between 1837-1838. Her marriage certificate shows her age as 20, in 1857. Also, the date of 1830, would have made her parents 12-13 years old.

I suspect the children were unaware of her birth year, and estimated with a round number, which also could have happened for their father, Edward W. Grant.

The most puzzling date, is that of her death. The 1880 census, shows her alive and well, living with her husband and children. So why the date of 1872? Could it be that her marker was placed by her grandchildren, who were guessing at both the birth and death dates? (See the picture of the 1880 census)

A mystery for sure!
