Martha G McCubbin
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 2, 1886
Kentucky, USA
Death: Apr. 28, 1921
Barren County
Kentucky, USA

Martha McCubbin was the 8th out of 10 children born to William Alfred McCubbin and Alice T McAlister-McCubbin. She lived with her parents for all of her 34 years.
Martha's death certificate is challenging to read; the medical examiner's handwriting leaves a lot of room for individual interpretation. However, after weeks of research and comparisons to various medical terms, I (her great-grand-niece) am fairly certain that her cause of death can be attributed to 'cretinism.' Cretinism is an old term used commonly in the early part of the 20th century to indicate hypothyroidism, caused by a patient's dietary lack of iodine, an essential nutrient.
