Martha Whitlow Abrahams
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 5, 1818
Death: Feb. 8, 1856
Virginia, USA

Martha married Wilcher on 6 February 1838. They had ten children.

Wilcher used the surname in 1838 of Abrahams, but by the 1850 Census the family name was given as Abrams, a name Wilcher used in later years. However, Martha is buried under their original surname, which she may have continued to use until her death.

She died of "Inflammation of the Bowels", per Cemetery records, and is buried in Wilcher's plot. Her marker was raised and repairs begun by the "Friends of Shockoe Hill Cemetery" in March 2015.
