Elizabeth Shaw was born in 1848 in Ballymaconnell, County Down, Ireland. Her early years were on the family farm, in this area just east of the town of Bangor (it is now a part of the housing developments of that City). Farms in this area have soil that supports a variety of crops.

About 1870, in her early 20’s, she emigrated with others from the area, to the United States. Her destiny, and that of many others of County Down farming heritage, turned to the great state of Nebraska which was open for homesteading at the time of her arrival. On November 29, 1873 she was united in marriage to James Martin. To this union were born nine children:

Robert, William, Mary, Mrs. Merrill Nash, Mrs. Fred Nash, Hugh, Mrs. Dave Mearns, Della, who died in infancy, and Mrs. Rose Elizabeth Hedrick Grotberg (updated to reflect her second marriage, after the tragic accidental death of her brief first marriage)
