Martha's parents were Elijah C. and Rachel Anderson Cochrun. Family notes say Elijah died in 1869, when Martha was 11. Rachel is the head of the household in the 1870 census, and Martha is her only listed child.

About 1876, Martha married Thomas Evans Davis, with whom she had seven children. One son, Heber, born about 1877, apparently died before 1900. The family lived in Lima from at least 1880.

Just over a year after being widowed, Martha fell at her Lima home and broke her hip. Soon she moved to her daughter's home in Cleveland, Ohio, where she could be cared for. Eighteen months later, Martha passed away.
