Martha was the first wife of Samuel Adams, sister of Amelia Weatherall Townsend. Cousin to Ina Saxon and Lyle Saxon. According to our family "legend", she died of yellow fever, having contracted it on a trip to New Orleans. She is buried in an unmarked grave in the old Wetumpka cemetery (unmarked due to looters that were prevalent in the post-war south). Great-granddaughter of Capt. Lewis Saxon.
