  • Name Martin, Martha Matilda   [1
    Born 21 Sep 1792  Rensselaerville, Albany, New York Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Matilda's birth date calculated from data in her death record. Her birth place was reported as Utica, New York on her son James death certificate by her granddaughter Henrietta, but Henrietta may have confused her grandmother's birthplace with her grandfather's birthplace. Utica also seems unlikely because Matilda's parents lived in Rensselaerville, New York at the time she was born, and Utica is almost 100 miles from Rensselaerville. I believe Rensselaerville is the most likely place of her birth.

    • Samuel and Silence very likely were married in Lanesborough or a nearby town, although no record has been located yet. Silence's family moved to Lanesborough in 1773 when she was 11, her sister Huldah was married in Lanesborough in 1782, and Silence's son Silas was born in Massachusetts in 1783.
