Martha Newton Wilcox, 1836-1864

Martha Ellen Newton was born on February 2, 1836, to Daniel Newton and Eunice Clemons Newton. Martha's parents were early settlers of what is now Erie County, Ohio. On January 12, 1859, Martha Newton married Rollin M. Wilcox, a Sandusky businessman. A daughter named Jessie was born to Rollin M. and Martha Newton Wilcox in 1862. Sadly, Martha Newton Wilcox died before she was age 30, on September 23, 1864, when her daughter Jessie was quite young. Martha Newton Wilcox was buried in the Wilcox family lot at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery.
