Martha Jones Tolleth

My great great great grandmother Mrs. Martha Jones Tolleth, died December 31 age 82 years 11 months and 22 days.
Mrs. Tolleth was born in Cayuga county N.Y. January 8 1825, and was carried westward by the tide of immigration to share in the experience of pioneer life. She has outlived three husbands and has usually made her home with her daughter Mrs. Frank Fanning of the east divide, since her last husband’s death. She had just returned from Wisconsin where she has one child residing and again takes up her home with Mr. Fanning. A _________ prior to her death she hurt her hand slightly, and from which it was thought she had recovered. On Saturday before her death it became apparent that the injury, though slight, was threatening to become serious. A physician was summoned and it was pronounced blood poisoning which despite the best of care and attention ended her life at 10 o’clock p.m. the last day of the old year thus enabling her to begin the New Year with her Maker.
She leaves two sons and two daughters,many relatives and a host of acquaintances and friends, to mourn her loss.53258866_127569990437
