Martha Ellen Abe was the (166)first child born to John Adam Abe and Margaret (Fulk) Abe. Mineral County West Virginia records list her birth as September 16, 1867.
Her life was very short as she (166)died on May 25, 1868. The death record says nine months but a quick calculation shows her to be 8 months at the time of death. The cause of death is listed as "Fits" (now commonly known as seizures).
Her burial place cannot be confirmed but a grave with a small unmarked stone is found beside her father in the Abe Cemetery.
