"Sleep on dear mother, peaceful be thy rest. 

Thou art gone to bask in the joys of the blest."

Susannah was my paternal 3rd great grandmother. She was born in Lee Co., Virginia to Jacob and Mary Grabeel. Susannah married James Monroe Martin on March 30, 1842 in Claiborne Co., Tennessee. The Martins settled in Pulaski Co., Kentucky between 1857 and 1859. They had 10 children: John, Lucinda Jane, Mary, Catherine, Nancy Eliza, William Franklin, Ursula Ann, Sarah Nelson, Rebecca Frances and James Daniel Sherman.
