Martha Bulloch was a southern lady, born in Georgia. Martha married Theodore Roosevelt Sr. on Dec. 22, 1853.

Their four children: Anna R. Cowles (Jan. 18, 1855 - Aug. 25, 1931)- married William Cowles, Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919), Elliott Roosevelt (1860 - 1894) ---father of Eleanor Roosevelt, and Corinne R. Robinson - married Douglas Robinson (Sept. 27, 1861 - Feb. 17, 1933)

Martha "Mittie" Bulloch Roosevelt also died on Feb. 14, 1884 in the same house/same day as her daughter-in-law, Alice Hathaway Roosvelt(Martha died of typhoid fever). Martha was age 49.

TR described his mother - "My mother, Martha Bulloch, was a sweet, gracious, beautiful Southern woman, a delightful companion and beloved by everybody. She was entirely "unreconstructed" (sympathetic to the Southern Confederate cause) to the day of her death.” Friends described her as “a glowing, quick-witted, narrow-waisted black-haired beauty”.
