Martha Bulloch was a southern lady, born in Hartford, Connecticut.

Martha married on Dec. 22, 1853 to Theodore "Thee" Roosevelt Sr. [1831-1878]

Their four children: Anna R. Cowles (Jan. 18, 1855 - Aug. 25, 1931)- married William Cowles, Theodore "T.R." Roosevelt Jr. (1858 - 1919) - 26th President of the United States Elliott Roosevelt (1860 - 1894) - father of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt - she married FDR, 32nd President of the United States Corinne R. Robinson (Sept. 27, 1861 - Feb. 17, 1933) - married Douglas Robinson

Martha "Mittie" Bulloch Roosevelt died on Feb. 14, 1884 in the same house and the 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”.

Sources says "The summer of 1835 found the Bulloch family living in Hartford, Connecticut ... on July 8, 1835, a daughter named Martha (Mittie) was born. The family remained in the North until shortly before their move to upcountry Georgia."
