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”.
http://bullochhall.org/index.html 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."
