Martha was the daughter of Col. James Upshaw and Suca Jones, probably the youngest of their known children. She married Francis Buckner and they had a number of children. The date of her birth is not known for certain, but probably sometime around 1760 since her first child was born in 1780. The date of her death is something of a mystery, but it was certainly after 1800.
