She married Thomas “Jeff” Jacobs and they lived in Winchester and raised their 10 children. Jeff died in 1933 and Martha was 90 years old when she died in 1965. They are both buried in the local cemetery. Their first child was Edward born in 1892 when Martha was 17. He graduated from Winchester H. S. in 1909 .
