Remembering Martha Scott

July 2, 2015

Martha ScottToday is the anniversary of the death of one of my maternal second great-grandmothers, Martha Scott. Martha was the eighth of twelve children born to Samuel Scott and Abigail Mills. She was born on 13 September 1819 in St. Claire, Butler County, Ohio after her parents had moved there from Lycoming, Pennsylvania. Martha’s mother, Abigail, died in Ohio on 15 July, 1843 when Martha was just 23 years old. Soon after that, Martha moved with her father to Cassville in Grant County, Wisconsin. They were in Cassville on 26 November, 1844 when Samuel Scott died. Just a few weeks later, on 5 December, 1844, Martha married Henry Fralick in Cassville, Grant County, Wisconsin. The couple bore ten children, eight of whom survived to adulthood. Two sons, Jeremiah and Jerome, died in childhood. Martha died on 2 July, 1880, at the age of 60. Their farm had a Cassville address,  and was owned and operated by her husband Henry. Their youngest child was about 18 years old at the time.

    My great great Grandfather was James M. Scott, Martha’s older brother. I think Samuel lived with him and his family in Cassville. James and his entire family, children, grand children, and a sister came by wagon train to California in 1852
