About Martha A. Abbott

Martha A. Abbott was born in Apr 1867 in MO. Both her parents were born in Ohio according to the 1900 Federal Census. But the 1910 Federal Census cites Tennessee as the birthplace of her father and Indiana as her mother's. M. A. Abott appeared on the census of 12 Aug 1870 in Liberty Township, Putnam County, MO, in the household of N. T. Abott. Wm. T. Abbott, G. M. Abott, B. Abott, M. Abott, and P. S. Abott were also listed as members of the household. In the United States Federal Census of 1870, she was listed as M. A. Abott. She appeared on the census of 20 Jun 1880 at Liberty Township, Putnam County, MO, in the household of her father, Nepolian B. Abbott, and her mother, Martha B. Abbott. On circa 1882, Martha A. Abbott married William W. Barnhouse, son of George Barnhouse and Rose Ann McCune. On 19 Jun 1900, Martha A. Abbott had six children but only three survived. In the census of 1900, Martha A. Barnhouse and her husband, William W. Barnhouse, with their children, Ira Estel, Stella M. and Norma, appeared at Liberty Township, Putnam County, MO. The family owned their farm, but it was mortgaged. Charles Barnhouse, Caroline Barnhouse, Alvin J. Barnhouse and Anna Barnhouse appeared on the census of 19 Jun 1900 as a neighbor of William W. Barnhouse. Records suggest that William W. Barnhouse had passed away and Martha A. Abbott was widowed before 27 Apr 1910. On 27 Apr 1910, Martha A. Abbott had eight children but only three were still living. Martha A. Barnhouse appeared on the census of 27 Apr 1910 at West Elm, Putnam County, MO. In the household were her children, Norma Barnhouse, Edith F. Barnhouse and Lee V. Barnhouse. The family owned their farm but it was mortgaged. She was an employer and farm operator with her own farm (see 1910 United States Federal Census Farm Schedule 96) on 27 Apr 1910. As of 1 Jul 1956, she was also known as Martha A. Abbott.
