About Martha Lane

According to her husband's autobiography, she was born 18 October 1816 in Freshwater, Isle of Wight, England. The Isle of Wight Consolidated Parish Register Index, 1539-1858 lists her baptism (christening) as Freshwater 26 December 1816 daughter of William & Elizabeth Lane, Weston, Farmer. She married William Theobald 14 July 1842. Marriage solemnized at the Parish Church in the Parish of Freshwater in the county of Southhampton as stated in their marriage record. Some believe her to be buried in Toquerville, Utah, but she was buried September 1860 in the Salt Lake City Cemetery, Salt Lake City, Utah before her husband, William Theobald, moved to Duncan's Retreat and then to Toquerville with their children. He had remarried before leaving Salt Lake City to Elizabeth Olds Uren. Unfortunately the sexton's record for the Salt Lake City Cemetery does not give her first name. Two of her children are also bruied on either side of her. They are listed on the 1860 Census but had already died by then. I believe the census taker said to list all of the children, so they did. The sexton records for the children: Martha Theobald, dauther of Will & Martha was born 20 January 1853 and died 9 January 1858. John Theobald, son of Will & Martha was born G.S. Lake Desert 14 Feruary 1855 and died 27 September 1855.
