Martha Richey was born 1770 in Ireland to John Richey (1727-1776) and Margaret Unknown . Ancestors are from Ireland.
It is believed that she came with her family from Ireland and was too young (under age 12) to receive her own land grant like her older siblings (putting her birth between 1760-1771). It is believed that she and Robert, allowed their father to get additional acrerage in his land grant.
Only appears in her father's will, so she was still alive in 1776. Have not found her name in any other document yet.
