|Elizabeth "Betsy" Martin, according to her obituary, died in Cerro Gordo, IL. She had suffered for some months before her death at 49, but the obituary was not specific. It is unknown what she was doing in Cerro Gordo, as her family lived in DeWitt Co. Her daughter Margaret would later live in Cerro Gordo with her husband, John Smith, but she would not be married for another 2 years after Betsy's death.|
While uneducated, she was apparently quite intelligent, very well-loved by her family and friends, was quite the humanitarian, and loved good conversation and discourse.
