Madness Monday: Martha Williams Saul is my husband’s great-great grandmother.

Martha H. Williams Saul was born in Virginia about 1827 and married Albert G. Saul on 5 Oct 1846 in Franklin Co., Virginia. They had five known children. Before the Civil War, they appeared to be relatively prosperous, living at Oak Level, Henry, Virginia, in the 1860 census.

By 1870, Martha is a patient in at the Western Lunatic Asylum, Staunton, Augusta, Virginia, and dies before 1880.
