Martha b. abt 1865
There is a death certificate for a Bessie Waters, daughter of Martha Todd and Houston Groover, both of whom were born in Tattnall Co. I don't have any other corroborating evidence to suggest that this is the same Martha as there are a number of Martha Todds, but the DOB according to the censuses where they are found in is about right, so this is something to consider. Houston Groover also goes by the name Daniel.
