Generation No. 2

2. MARTHA A.2 SWEET (BENJAMIN P.1) was born March 12, 1833 in New Jersey, and died November 07, 1926 in Warren, Warren Co., PA. She married (1) WILLIAM B. SOLIDAY 1853, son of DANIEL SALLADE and HETTY. He was born 1827 in Waggoner, Centre Co., PA, and died September 28, 1893 in Blue Earth Co., Minnesota. She married (2) JAMES P. OWENS 1901 in Warren, PA. He was born Abt. 1849 in Ireland, and died 1923 in Warren, PA.

Notes for MARTHA A. SWEET:
There is an Elizabeth Sweet living with Martha and John in the 1850 and 1860 census. Born about 1844. This is probably her younger sister.

In the 1910 Census, she is listed as 67 years old, but I believe she was actually 77.

Died in her daughter Ida Wolf's house in Warren Pa.

Mary Owens is not her daughter.

Martha moved to Warren, Pa in October 1893 after the death of her husband in Minnesota.

James Owens is considered third Husband. Not sure who 2nd husband was. My Aunt said her second husband was Emerson, and there were a lot of them living in Titusville, however, I think that was her oldest son DeWitt, who changed his name to Emerson for no unknown reason.
