  • Notes 
    • According to Dan Stevenson, Dan.Stevenson@cobham.com, in his www.findagrave.com memorial for Martha (Memorial # 61917559):

      "Martha was born at Haw Creek Township, Bartholomew County, Indiana, the sixth of nine known children of Christian Ludwig (went by Lewis) Rominger (1806-1885) and Elizabeth Hyre (Hier?) (1807-1896) Rominger.

      "Martha married Charles H. Hill (1837-1903) on 24 Dec 1857 in either Indiana or Davis County, Iowa. Martha and Charles were the parents of ten children, of whom six are known, all of whom lived to maturity. There were five boys and one girl among the six. All six were still living when Martha died in 1912. The first three of the six were born at Bloomfield, Davis County, Iowa (1) Paschael Mayme Hill; 2) Estus (female) Hill and 3) Elta M. Hill. The fourth child, Charles Hill was born at Carthage, Jasper County, Missouri in 1871. The fifth child, Albert Hill was born at Fort Smith, Sebastian County, Arkansas. The sixth and final child, George W. Hill was born at Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon. In 1880 the parents and first five living children (Charles a lumber dealer) were living at Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon. Charles was the first major of the city (now part of Portland) of Albina, Multnomah County, Oregon. In 1900 the parents and three of the children (Charles listed as a real estate agent) were still living in Portland. Martha said she was the mother of ten, six living."
