Marthe is my great great grandmother. She was born in the village of Ogeu les bains in France.
One thing I have found interesting about researching French women is that as early as 1800 they all have occupations listed in official records. It’s something I am not used to seeing in other localities until 1900. In this case, Marthe was a cultivatrice, or farmer. Her husband was as well.
Marthe’s life was a short one. She died at the age of 29.
