9. Martha Catharine2 Linn (Andrew1)(189) was born circa 1808. Martha died after 1880.

She married John Crispen.(190) John was born in Lycoming Co., PA August 9, 1806. John(191) was the son of Mr. Nicholas Crispen and Elizabeth Unknown. John died December 14, 1852 in Mill Hall, PA, at 46 years of age. His body was interred in Bald Eagle, Clinton Co., PA. John's occupation: Sawyer.

John died of rupture of pulmonary arteries caused by cough and is buried in Brown Cemetery (01409:4). __________________________Further Research Required Sources 00947 and 01409:4 list John Crispen's birth month as July while source 00838 notes it as August.

Mr. Lingle notes that in 1840, John and Martha were the parents of two sons and two daughters (00836:5). The family of John and Martha was listed as new to Beech Creek during the 1830s (00853:108). __________________________Further Research Required Sources 00947 and 01409:4 list her birth year as circa 1811 while it was deducted from source 00838 that her birth year may have been circa 1808. It is the opinion of Brian Linn that 00947 & 01409:4 are the more reliable but a definitive answer should be obtained. Martha was listed in 1860, 1870 and 1880 census records as a widow and the 1880 census lists her as Catherine Crispen in Mill Hall, Pennsylvania (01409:4). A copy of each census record should be obtained. Rebecca Herring, the first wife of Daniel Herring may have been a daughter of John and Martha and she died on April 11, 1874 at the age of 44 (00836:5). No other sources located to date have supported this possibility but it must be examined.
