Martha was buried either in the Wheeler Cemetery or a small unknown cemetery (maybe Harlan Cemetery). In 1990, this tombstone along with the one for James Wheeler and Catharine Wheeler were sitting on Dick Spencer's front porch. Dick lives on a farm next to the Wheeler Cemetery in Macoupin County, IL.

{The book "History and Genealogy of the Harlan Family" by Alpheus H. Harlan, page 272 states she was born November 23, 1818 and she died Nov. 11, 1852 and is buried "in Wheeler Family Burying ground." If her birth date is calculated from her tombstone - she was born January 8, 1828.}
