Martha was the daughter of Joseph & Martha (nicknamed Patsy or Patsey) Hiler. Patsey was the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Tiffin. Thomas served in the Revolutionary War from Caswell Co., NC. He appeared on a pensioners list in Pittsylvania Co., VA around 1835.
Joseph & Martha (Patsey) were married July 24, 1804 in Pittsylvania Co. They both died in 1853: Martha in Jan. and Joseph in Oct. or Nov. Their son, Thomas A. Hiler supplied the information for both of them for the death register. Parentage was not known.
Joseph's will was probated in Nov. 1853.
Your Martha had a sister, Elizabeth, who married Mead, (or Meads), Turpin who appeared in the Stokes Co. census records also. The remaining siblings seemed to have stayed in Pittsylvania Co. In the earlier census records they appeared in "The Southern District," with the serving post office as Chatham.
Another sister, Susan P. Hiler, married John M. Gibbs. Apparently, Joseph didn't approve of his son-in-law as can be seen by comments in his will.
Two other sisters, Margarent and Nancy apparently never married.
Your Martha had five brothers also. My research comes up with the names of a total of ten children, but the 1830 & 1840 census suggests eleven.
I have additional info with more specifics if you need it.
