Daughter of Edward Hathcock of Northampton Co., NC. Thomas Hathcock her brother. Thomas moved to Richmond County between 1769 and 1778 when it was still Anson County. This area is likely Scotland County at this time (2002) Source: Mary Norton Doggett and Douglas W. Hathcock

Martha married James Norton before 26 November 1753 when James received a deed of gift from his father-in-law. James and Martha sold this land on 2 April 1757. They were still in Northampton County on 23 August 1779 when James Norton, Sr., Martha, and (their children?) James, Jr., and Keziah Norton sold their remaining 250 acres in Northampton County [DB 2:129, 392; 6:363]. James Norton, Sr., was head of a Richmond County, North Carolina household of 4 white males and 3 white females in 1790 living nearby Thomas Hathcock [NC:46].442
