    • John Adam Fillmore Jr and Martha Minerva Calkins
      (This account taken from The Fillmore's, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow by William Rosland Fillmore)
      John Adam Fillmore was born 7 April 1790 at Granville, Addison County, Vermont. The son of John Adam Fillmore and Lydia Ann (no last name known). He was the 7th child in his father's family. He married Martha Minerva Calkins in 1811. They met in Swanton, Franklin County, Vermont on the east shore of Lake Champlain, where his father, as well as the Calkins family had moved at the turn of the century, and had purchased land in 1810. Martha's father was Israel Calkins, who associated so closely with the Fillmore family in the history of Swanton, Franklin County, Vermont.
      Martha Minerva Calkins was born 7 March 1795 at Hebron, Washington County, New York, the daughter of Israel Calkins and his wife, Mary Grigg (or Gregg). She was converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by her son, Daniel. John and Martha were the parents of 10 children, 5 boys and 5 girls. Martha was a kind, patient and loving person; her health was extremely good and God had blessed her with a radiant personality. She was highly respected and loved by her husband, her family and all others with whom she came in daily contact. Problems and trials came to them, but not much sorrow. Martha was the mother of ten children, all who lived to maturity, which was rare in those days, and had families of their own.
      John died 18 August 1850 (at the age of 60 years) at Franklin, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin of cholera and was buried 20 August 1850, without a public funeral on account of the cholera epidemic. He was buried in the Durham Hill Cemetery north of Durham, Waukesha County, Wisconsin.
      When their sons Milan and Daniel left Minnesota in 1859, they left their mother, Martha, who had not yet joined the faith of her sons, but she put her arm around them and said, "God bless and protect you; keep an eye open for me, for I may yet come to Utah." It was some ten years later that this desire was fulfilled. Martha Minerva, in her 75th year was taken to Payson, Utah Territory of Utah by her son (V) Daniel Babcock Fillmore, in 1870, she was baptized July 7, 1870 and endowed and sealed to her husband on 2 October 1871. She spent the last 12 years of her life in his home at 212 South 1st West Street. She had remained a widow. She was sightless for several years. She would sit on the porch in the morning sun, as well as the afternoon shade, and contemplate her blessings and sorrows. She died in Payson, Utah County, Territory of Utah, and Saturday 10 May 1882. She was buried in the City Cemetery, Tuesday, 13 May 1882.
