After Thomas Jefferson's death and Thomas Jefferson Randolph's ruin and self-imposed exile, the expected sale of Martha Jefferson Randolph's beloved home forced Martha to weigh her options. Money was a constant problem that Martha and her relatives addressed and she pondered new ways to generate income for her family. Five years after her father's death, Martha lived in Boston, Cambridge, Albermarle, and Washington, but she never had a home that was entirely her own.
