This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in 1861 Avondale, a suburb of Cincinnati, Martha Scudder was the daughter of John M. Scudder, a physician.  She enrolled in the Cincinnati School of Design and then studied in Europe.  Returning to Cincinnati, she joined the Etching Club where she met fellow member John Henry Twachtman.  They married in 1881, and honeymooned in Europe.  Their first child, J. Alden Twachtman, was born a year later, 1882.  That same year, she exhibited a work, Pomegranates, at the National Academy of Design, giving an address of 80 East Washington Square, New York.

In 1883, Martha and her husband went to Paris, staying until 1888. Their daughter, Marjorie, was born in 1884.  Then the family lived briefly in Chicago before settling in rural Greenwich, Connecticut. 

Four etchings by Martha Scudder Twachtman were exhibited at the Boston Museum in 1887, with one of them dated 1880 and titled A Ruin on Mill Creek, Cincinnati.  She also exhibited work at the Union League Club in New York and the New York Etching Club.  Her last exhibition entries were in 1893, indicating that she had put aside her art career. 

She died December 9, 1935 in Greenwich.
