Haven’t had much luck with tracking down Martha Cornish after 1901 census in Toronto where she was with sister Ellen/Nellie Newsom.
Did find a Martha Cornish in Oshawa on 1958 Voter’s list at at 45 Arlington Avenue. Ususally if the women were married there was a Mrs in front of their names so this could be your Martha except she would be in her 90s.
Didn’t find anything on her immigrating to the US with the Newsoms.
Herbert Lewis Newsom crossed border at Buffalo, b 21 Mar 1872 at Whitby on 1 Aug 1908.

Try this site for cemeteries in Whitby/Oshawa area.

Also this site

Births are only released to 1914; deaths to 1939 and marriages to 1929.
Last census released was 1911. 1921 census is suppose to be out soon.
Think that is about all I can find on your Cornish name.
