Agnes Martin Hunter, the daughter of Thomas Martin and Mary Bathgate was born 9 Feb 1831 in Coatbridge Munkland Parish, Scotland and she, like her mother and sister Mary, worked in the Coal mines of Scotland. She was married to Ebenezer Hunter 24 June 1852 at the age of 21.
When they arrived in American Fork [year in 1865] they stayed with grandmother and grandfather Shelly (Mary Bathgate) until their home was built where the road turns as you go to Pleasant Grove. Just below Dan (Don or Done-y) Davis' place and acrost from the old Spathy Home. Here her daughter Hellen was born 23 Oct 1864. On the 11 Feb 1865 they received that wonderful blessing of being married for time and eternity in the Endowment house at Salt Lake City.
I often have thought of Grand Father Ebenezer Hunter he on his death bed, lingered a month, said he was waiting for his wife "Nannie" which was a pet name he had given her. He was waiting for her to come for him. Just before he died he said, "Nannie, I knew you would come"
Agnes Martin Hunter
She was not so beautiful of form or features it is true
If form an Artists vision, or a sculptures eyes could view,
Her tresses were not silky, like the breezes blow about
Her eyes were not the Violet ones, the dreamy blue or brown
Her form not straight or grateful, her name of Great renown
Her dress was not quite up to date, latest styles not known.
But just to meet her was to love her
Just to be with her a joy
She was kind to all the Friendless,
To the wayward girl and boy.
And her face though plain of features,
Wore a look almost devine
For the love she bore to all the world
Made her countenance to shine.
And her smile would cheer the saddest
Smooth the heart so crushed and sore
And to those who really knew her
She was beautiful and more
