Arthur died in 1926 and is buried

Marshall, Arkansas. It is said
that Martha possibly married again
and that her husband's surname is
Davis. No records have been found.
Note:From records found, from time
to time, the surname was spelled
"Pruitt", "Prewett" and "Prewitt".
In the 1900 census it was spelled
"Prewit"; in 1910 it was "Pruitt"
and in the 1930 census it was
spelled "Pruit". Also, in the
U. S. and International Marriage

was the original spelling when the
