Margaret Elizabeth Doub Martin
Birth: Jun. 26, 1851
Forsyth County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Feb. 2, 1892
Kansas, USA

Margaret Elizabeth Doub was the daughter of Rev. David Wesley Doub and Ruhamer Mercy Banner. She married John Jarvis Martin on July 16, 1874 in Old Town, Forsyth County, North Carolina.

Shortly after their marriage, they moved to Indiana, near Terra Haute. They had two children there, Frank and Stacy. Both died in infancy and are buried there.

They then moved to Butler County, Kansas. Their next child, William Wesley, was born in a log cabin just across the river from what was later called Bodarc, Kansas. John bought an 80 acre farm about two miles west and north of Bodarc and their next two children, Cornelia Anetta - called Nelia and Joseph Banner were born there.

They had sold that place and were planning to go to western Kansas but "Joe's" birth delayed them. In the fall, they went ahead with the move but they were held up by a big snow storm at Mullinville, Kansas. Margaret and the children stayed in a hotel while John stayed with the team and wagon in a tent. They settled near Syracuse but were only able to raise poor crops so they came back to Butler County in 1889.

Their son, John Isaac was born in 1890. Their last child, Charlie was born January 21, 1892. Margaret would not recover from the birth and died just weeks later. A "Mrs. Ferguson" was hired to take care of Charlie. The family moved to Sedalia, Missouri to be near John's sister. The baby was brought out to them in August 1892 but he died just a month later. I do not know where he is buried.
