Martha Morgan Power
Birth: 1866
Death: 1897

Martha is not in a cemetery. It is just a lone grave at the end of a field on the old Dominguez farm in Gila, New Mexico. I am new to FAG, so I don't know how you go about adding a grave that is not in a cemetery. When I have tried to do it, says I need cemetery name. Good Grief, I guess they think everyone lives in a city!

Martha was Toms Sr wife. She was killed when a roof rafter in a new dugout home broke and collapsed. It fell on her and killed her outright. She was buried and the family moved to Arizona. (JLB)

A fellow by the name of Reede had leased part of the Power place at Gila, NM and built a house called a dugout. It had a roof made of heavy logs, covered with brush and grass and covered with dirt. The day he finished his house, Martha and grandma Power went over to look at it, taking a few things to dress it up a little. They had been in it just a few minutes when the ridge pole broke, it caved in and covered the women with dirt. Grandma Power was able to get out and ran for help, but Martha was dead when they got her out. My mother in law told us of this incident a long time ago.

Martha Morgan was my great grandmother's sister. I am in a unique situation in that my grandmother was a cousin to Tom & John, and my grandfather (by marriage) was a Wootan, and his relatives were among the lawmen. I grew up hearing about this tragic sto...(Read more)
