Martha's parents were Peter & Elizabeth J. Price. Martha had seven children, with only five living to adulthood: Floyd, Howard Delbert, Dessie Leona, William Homer,Minnid Florence, Mary Ann & Peter.
This is a sad story, but it gives a little insight as to how bad things were back then.
Martha was my dad's grandmother, he remembers going to the funeral. It had been raining for days. He remembers them having to put large rocks atop the casket to get it to sink into the water, so they could cover the grave.
