Martha's 1st husband was Roy "Leonard" Hampton. They were married from 1916-1929 and had 2 children; Robert Hampton and Pearle Hampton Orland. They traveled the country as her husband and his brother got jobs painting smoke stacks and water towers, racing moter cycles in a dome, and then working as a steel worker on tall skyscrapers over 50 stories high! She never knew were they'd be from day to day it seemed, or if he'd be alive the next day for that mater. She probley had her fill of that wanting a less stressful life and was divorced in 29. Later in 1930 she married Charles "Lowell" Hamacher. He believed in living in one place, Escanaba, Michagan, were he had been all his life! Also working one job. Quite different from Leonard who couldn't stay put to beat the band. It was in Leonard's spirit to be free like a bird. He had the wonder lust and was a thrill seeker to boot, with no fear. I'm sure she knew it would catch up to him sooner or later and then she'd be in a spot. Things were bad enough with the depression going on. She had a history later in life of heart problems and finnally succumed to it when she was only 47. Her grand daughter Sylvia (Robert's daughter) is the spitting immage of her. - Taken from Family History by Bob Hampton.
