Martha "Jane" married James Monroe Baker November 4, 1877 in Dade County, Missouri.

Missouri death certificate records say Martha Jane was buried at Shiloh Cemetery on May 28, 1936. She died in North Morgan township, Dade County, I believe at the home of her daughter Clossie Baker Carns who signed the death certificate. Her husband James shares a stone with their daughter Chloe.

Their child listed in the 1880 census is Mary E age 1. Children listed in 1900 Census include Chloe E born Jan, 1889; George born Aug, 1891; Annie J born Jan, 1893; and Ira, born Jan, 1897.

Martha Jane and James were the parents of 11 children:
Mary Estella "Stella" b. Sep 20, 1878 m. James Alphas Martin
Walter A. b. Aug 16, 1880
Clossie Elender b. Mar 31,1882 m. John Alvis Carns

Ira Ashell b. Jan 31, 1897 m. Arzetta Graham
Hazel Evelyn b. Nov 20, 1901 m. Cecil Reuben Guinn and Nova B. Beisley.

These birth dates were taken from a list written by Hazel. The dates for Roy and Dell are reversed from the information that appears on the stone.

Walter, Clarence, Roy, and Dell died as infants. Chloe died at age 19.
