Andrew died in 1907 of pnemonia. Maud was very shy and very beautiful woman. She worked in their general store and share cropped in the fields but it was said she was so shy she'd rather work in the field's than in the store. Marcus met Maud when he came to pay his bill at the General Store after the death of Andrew Kirkpatrick, he was from TX. They kept in touch through letters and he asked her to marry him in a letter. He later came to OK from TX on Saturday, December 21st to marry Maud. Marcus's mother asked him not to get married on "Saturday" so they waited until midnight on December 22nd, to preform the ceremony.
