Although the headstone reflects a birth year of 1891, her actual birth date was April 1886 (see 1900 Census Brawley, Scott, Arkansas).
My dad, Alvin W., and Martha's son, put her headstone down using the best info available to him at that time.
As best I can tell, Martha died of influenza during the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919. My dad, Alvin, and his brother, Jim, both told of her getting sick and the doctor recommending they take her to Arizona for better air. She died near Heavner, Oklahoma while enroute. The creeks were up and they couldn't get back to Ritz, so they buried her near her Nix family in Oliver Cemetery.
