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.
