Said to have died of childbed fever. [This really doesn't seem to agree with the birth of daughter Jennie who was by then about seven months old, perhaps just tradition.] Buried Brookline Cemetery.

1900 Census. Brookline Twp, Greene Co MO.
Children living with their Perkins relatives.
Two daughters, Ollie 16, and Jennie 7, lived with their grandparents.
Son Eddie, age 10, lived next door with his uncle William H. Perkins and family.


Martha has two memorials on FindAGrave - the one at Brookline Cemetery has a picture of the marker so it is surely correct. There is no link from it to her husband, Rev. Stephens.
