About Martha Lemasters

Resources: https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=9409331 Martha Wooten married Josiah Tanner and they had between 13 and 17 children! It is recorded in the same record that they had 13 children, and two sentences later, says they had 17. I guess they weren't reading what they were typing out. That, or maybe that 4 of their children had passed away.

She remarried when she was 70 years old to Abraham LeMasters. He and his first wife had 10 of their own children. When Daniel and Keziah died young, it looks like she took care of her grandchildren, moved them to Indiana with her.
