Hi Rayedene,
I first thought Martha's middle name was Elizabeth because my great grandfather, her son Arthur Charles Jackson listed his mother as Martha Elizabeth Bush on his Social Security Application form. I now believe her name to be Martha "Mattie" R. Bush Jackson.

You mentioned that you located the death of Mattie Jackson as 18 May 1928 in Craighead Co., AR. I have that death certificate. I believe that is her...She would be my great-great grandmother. The informant on the death certificate is John Robinson. She had a son-in-law named John Robinson who lived in Black Oak, Craighead Co. at that time. Her daughter that was married to John Robinson was named Virginia Gertrude Jackson Robinson. She went by Gertie most of the time.

You had mentioned that there is someone who is a direct descendent of Rebecca Hanna and her daughter Florence Elizabeth Barnes. Would that be Betty Cavner? If so, I have corresponded with her. She is a lovely lady.

Thank you for the reply!
