I'm looking for anyone who might know anything about my great aunt, Martha J. Compton, born 27 APR 1860 in Paulding County, GA. Her family moved to Van Zandt County, TX, where we assume she was married before 1880.

A letter in the family said that she ran an ice company in Harlingen. We assume that she died before 1937.

She had a twin sister named Mary Delane Compton Follis who lived in Hopkins County.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
