Are you sure of the year of death for Martha? This looks like her, the informant was Lula Hays, probably daughter Lucretia. Note both are buried in Montgomery Co, TX. Also, the father of this "Marther" is a Morgan, that's why she shows up with maiden name of Morgan on DC for Lucretia, too.

Well, this might not be the correct Rhoda, I tracked her through census records, 1910 says only married one time. She and husband James are in Anderson Co, TX in 1900 and the following censuses in Cherokee Co, TX.

You probably know which name Rhoda was using when she died and maybe you can find her.

I'm not related, mostly trying to let people know about the TX Dth Idx on the FamilySearch Pilot Program.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
