On the 1910 census Martha is a widow, with one daughter, plus newly married son "Ramon" and wife Eunice living with her. Andrew probably died too early to show up on the above dth idx.

1920 census Polk Co, TX (where Martha died) she is living with her married daughter Dola and her husband Crawford Hamilton.

By 1930 Crawford and Dola are back in Rusk Co, TX.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
