Her maiden name was actually Martha Crook. She apparently remarried shortly after Richard's death. First to John Weymeyer, who died before 30 aug 1875, based on Vernon Co. court records that show Martha serving as the administrator of his estate and selling property listed in his name. Her third marriage was to Andrew T. STaley who she married in Vernon County around 1879, and who died, based on property sales, before July, 1881. Martha A. died in 1883 in Metz, Vernon County, Missouri. Her burial site is in Martin Cemetery, Nowata County, Oklahoma. 2
