Bless her heart and memory, my Great Grandmother Martha Jane Marley Carroll's name has been thrown out there on the World Wide Web, dug up in every Cemetery Listing in Texas and scrutinized in every photo of her in existence...or at least those in my possession.
Here she is in about 1905. I know this is her.. as I was Tipped Off by the handwriting on the back of the photo which says, "me, Mrs. M J Carroll". So into the 'For Sure's Stack' and posted in The Family Tree on ancestry.com where all of a sudden...
TIPS GALORE in the form of a Fluttering Green Leaf!
I don't know about you, but I take GREEN as meaning Go For It, and HINT as a Fact Jack! I so need some FACTS on 'Where Art Thou Now Martha Jane'.
Here she is about 1952 when I last saw her.
Yep, I actually have seen her and probably said Hi and Bye all in the same breath.
I was much more interested at the age of 5 in riding bikes with a hunky older cousin.
Now I am older and wiser and without any Family Members that know where and when Martha Jane Marley Carroll died....what's one more Web OutThere name to crawl all over...maybe it will lead to a Tip or at least another Fluttery Green Leaf.
Since becoming a member of GeneaBloggers, the search for MJ's Vital Info has been renewed with a Slew of Tips. Geneablogger and Tuesday Tip contributor Random Mews' post on How To Locate Sisters and Daughters has a Ton of Tips that I'm hoping will shed some light on Martha Jane Marley Carroll...(once more for the crawlers).
In the meantime if you see anyone or any photos resembling this couple, I'd appreciate a ShoutOut!
That's a Fact Jack!
