    Notes 
    • Martha‚Äôs burial record of 1866 states she was buried in Pottersfield cemetery. Of the two Potters Fields in Galveston (Confederate & Black), the date of her death (1866) suggests she was buried in Confederate Pottersfield. After the 1900 hurricane & flood, this cemetery was covered by Oleander Cemetery. If she ever had a headstone, it's unlikely it would still exist, as no family resided in Galveston after her death.
