Martha A. Gardner was born on November 30, 1836, died May 30, 1918 in Gloster, Mississippi, and is buried in a Cemetery in Gloster, Mississippi.
In our family, her story is told as this. She was courted and proposed to by a Texas Beau and future Vice President of the USA, before she married her love, Hansford Jones McGehee. The VP said, " Where McGehee has nickels, I'll have Dollars!" She loved and married McGehee anyway. The future Vice President has a Texas Park named for him in Texas, but I have forgotten the name.
Does anyone know the V.P.'s name?
Also does anyone have her Gardner family lineage? Who was her parents?
