I am trying to find out the name of Joseph RUTHERFORD's wife, mother of Carmelita (Carmel, Martha)RUTHERFORD BEAN MARTIN. Carmelita was left with the Joseph DURST family, near Nacogdoches, Texas when her father went to fight in the Battle of Bexar and then at the Battle of the Alamo. Carmelita was only about 9 years old when her father was killed. Her mother's name was lost to time. Since I have been unable to find any records that show her mothers death, or any mention of her, in Nacogdoches Co., I believe she had already died before they reached Texas. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
