Martha Duty is Martha Ann Williams, oldest child of Mathew Williams and Elizabeth "Bess" Putman Luther. Martha was born in Gallatin County, IL in 1855. I am trying to find more information on her and her husband Minton Duty. I think they had a daughter Grace Duty. Can anyone help?
There is a relationship by marriage between the families in this cemetery.
