Hi Mary, My research indicates that my great grandmother, Elmira Jane Satterfield, was Marthia's older sister by about 4 years. Elmira married John Wesley Paxton about 1861 at Wheatland, Hickory County, MO., where they lived until the mid 1890's.The 1900 census shows them residing in Pettigrew, Madison County, AR. Elmira must have died around 1908. This was about the time that John W. Paxton moved out west (Dawson,New Mexico) to live with his sons, one of them being my grandfather. He died in 1912 and is buried in Vermejo Cemetery, Colfax County NM. Researching this side of the family has been difficult because some genealogy records list Elmira's maiden name as Sutterfield. Regards, Bruce P.
