Child of Effie Blanch Lauderdale and Mathew Ellison:
Matthew married Effie Blanch Lauderdale and they had 4 children of which Bertha was one. Effie died 2 weeks after giving birth to her 4th child, so Bertha had to assume responsibility for the other children. One day Matthew told the children that he was going to town, and when he returned he would be bringing a new mama to them. He went to town and married Minnie, a girl he had seen only once riding in a buggie with her father. Minnie was said to have been a good mother to the 4 children; she and Matthew went on to have eleven more children of their own. Matthew worked at the livery stable, then drove the mail hack from jacksboro to Weathorford, TX.
