My interest is in Richard's lovely wife Martha. I have been trying to find out her surname and find that proof.
I believe that she was a Vass but I can't prove it.

Philip Vincent Vass, Jr and wife Susannah Meade are known to have 3 sons. I believe they also had 3 daughters and I'm trying to identify who they were. I think Martha is one of them. Martha's brothers are Thomas Vass, Walker Vass and Henry Vass. I think the other sisters are named Rachael and Elizabeth.
Thank you for taking the time to read and reply to this inquiry.
