    Children in 2nd class are typically 8 years old, so this is estimated to be from 1867.

  • Notes 
    • From Christine Woods: "I believe my grandmother used to correspond with her. Martha did live in Ireland for a time. I have a report card of hers from St. Mary's Convent School, Ennis.. Unfortunately there's no information as to year. I remember hearing a tale of young Martha playing outside in India, when she was suddenly scooped up in the trunk of an elephant (obviously domesticated) and saved from a poisonous snake of whose presence she was unaware.

      Based on her age in this report card, it is my belief (RJS) that her mother passed away between 1862-1867 and that Martha was sent to Ireland to be cared for.
