They had 6 children with my Great Grandmother being the youngest. Felix Died in in 1874 and Margaret remarried the next year to Samuel Taul.  Margaret spent most of her life in Breckinridge Co. Ky and passed away 7 May 1926.

Martha was born in Meade Co. KY. on 24 Aug. 1840. In the 1860 census I found her working as a domestic for the Williams family in Spencer Co. Indiana.
Martha married Charles Coomes Elder on 16 Nov. 1862 in Breckinridge Co. KY. She passed away 6 June 1920 and was laid to rest at Saint Romuald Cemetery in Cloverport, Ky.
