Martha Rebecca Faries


Always described in the family as “Aunt Becky”, Martha was known as George Leathrum’s aunt and is recorded as aunt to Bessie Elizabeth Leathem on her application for a duplicate birth certificate.  Her maiden name and her parental connection to the family have not been documented.  By conjecture, she may have been a sister or step-sister to Annie (Heck / Caldwell) Leathem.
