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.
