Notes for MARY CATHERINE"CAT" MARTIN:
Newspaper Article: From the Hamburg Reporter-1931
In last week's Reporter we gave a short account of the death of Mrs. W. E. Long, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W. H. Lant of Red Oak.
Services were held at Red Oak Christian Church in Red Oak and burial was made in the Hamburg cemetery.
The following obituary is Oak Express:
Mary Catherine Martin was born in Atchison county, Mo., March 10, 1869, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Martin. Her mother died, leaving her father and three children. After the father's remarriage, the three children lived with relatives and in the years following became separated to the extent that in May of this year a sister, Mrs. Eda Lee, now living in Hollywood, Calif., came to Red Oak where a reunion of the three children took place at the W. H. Lant home, Mrs. Long and her brother, George Martin, of Silver Creek, Nebr., had not seen nor did they know the whereabouts of Mrs. Lee for over fifty years.
The reuniting of the two sisters and brother came about as a result of Mrs. Lee writing a letter to her long lost sister, addressed to Hamburg, in her maiden name of Mary Martin where Mrs. Lee knew they were raised as little children.
"Miss Mary Catherine Martin was married at Rock Port, in 1866, to William Ellsworth Long. Mr. Long died at Hamburg, August 17, 1922. In March, 1926, Mrs. Long came to Red Oak to make her home with her daughter, Mrs. W. H. Lant.
Red Oak, Mrs. Long had lived most of her life at Hamburg, and at Westboro, Mo., although she had lived for a time in Des Moines. She is survived by three daughters, Mrs. W. H. Lant, of Red Oak; Mrs. C. E. Butler and Miss Katherine Long, of Chicago, all of whom were present at the funeral. One daughter, Jessie, died in infancy. She is also survived by her sister and brother, Mrs. Eda Lee, Hollywood, Calf., and George Martin, Silver Creek, Nebr., and a half brother and half sister, Henry Martin and Mrs. Charles Hays, living at Watson.
