Notes for Martha A. (Spouse 1)
An article that was published in the Lawrence, Kansas, newspaper in 1938 contained several inaccuracies about Martha Ann Harvey Hook and her husband, Samuel Keagy Hook. Unfortunately, it appears that the Historical Society relied on this article when creating a biography for Martha in the 1980's.

Here is the correct information:
Martha Ann Harvey Hook was born on 23 September 1840 in Hampshire County, (West) Virginia, to Noah Harvey and Sarah Wilson. The Harvey family returned to Maryland when Martha was a child. She was first married in Allegany, Maryland, to Elijah Lower. They had no children. After Elijah's death, Martha married Samuel Keagy Hook, in Garrett, Maryland. Together, they had one daughter, Lillian Elmira Hook Tuttle. The Hook family moved to Douglas County, Kansas, before 1880.

Martha had four grandchildren who lived nearby in Douglas County: Mildred Irene Tuttle, Xaina Muriel Tuttle, Arthur Edward Tuttle, and Margaret Elizabeth Lucille Tuttle.

NOTE: Later in life, Samuel left his family and moved to San Bernardino, California, where he died on 13 December 1917. He was 80 years old.
