  • Notes 
    • Notes by Elsa Darline Walker Eden - 1998
      The first three years of Martha's life, who her parents actually were, how and why she came to live with Matthias and Sarah Davis is a mystery.
      Her date of birth is recorded the same in three "Davis" family Bibles that we are aware of. A "Davis" Bible which belonged to Matthias Davis III, and his wife, Lena, was given to Lita (Goble) Deakins by her "Uncle Matt" in the 1950's. There appears this notation on the Birth page: "Martha J. Davis, April 14, 1864, adopted to Matthias & Sarah Ann Davis in Union Co., Iowa, 1867". Lita did not know until she received this Bible that her mother had been adopted, her mother having died when she was age 13.
      However, in 1997 the following 2 Adoption Records were found at the Courthouse in Creston, Union Co., Iowa:
      The first record, filed June 17, 1867; "J. F. Bishop (County Judge) to Nancy C. Davis," "Nancy C. Davis, daughter of Louisa A. Davis, formerly of Missouri and now address unknown, and ______ Davis, said to be deceased." In this record she is being adopted by C. J. and Hulda A. Hoover and is renamed "Martha Washington Hoover." She is stated to be "about three years old" at that time.
      The second record, filed January 20, 1868 is titled "C. J. Hoover to Matthias Davis." In this record C. J. and Hulda A. Hoover give "with love and affection their adopted daughter, Martha W. Hoover, the care and control of said child during her minority, to Matthias and Sarah Ann Davis." Matthias and Sarah Ann agree that they will "treat the child with kindness, adopting her as a member of the family, and give to her an equal share of their property with the rest of their heirs."
      Further complicating what we know about Martha's parentage is the marriage record of Martha to Marion E. Goble found in 1997. This was also in the County Courthouse, Creston, Union Co, Iowa "Register of Marriages," Book One 1880-1892, Page 42.

      The following is an obituary for Martha J. Davis Goble, printed in the Blue Valley Blade newspaper, Seward, Nebraska on March 9, 1898:
      "Martha J. Goble was born near Hopkins, Worth Co.*, Missouri, April 4th, 1864 and died in Seward March 3rd, 1898, aged thirty-three years, ten months, and ten days. When nineteen years of age she became identified with the Christian church. Her husband and three children survive her. The last tribute of respect was shown this departed one on Sunday, March 6th, at 2 P. M. at the home, a goodly number of friends and neighbors attending the funeral conducted by Rev. E. F. Bowers, after which the disease wasted form was laid to rest awaiting the coming of the Prince of Peace."
      *Hopkins, MO is in Nodaway Co., not Worth Co.
