F, b. circa 1857
     Note: After her divorce from Crawford, Martha Ellen married Edward Whiteman (17 May 1888 in Clark County, Indiana). Edward Whiteman had been previously married to Mary El Roades. Martha and Edward had four children of their own. After Edward died on 3 Feb 1899, Martha Ellen put the four children from her marriage to Edward into the New Albany Orphanage. A note in the orphanage records states that the four children were related to Martha' brother, Thomas Wright of Henry County, Kentucky, and that they were also related to Walter Whiteman of New Albany, Floyd County, Indiana. Orphanage records also state that the oldest child, Arthur Thomas Whiteman was a half-brother to Odus and Edgar Robertson. There is no record of her putting Odus and Edgar into the orphanage. (They may have gone back to live with their father.) Martha Ellen removed her four children from the orphanage on 30 May 1903. She married John Murdock on 13 Feb 1904 in Floyd County, Indiana.

Matilda J. Wright1

F, b. 21 February 1841, d. 2 June 1907
     Matilda J. Wright was born on 21 February 1841 at Essex Co., VA, 1850 census shows a daughter Susan age 9, but does not show a 7- or 8 year old daughter for Edward Wright. Possibly "Susan" was actually Matilda. 1860 census, Essex Co, p.687, shows "M. J." Wright, apparently a daughter of Edward and Mary (Starling) Wright, age 26 (born abt 1834). Either the "26" was an error, or this individual was not the Matilda, born about 1842, who married John Temple, because later censuses all indicate she was born in mid- or late 1842. The Sullivant book lists Matilda as the youngest of Mary E. Starling's children. DLB 2013.2 She was the daughter of Edward Wright and Mary Esther Starling. Matilda J. Wright married John Temple, son of Arthur Temple and Jane E. Richards, circa 1859, Five children born to the marriage, four living as of 1900 census. William had died in 1886.2

Matilda J. Wright died on 2 June 1907 at age 66 dates per headstone inscription. She was buried in June 1907 at St. Paul's Episcopal Church Cemetery, Miller's Tavern, Essex Co., VA.
