Martha Jane, James L. & John Long

Martha Jane,  James L. & John,
children of John R. Long & Nancy M. Parker
Martha Jane was born about 1855 in Walton, Eaton County, Michigan. She was the half-sister of George Jackson, William H. & Sybilla Long. The mother of these last three children was Sarah Ann Piper who was born in England and who lived in Delaware before she married John R. from Pennsylvania. Martha’s mother was Nancy M. Parker.
After the death of John R. Long in 1862, Nancy Parker remarried with Sidney Falling. From the 1987 Census in Walton, we learn that Martha Jane is 15 years old.
Martha Jane married Alphonso Mack in Walton 
on 13 August 1871.
The following screenshot of the marriage certificate shows that Alphonso was 19 years old and Martha Jane, 17.
The next screenshot shows that John Long was a witness at Martha’s marriage. He was probably her brother.

The following screenshot tells about the birth 
of their child, Eva Gertrude Mack.
Alphonso & Martha Jane had two children while they were living in Corwith: Gertrude (1872) & Verne (1879).
In 1900 Census taken at Walton, there is an error: 
it should be Verne instead of Ernie J.
