Notes for Martha (Patsy) Donley

From the Parks manuscript:

Of her [Euphemia Donley's] daughters I have said that Martha married B. H. Reeves, raised a large family, and died in 1835. Although her education was limited, she was a lady of vigorous mind and performed well her part in rearing her family and as a member of society. She was a devoted wife and an affectionate and careful mother, who guided well her numerous household. I say numerous, because she had under her care a number of servants as well as children.

Note that Benjamin Harrison Reeves and Martha Donley were first cousins.
