Martha B.Duck

Martha B.Duck was the daughter of G.W.M.Duck and Evaline White Duck. She never married and died at age 26. Martha is buried in the Duck plot in the Pleasanton City Cemetery. This beautiful remembrance from her funeral in 1890 was found by Norman Porter, Sr. and is in pristine condition. As a Duck descendant, I am amazed that this funeral card has found it's way to me.

Yes,it does. Martha's father, G.W.M.Duck was the Sheriff from 1873-1892 or so.
