Fearless Females Post - Maggie's Life in Pictures

These are photos of Margaret Hovis Martin during her life. The first is at the ripe old age of 15, taken in 1875. The second is during her early years of marriage, somewhere in the time span of 1883 to 1887. Most likely the earlier date. The last image is of her late in her life. The photo was snapped at a Martin reunion in the late 1930's. She died in 1940 so this is possibly the last photo taken of her.

This post is for the blog prompt carnival, "Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women's History Month"
