‘Mattie’ Elizabeth STEPHENS DENTON

‘Mattie’ was her nickname.  Born Martha Elizabeth STEPHENS to parents Levi and Rachel on the 11 Oct 1871.

She married Joseph Martin DENTON on the 1 Oct 1889 in Chattanooga Tennessee.

The place of her birth has not been firmly identified so if anyone has a source please share.

The picture below is a favorite because she is holding a doll in her lap. Note the hair bows.
