Martha Ann Lassiter was born 27 Feb 1845 in Florida. She was the daughter of John J. Lassiter and Nancy Prescott
Martha Ann married George Mack Carnley about 1865
Martha Ann Carnley died 30 Aug 1936 in Walton County, Florida. She was buried 31 Aug 1936 at the Miller Cemetery at Gordon, Walton County, Florida. [1] Her grave is unmarked. Martha Ann was 82y 6m 3d old. Her last address was Mossy Head, Florida


The 1854 birth date on Martha's death certificate is inconsistent with all other records. In particular, it is extremely unlikely she married and bore a child before age 12. 1845, as shown on her headstone, is probably correct.
