Note #30 - Lewis and Anna Cammack Yeager's Children:
Martha Ann Yeager


Martha Ann Yeager, third child of Lewis and Anna, was born April 2,
1827, and married Steve Caudle, according to Troy Lou Caddell's chart.

Their marriage license was issued 5 March 1854 in Bibb Co., AL, and they
married four days later, 09 March 1854, with I.H. Hagler, M.G.,

Almost ten years ago, Frances Snyder Keith sent me a wealth of Yeager
information, including some on Lewis's daughter Martha Ann --
photocopies of pages from a book entitled "Caudle." I do not know who
the author is, nor place and date of publication, but believe Frances
located the book in a Birmingham, AL, library. It reads in part (p. 2):

"4. STEPHEN-2 CAUDLE [Jr.] Stephen-1) 1st son of Stephen and Mary
Caudle, b. 29 Sept. 1818, d. 27 Feb. 1895, Guin, Marion Co., Ala. m.1]
13 Feb. 1837, Winney Butler in Butler Co., Ala., b. in 1820 in S.C., d.
30 Dec. 1853, Bibb Co., Ala., (she may have been the daughter or
granddaughter of Capt. William Butler, native of Virginia, pioneer
settler of Butler Co., for whom county is named. He was massacred by
Indians near Butler Springs, Ala., 18 March, 1828 and is buried in
Pioneer Cemetery, Greenville, Butler Co., Ala.)

"Stephen married 2] 9 March 1854 Martha Ann Yeager in Bibb Co., Ala., b.
2 April 1827 in Ala., d. 4 Dec. 1918 in Marion Co., Ala. She was the
daughter of Lewis Yeager and wife Ann. . . . Stephen had a blacksmith
shop in Bibb Co., and in 1857 and 1859, the post office was located
there and known as Caudle's Shop. He and his family moved to Perry Co.,
and lived in the town of Marion in 1860 and 1870 census; later moving to
Guin in Marion Co., Ala., where he operated a blacksmith shop, grist
mill and gin. He lost his sight in his latter years. He and his second
wife, Martha are buried in the old cemetery near Guin... "

Other sources: In a letter dated 8/10/93, Cecil C. Cammack of Tyler,
TX, sent me information on Martha Ann which is essentially the same as
above, citing Miles W. Caudle as his source. Some of this data in
abbreviated form is also found in "The Steeles of Bibb," by Parker &
Miriam R.Steele, and "Haysop, a Church, A Community a People of Haysop
Creek, Bibb County, Alabama" by Charles E. Boyd. In "The Yeager Family
Circle," by McPherson and Gregath, the only mention of Martha is in a
list of the children of Lewis, p. 124, with her birth date and marriage
to "Stephen Caddell" (should be Caudle) in 1854.

Martha Ann Yeager was almost 27 when she married 36-year-old Stephen
Caudle, Jr., and took on the care of his six children: Cary, a daughter
b. 1838; John b. 1839; William b.1842; M. A. Caudle, a daughter b. 1844;
Caroline b. 1848; and Feriba Catherine, b. 1852. It was Martha's first
