    • Madge's history (as provided by granddaughter Melinda Marie Howard Marthaller) states:

      "My aunt and Uncle were gone a lot. My cousin, May Airhart, and I were left alone a lot. I remember one time a bear came through the window and broke the glass when my aunt was there. My cousin and I would shoot the rifle to keep coyotes at bay. It took both of us to hold the rifle and shoot it. The neighbors complained about the shooting and us being alone so we were taken out of there. I must have been around 12. (while living with them) My aunt and uncle had two places, so we went to Green Timber, Idaho where they raised grain. He also trapped. That is where I graduated from the eight grade. (Green Timer, Ashton, Idaho) I was about 13 when I went to live the the Grooves. I worked for them in exchange for room and board. I cooked, baked bread etc. for about two years. At age 15 I moved in with the Beemans, Frank and (?) but I hadn't even finished my freshman year when I went to live with my aunt by marriage. Her name was Belle (George) Woods. His name was Alma Woods. I called her my foster mother."
