Martha C. "Mattie" Moxley


Martha, or Mattie as she was called, was the daughter of Henry Thomas Moxley and Martha Arminta "Mint" Sibley. She was born in February 1880 in Alabama, probably Franklin County, and in December 1899 she married Richard Nathaniel "Dick" Dulaney in Itawamba County. Mattie and Dick had eight children together.

Dick was the son of James M. Dulaney and Mary Elizabeth Senter.

Since Mattie's sister, Alice, married Dick's brother, Thomas "Bunt" Dulaney, the children of the two couples were double first cousins.

Here is the couple in the 1900 census:

Martha C. 19 AL AL AL born Feb 1881, 0 children, 0 living
(living next to his brother and her sister, Thomas A. "Bunt" and Alice Moxley Dulaney)

Although Dick died in 1927 at the age of 51, Mattie lived to be 81 years old at her death in October 1961.
