Posting things I come across in the news, even if I don't know who the particular Stathams are.
From The Hickman Courier, Friday, Oct. 20, 1899:
Fulton Leader, 13th - Mrs. Martha Statham died Wednesday night at her home near Moscow, and was buried yesterday at Harmony church, Rev. R.H. Pigue, the Methodist pastor, officiating. She was about 40 years old and leaves a husband and several children.
