The 1860 census of Warren Co., MO lists Martha as born in NC. I do not know if she was born in NC or VA as was indicated in the 1850 census. However, I believe that she was born in Rockingham County NC which in on the border of NC and VA.

J. H. MCGINNIS, WHO FIRST SHOD REX, DIES SUNDAY.

Retired Farmer Succumbs To Brief Illness; Funeral at Midway Tuesday.

John Henry McGinnis well known retired farmer and blacksmith, who was widely known as the smith who shod the noted stallion, Rex McDonald, for the first time, died early Sunday morning, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. John Plybon, 202 East Jackson Street, after a short illness. He was taken ill on Saturday.

John Henry McGinnis, who was 77 years old, was born on February 11, 1859, at Wright City. On April 23, 1884, he was married to Miss Lillie Hammett, of Lincoln County, and they lived devotedly together until his wife's death, on October 19, 1929.

Mr. McGinnis was engaged in practicing his trade at Martinsburg when he first shod the great Rex McDonald, almost a half century ago. When last we conversed with this elderly retired citizen, a short time ago, he remarked that he was feeling fit, and that though it might take him longer than when he first shod the great Audrain County champion saddle horse that he still felt equal to such a task.

Surviving him are the following children: Mrs. Homer Slonaker, of Thompson; Mrs. LeRoy Thomas, Mexico; Mrs. E. H. Shadwell, Paris; Mrs. John Plybon, Mexico; Mrs. J. W. Finlow, St. Louis; Joe McGinnis, Paris; and Mrs. Theodore Snyder, Paris.

Funeral services will be held at the Midway Christian Church, Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock.

Mr. McGinnis was widely known, and highly regarded by his friends, who are saddened at his passing, and friends join the Ledger in extending sympathy to the bereaved at his death.

She was laid to rest in Midway Cemetery where she held her membership in the Christian Church.

The picture in the scrapbook section on Lillie Mae was found in a box of pictures and newspaper articles which belonged to Beulah McGinnis Slonaker. On the picture was written "McGinnis - mother". I believe that it was Beulah's handwriting. I do not know who the baby was, but assumed that it was her grandchild.
