CHILDREN................ 

 notes:  This was Laura's first marriage, Enoch's second. He was first married
        to Mary MARTIN in 1897 (b. AUG 1880), and had two children; Bertha 
        (b. SEP 1897) and Nellie (b. OCT 1899). Mary was the daughter of John
        and Sarah Rogers MARTIN (daughter of Jeremiah David ROGERS).

         It's presumed that Mary and Nellie had passed by 1904, as only Bertha
        is in the Enoch CUNNINGHAM household in 1910.
