I believe that Martha Praught was actually baptised Catherine Martha. Also, I always understood that the son James Edward was actually Edward James (that is how it appears on his army records. He was called Ted). The last death appearing in the bible is that of Annie May. I added the last three myself. I am the daughter of Martha and Leo Lobsinger. - Leona Lang, Regina, Sask.
