From the life of Martha Raymer Weaver Draper: Martha first husband died, so later she married a friend of the family William Draper Jr., a widower.
When the mob threatened to burn her home unless she denied the religion she told them to go ahead. She loaded one wagon with her essential belongings and began the journey West. When the Mormon Battalion was formed her sons, Miles, Franklin, and daughter, Martha, volunteered to go. It was very hard on Martha because she was a widow.
