Notes for REVEREND ETTA LUTICIA BRASHER:
Etta and Ida were fraternal twins. Etta was tall and lean and Ida was short and stocky. Etta Luticia Brasher first married a man with named William Marvin Durham. From this union were produced Thomas and Ruby Durham. Etta didn't raise these children, and they were farmed out to others to be raised. There was a man named Nelson, who was a pianist. He played for Etta as she preached. They fell in love and married. Then she married a Larkin Nelson Martin with whom she had Ida Elizabeth Martin. Ida Elizabeth Martin was raised mainly by Liz Martin Cook Rodrick until she became ill. After this, the two moved in Wit h Aunt Annie, and the children she was raising from her sister. After Liz Rodrick's death, Aunt Annie finished raising Elizabeth (along with the Harris family). After Larkin's death in 1916 from pneumonia, she married William Harvey Redwine (who is from Knoxville. His funeral was actually held in Knoxville, but because Etta was buried at Chestua, that is where he chose to be buried.) She had quite a few jobs. One was a traveling evangelist/minister, another with a political comp any and later on in her life a seamstress. Elizabeth had a feeling she needed to see her mother, so she sold an insurance policy and caught a bus to Vensiance, IN (where Ron was born). When Liz got there she found out her mother was sick and was going into the hospital the next day. They found out she had Uterine cancer. Etta only lived a few days after her surgery.
