Dr. Nicodemus William Boyd Craft & Birdie Lynn May

Dr. Craft and his wife died at Meta, KY in Pike County in November 1918 while caring for his patients during the influenza epidemic that spread throughout the world that year. Their four orphaned children were reared by Birdie's sister, Louisa Margery Ford Marrs. Louisa's husband, Robert Lee Marrs died in December 1919.

An old trunk of Louisa's came into the possession of Charles and Patricia Craft Prendergast, genealogists of the family in Houston, TX. It contained many family letters and picture post cards of Pike County dating from the 1880s.
