Widow's Deposition - Previously Unknown

Previously unknown:
1. Year families brought from Alabama
2. Her Father's given name
3. The attending Physician's name
4. Name of the first minister that performed the marriage ceremony
5. Name of the second person that 'married' the couple in N.O.
6. Name of the last minister that performed the marriage ceremony
7. Number of children born to this couple (10) - we only knew three, and a "possible" fourth

Oral tradition states that all of them did not keep the same surname. In addition, some moved out of the area after "the war". They would have been much older, possibly no longer living, by the time their mother, Martha, gave her deposition for a widow's pension. She stated that her youngest child was "44" years old.
