Re: Who Is Martha Washington?
In Response To: Who Is Martha Washington? ()
I am also doing research on the Martha Washington mentioned in Helen Keller's autobiography. I came across this a letter from the Helen Keller Archives at the American Foundation for the Blind that may be of interest to you. It is from a Mary Vinson who says she was the child who played with Helen, and that her mother was the cook, named Jessie Hart (perhaps with a different last name later?).
