Albert Martin, Last Known Widow of a Civil War Veteran

Alberta Martin, the last known widow of a civil war veteran, has died at the age of 97. Alberta Martin married William Japser Martin, a Confederate veteran, in 1927, when she was 21 and he was 81. William Martin died less than four years later and Alberta Martin married his grandson two months after that. [Much of the news will cover it (i.e. CNN, MSNBC, et all, but the link above is for a site specifically about her.]
