Martha (Mattie) Newby and Edwin Burdick
Martha J. Newby Burdick and husband Edwin Burdick
David H. Newby's sister Martha (Mattie) married Edwin Burdick on Feb. 6,1897 in Wisconsin. Why Wisconsin, I'm not sure. They lived in Chicago,Ill. Looks like they met in college, Edwin was a lawyer and Mattie was a doctor. They later lived in Denver which is where Edwin was from. I recently ordered the marriage license from the Wisconsin Historical Society. I scanned the license and tried to upload it here but for some reason (too big a file) it never uploaded. I wish the license had some information on Mattie's family but really nothing new. It does show her father as K.N.Newby instead of K. H. Newby but this may have been a mistake. So the search goes on for K.H. Newby.
There were no names on this picture but based on the way they looked here compared to the way they looked in the ones with names I would say this is a picture of Mattie and Edwin. I've found no record of Mattie and Edwin having children. I think it is amazing that she was a doctor in the early 1900's.
