10. Martha Caroline KEE. Born in 1835 in Tennessee. At the age of 83, Martha Caroline died on 22 May 1918. Buried in May 1918 in Laster Cemetery, Henderson County, Tennessee.

Obituary: Death of Octogenarian: Mrs. Martha Laster, aged 83 years old, died Wednesday, the 22nd, at her home near Brantley's Store in the old 6th District, from the effects of a fall received a short time ago. Deceased was the widow of the late Jackson Laster, who died about died about twenty years ago. She was the mother of thirteen children, of whom eight survive. For twenty-five years or longer she was a member of the Primitive Baptist Church at Johnston's Cross Roads. The funeral services were conducted by a Primitive Baptist minister and the remains interred in the family graveyard. Mrs. Laster had lived all her long and useful life in the Jacks Creek section and was respected and loved by all who knew her.

Obituary: In Memoriam: At home in Henderson County, Bro. A.J. Laster departed form this life on July 2 1898. His remains were laid to rest on the 3rd at Kee Cemetery, Elders J.E.W. Jenkins and Reed conducting the services. He was 64 years old and left a wife and family and a host of relatives and friends to mourn his departure. Through his sickness he suffered no little, but seemed to be willing to go if it was his Master's will. Although it pleased God to take from our midst Bro. Laster to meet his loved ones who have been waiting for him there and watch for those loved ones whom he has left here to mourn for him. We have lost one who cannot be forgotten. He was always willing to help in time of need. He was a member of the Primitive Baptist Church at Johnson Cross Roads. The church has lost a faithful member. I would say mourn not, as those who have no hope in Christ, for Brother Laster has gone to be with Christ in the promised land, that land that was promised to him and all that will follow Christ. And I would say to each of the loved ones to look to Christ in this, their time of need, who alone can help them. So dear ones, live here in this life so that when you are called to lay down this sinful body that we may all gather around the throne of God, where there will be no more parting and to be with Christ forever more. "The river is crossed in safety, The beautiful gates stands ajar, The angels accepted his passport, although he came afar. So he ahs joined in the heavenly chorus, chanting hymns which never grow old, And he walks the bright streets of the city which are paved with the pures of gold."
