Martha Stewart


Martha was born on April 16, 1913 in the mountains because her mother could not go to town – Fort McPherson was too far away and the closest place was Dawson. She was baptized in July and this became known as her birthday. When she was young, Martha travelled all over with her parents. They lived in the mountains and up the Peel River, at Caribou Creek, at Hungry Lake and Blackstone River.
