My landlady, Martha Richford Roberts, photo circa 1910. I rented from her for three years in 1970’s, on Foster’s branch, a chestnut log cabin + 100 acres in the Southwestern Mountains, $100/mo. She called the place Roundabout. The rumor is that someone in the Dave Matthews organization owns it now. Dunno. Haven’t returned in 35 years.
Martha danced as a youngster. This photo titled “The Comet”, taken by Count Jean De Strelecki.
Martha wrote poetry and fed many cats. She had a housemate, Martha Mabel Moore.
