Martha J, age 6, was living with the family in the 1910 US census, but had not been with them in the 1905 NY census. She was described as a niece, and on this census record Christine McLeod McDonald indicated she had 7, not 8, living children.

Martha Jean was living with Alexander and Christine at the time of the 1930 census. The address of Jean McDonald on Marsden St. on the record below matches the address given by her brother Norman on his marriage license:
