    Sued Pacific Express Company for personal injury, Nov 1902 (apparently dismissed)

    President of Old Ladies' Home Association of Texas 1900-1904

    Involved in a lawsuit that went to the Texas Supreme Court on 18 Jun 1886. Her father, James H Martin, added a codicil to his will that was witnessed by Susan and Nathan Kennedy. The original will apparently divided Martin's estate between Susan and her sister Susan A D Martin. The codicil divided the estate between Susan (50%) and the other 50% to be split by the sister and Susan's 2 kids. The lower court apparently decided in favor of the original will, deciding the codicil was a forgery. Susan appealed that decision and it went to the Texas Supreme Court, who found several errors and sent the case back to the lower court.

    Cases argued and decided in the Supreme Court of the State of Texas
