When Pearl M. Martin, daughter of Guy Martin, ran away from home at age 15 circa 1941 she walked from Farmington to Bonne Terre.  It took her two days & she slept in someone's outhouse overnight along the way. When she arrived at Bonne Terre Stella & John took her in.  Pearl said they raised bull dogs.  She lived with them for awhile before making her way to St. Louis.
