I have looked on the listing of buriels in Afton township cemetery on Cherooke county, Iowa's webpage at rootsweb. No Olsons and the Martha Johnson there lived long (till year 2000). According my oral information Martha (nee Olson) died newly married and she was born around 1880!
A Pat wrote me this:
I found Caroline and Ole Olson and Roger Jones all buried there (in Pleasant Hill Cemetery), according to our county genealogical society's records. There is also an Anna O Olson buried there, born December 1882 and died April 1883.
So I look forward to the list of Pleasant Hill Cemetery is transcribed for the webpage, so I can look out for Martha's born around 1880 and dead young! My oral source is not sure of the surname she married to, Johnson perharps. I hope she was married close to her parents home and buried in the cemetery where her babysister was buried.
