*Timothy Hopkins' (1932) book, John Hopkins of Cambridge, 1634, and Some of His Descendants (Stanford Univ. Press).  According to Hopkins, Orlando and Malvina were twins "killed by lightning at school."  However, the 1860 census shows no Malvina, so if she were Orlando's twin, she died in infancy.  Also, Orlando died at age the age of three, so he was not of school age.  There's probably some grain of truth in this bit of oral family history communicated to Hopkins (by a distant kin of Martha's), but the tale is certainly not true as published by Hopkins.
**In 1914, in support of Cyrus KIRK's Civil War pension application, Martha signed an affidavit stating that she was a resident of Chillicothe, Mo., from 1865 to 1908, that during the period from the marriage of Nellie and Cyrus, in 1877, until 1902 that they had lived as neighbors in Chillicothe, and that during the period from 1902 to 1907, the KIRKs had lived in Woodward and she in Chillicothe.  These statements do not, of course, agree with Ira and Martha having lived in Kansas City ca. 1896-99 or with Cyrus and Nellie having lived in Batesville, MO, in 1878, in Larned, KS, ca. 1879-80, and in Colorado ca. 1880-82.
