Sometime after 1940, Myrtle married a Mr. Berridge.  There was a Moses Berridge boarding with her and Earl in both 1930 and 1940 but he died in 1945.  Myrtle may have married his son Ashley. She is buried in the Berridge section of Forest Home cemetery along with Ashley and Moses and their families.
