Rabbiyah, The 1940 census, by law, cannot be released 'til 2012, so you're outta' luck there. And with the limited information you have provided, not much more I can do to help. You might however, check and see if the Cairo library might have city directories or phone books for that time period. Also try the same for city of Chicago. Contact the Newberry library. One more source may be the Alexander co. genealogical society. Martha had siblings but you didn't ask for the rest of the census information. If you know who & when she married, maybe you can obtain a copy or their application for the marriage license. That will give you her parents names. Might she be on the ssdi under her married name?
