Marriage with Kate MacComberEdit
- "'Oh, Captain MacComber called it that. It was his house, you know. He planted all the poplars round it and was mighty proud of it, though he was seldom home and never stayed long. Aunt Kate used to say that was inconvenient, but we never got it figured out whether she meant his staying such a little time or his coming back at all."
- —Mrs. Braddock about Amasa and Windy Poplars.
Amasa died of an unknown death on October 9 of an unknown year (certainly before 1887). At his funeral, the front door on Windy Poplars was opened for the last time. After that, they used only the back door until the Maplehurst Ladies, Sarah and Ellen Pringle visited Anne because of Andy Bryce's diaries and Rebecca had to open the front door.
Amasa is a male given name of Hebrew origin and means burden.
