A bit more information from another source

by Nick Dellow



"....Around 1922, Martha fell in love with New Orleans cornetist Emmett Hardy, whose work, like that of the legendary Buddy Bolden, is unfortunately lost to time, his style reputedly resembled that of Sharkey Bonano. Tragically, Hardy’s life was cut short by tuberculosis on June 17, 1925. Martha never fully recovered from the loss...."

The book "The Boswell Legacy" apparently contains quite a bit of information on Hardy and his influence on the sisters, though I haven't actually read it myself.
