Lille Amanda Martin 1893-1971 my father's mother is my link to the Martin Family - Lester W Galbreath

Our Martin family began with my 28th Great Grandfather in France with the birth of  Martin De Tours in 1003 AD. At  that point in history people did not usually travel more than a few miles from home and at first only had first names and no surnames, However the time came when people with the same name were becoming confusing so a second designation was added such as being referred to by their occupation, where they were from etc, Such as James the Wheeler, the son of James, or numerous others. His name was Martin and he lived in Tours France thus Martin Tours. The De  in a name denoted the first person in a family line or a direct descendant from the first of a family. therefore Martin De Tours.

My branch of the Martin Family Tree descends through his son Martin De Tours Jr. born 1020 in Normandie, France.

I have a file on the Martins that landed in Virginia and migrated through Tennessee to Missouri to Texas. I also have a file on the descendents from Martin de Tours to Virginia. I would be happy to share information.

Further to my message on my ancestor Charles William MARTIN born c1789s of Magdeburg, Prussia, there is a suggestion of an earlier connection with Charleston which I assume to be South Carolina. If he was of black African (or Native American) descent, he the MARTIN name would have been the slave owner.

Any research suggestions would be appreciated.

I am looking for information on my paternal grandfather's family.  My grandfather, Robert Rufus Martin, was born in Clarke County, MS on March 25, 1887.  He had a sister, Mae, and a brother, Will.  I have no information on his parents and am looking to research the family line.  At some point the family moved to Meridian, MS (Lauderdale County, MS).  Any help would be appreciated.

James Madison Martin was my great grandfather, born in Lawrenceburg, Tenn in 1832.  Moved to Dent Co. MO around 1860 with his wife Elizabeth Ivey.  He had 16 children, 8 with Elizabeth and after she died he married her sister Mary Agnus Ivey and had 8 children.  The last child was my grandfather, Charles Mogust Martin.  Would appreciate any info about the Martin family in Tennessee.
