Welcome to the group! Can you explain what the patent of Long Johns was? Also if you could provide your grandmother's name, birth date/place, etc. then there might be those here who could give you some leads.
I am researching my Martin family line. Unfortunately, My grandmother died at a very young age and nothing of her family history was preserved. I have only a few facts to go. First, her family was involved in the patent of Long Johns, also she originated from Boston. If anyone has any leads that may be able to help me, I would appreciate the info. I am really stuck at this point with guessing her family members names, at least until the 1940's census.
Hey Martin Clan!
I am trying to look for info on John Pigg Martin b. april 23, 1777 , Henry County, Virginia d. July 2, 1867 in Smith County, Misssissppi. Looking for his parents! That would solve a huge mystery in my Martin lineage. Are you a distant cousin???!! Do you have any info on these Martins? Thanks i always KNEW Martin's were special people
I am in the process of proving my lineage back to the Irish immigrant, William Martin (29 Mar 1718-16 Jan 1780). He died in Cocolamus, Juniata Co., PA. His wife was Margaret (26 Apr 1721-23 Dec 1796). She, too, was born in Ireland and died in Cocolamus. He was a veteran of the American Revolutionary War having served under Capt William Butler 2nd Battalion.
Their son, David Martin (24 Oct 1745-19 Apr 1805) is said to be the executor of his father's will. If at all possible, I need to obtain a copy of that will, or at least the parts that show his heirs. David was born in Cumberland Co., PA and died in Fairfield Co., OH. He was married first to Grizella McMeen (1748-1780) with whom he had three children. She was born in and died in Cumberland Co., PA. I would also be interested, if possible, in obtaining a copy of David's will if there was one. David was also a veteran of the American Revolutionary War with his service being with Capt. Hugh McAlister's Co.
Also, I need to prove the connection between David and his son, William (11 May 1772-6 Nov 1852). William was born in Fermanagh, Cumberland Co., PA and died in Carroll Co., IN. He was married to Phoebe Larimer (15 Jun 1766-15 Jun 1836). She was born in Cocolamus and died in Carroll Co., IN, too. It may be possible that this connection may be in spelled out in the will of the elder William, above. The younger William fought in the War of 1812 as a Lieutenant in Capt. William Sumner's Co.
Any help from fellow Martin researchers would be appreciated!
Betty, I'm still gathering connections with Joseph and John Martin. Still supposing Joseph is father to Thomas T, Wm Moon, James, John and others. Was wondering if you can share what and how you think Robert is related and about the Joseph B you mention? Did any of your Martin family have DNA done? If not, is there anyone descending from the Martin line that would have it done? What can you tell me about the John Martin of Wilson Co? We think he could be Joseph's father but need more dots to connect them...
Also, Marianna Isgrig: Tell me about your John Martin too. There are so many John Martins that we need to be certain that we eliminate those NOT in our line.
Some of the Martins went to Ky, then to Tn, then to Ga and Al, then Ark and Tx Some went from Ky to Ohio to Missouri... Who knows which were where and when? Hopefully, we leave a far more clear trail when we go.
