Cindy, I am looking for info on the MARTINs of Wilson CO, TN. My ancestor is James Martin born about 1803 in NC or VA (census info varies)... I know he had a brother named Robert B. Martin (b. abt 1801) My James Martin married Mary Eason in Wilson County in 1825. Thier son Joseph B. Martin was born 18 Dec 1825. Mary died abt 1827 and James married Harriet Hagerty in 1830 in Wilson Co. Robert B. Martin married Cynthia Hagerty sister of Harriet. They were the daughters of Patrick Hagerty and Elizabeth Eason. The Hagertys and the Eason families came from Gates Co, NC. by 1800.

Could my James be kin to your Joseph??

I found this information on regarding Thomas Martin's Will 1816.
He had a wife with the last name Williams and his brother John Martin also had a wife with last name Williams. Both Thomas and John Martin were mentioned in my GGGG Grandfather, Daniel Williams' Will. The Williams' daughters' names were not given. I am searching for descendants of these two Martins.

Will of Thomas Martin (signed 3 Jan 1816, proven Mar Court 1816) named 8 children. The sons (not necessarily in age-order) were Samuel D., Isaac, Joseph, John, Thomas, and Daniel; daughters were Abrilla and Drusilla. Joseph Martin was executor along with widow-Ruth. That guarantees that Joseph was of legal age in 1816 (born by 1795). He'd have been the oldest of the sons still resident in Christian Co KY. Joseph Martin married Jane Rager, whose family thoughtfully kept a Bible. Joseph (28 Dec 1789 - 4 Nov 1869) was born in Wilkes Co GA, died in Todd Co KY. QED: Thomas and Ruth Williams Martin lived in Wilkes Co GA at the time of the 1790 census. As did John and Drusilla Williams Martin

Hi Martin followers! Since my last post several things have changed. Thomas Tilman Martin is NOT the son of Joseph and Patsey Martin as I posted last Feb. He is the son of a Joseph Martin, wife unkn. b. ~1772 probably Albermarle Va. This Joseph was in Wilson County Tn before 1800 and had several children there. Thomas T had brothers James, John, William Moon, as well as sisters Elizabeth and Martha. In total, there were 18 children, many as yet undiscovered. The previously mentioned children moved to Arkansas about 1819-20 and Joseph had his remaining children there and died there.
Recent evidence shows part of these children were also in Georgia, dying in Olgethorpe Co. Many went on to Texas and Oklahoma by 1850.

Recently 2 family members did DNA and we are related to Cluff or Clough Martin, John Henry Martin of Missouri? Hudson Martin and closely compare to several groups in the study.

I believe several of you are of the same lines from the postings I have seen. The names and instances posted by Cheryl Hoover Davis, Betty Vaughn, Shay Farnsworth, Judy Kinney, Candy Kammerman and maybe others seem as though you might also be of this line.
I will be happy to share whatever our group and our researcher has found with you, if you wish. I can be reached by email if you are one of these named persons and would like to discuss what we have found...and share what you know.
We are debating at the moment if Joseph Martin's father might be Shadrack Henderson, also know as Shadrack Martin. Do any of you have this odd situation in your lineage? Maybe you can clear it up for us.
I look forward to sharing information with you. Once I learn to add stuff here, I will also post it here for you.

Looking for anyone with information regarding the family of Mary Martin Lutts from Lawrence County, TN.
Comment by Kim Shutway on April 5, 2010 at 6:47am
Looking for Samuel Martin b Nov 1798 in VA. Later to Greenbrier Co., VA/WV where the family has been for 200 yrs. Samuel was probably the son of Robert Martin and Mary Craig who left Augusta Co., VA and settled in Nicholas Co., VA/WV about 1803. I have Samuel and his kids, grandkids,etc well documented, so I'm looking for anyone that descends from this family and any info on Samuel before 1820.

Cindy, in looking for Kessiah check records in Spartenburg, Cherokee and Greenville Co, SC. That is where the Cherokees had their land by treaty until was taken away.. Really it extend west from a line just about the line of Cherokee Co but records sort of scattered as counties were formed and county lines changed.. areas called Districts back them too

It is possible that I have found my Thomas T. Martin's family. Joseph and Patsey(Martha Bailey) from Va. Found a great resource in the book of Virginia/West Va Revolutionary War Pensions online, listing the places they lived and their children: Stephen b.11/28/1779, Susanna 5/8/1787, Morning/Moaning 8/1/1789, Joseph 9/7/1791-2, Thomas 5/26/1795, Martha/Patsey 5/27/1798 (m. John Perdue). In 1839 Stephen, Susanna, Morning, Joseph reside in Patrick Co. Va dau Patsey res Rockingham Co NC Son Thomas then res "somewhere in the West"... P 179-180.
The book is a preview on Google Books Online but many Martins are present. If you need genealogy info verification, the info does help.
Now if we could find Kessariah/Keziah SC...

I am looking for descendants of Edwin Martin and Mary Gransberry. They had two daughters that I know of, Fannie I Martin and Ethel A. Martin. Both were born in Reno Kansas. This family moved to Bent Colorado after 1915. They are listed in the 1920 census in Caddoa Bent Colorado, the trail has now run cold.

Hello! I have members of my Fox family that married into the Martin Family from Albemarle and Amherst counties Virginia. The Martins were very close to Samuel Fox and family during the 1770s in that area.
Comment by Cindy Hagaman Hanrahan on February 8, 2010 at 6:14pm
My Martin brick wall is Thomas T. Martin b. 1790s in Va. married abt 1820 to Keziah/Kissiariah (unknown last name) b 1803 in SC. She was rumored to be full blooded Cherokee. Speculations are that he is descended from Brig General Joseph Martin. They relocated to Fort Smith Ark by 1820 and were first settlers there. Their children were born there and by 1838-9 they moved to Texas where he died in 1840s. If any of this makes connections with yours, I have some suppositions as well as some facts from them forward via their daugher Emaline Martin Morgan.
