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.
Stephanie, you don't say where in the World Alice was born?
My earliest known ancestor is Charles William MARTIN born about 1784 in Magdeburg, Prussia now Germany. Charles, believed to be of black African descent, came to England via France in 1800 and joined the British navy. He served on HMS ACHILLE at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805. He married Priscilla SHERKEY in 1813. On discharge from the navy in 1815, he settled in Priscilla's birthplace of Frome, Somersetshire, England. Charles died in 1824. Looking to trace my earlier ancestry by Y-DNA testing with FTDNA and conventional genealogical research.
Looking for information about the Martin family from Fauquier Co. Virginia. My grandmother was Anna Martin Keady (1897-1980), her father was Wade Hampton Martin (1867-1937), his father was James F. Martin (1820-1883). Not much is known about James except he was a laborer and shoemaker in Warrenton VA, was married to Emily Brown and had many many children. I've been unable to locate where he is buried, where he was married or much information about his early life or his own parents.
Looking for information on Mary "Polly" Martin born in TN 1809. Part or full Cherokee. Married Hayden Gregory Wayne County Kentucky. Some of their children moved to Crawford County, Arkansas. I have that information, but no one seems to know about Mary's family.
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.
