Thanks, Robin, I am enclosing what I know about my family. I would be very thankful if you would see if there is anything in your book that might connect. Carole
PARIS CLARK MARTIN'S NARRATIVE 1816-1872 Compiled from original manuscript by his grandsons, Kenneth L. Hilton and Curtis Eugene Hilton
"My father was born January 4th 1816 in Kentucky in the mountanius region but otherwise I do not know any thing of what portion of Kentucky it was and about all I know of his life up to the time I was about three years old I learned from him he was the oldest of six children his mother died when he was a small boy and his father married another woman they had two children a girl and a boy then his father died after they left Kentucky and went to Tenn.
When my grand father died the children by his first wife were all bound out and father lost track of his half sister and he never heard of her any more but his half brother growed up to manhood went to California and finally came back MO and by some means heard of father and came to visit us. I was then past 13 years of age he came early in March and my father asked me if I could catch a mess of fish for Uncle Alvis there was some ice in the creek and I had never fished before in cold weather but I put out three bank hooks and caught one ten pound catfish after that we had all the fish we wanted we lived near a large creek and the fish were plentifull I caught a great many while we lived there and seldom caught one that weighed less than six pound the largest one I caught weighed twenty pounds I sold it for one dollar as we had no use for it.
Wel my uncle went home he lived in Cedar county MO was married living on a farm he was a large fine looking man weighed more than two hundred pound but got over heated that summer in the harvest field and died so I only saw him the one time. (Note; this would have been in 1871)I have found no record of his death or other. )
Parents of these siblings Unknown. Father born KY, mother born VA (per 1880 and later census) Mother died after 1820 either in KY or TN Father died probably before 1830 in TN probably Warren Co.,
Note: Children of first marriage were bound out in TN probably Warren, or De Kalb.
Known siblings of William Nelson Martin William Nelson Martin b. 1816 KY
Jemima Bethane Martin abt 1815 KY(married Lorenza Dow Linder)
Rachel Martin b. abt 1820 TN
Alvis (probably not his first name) may be half brother.
Note; All of these Martins died in MO and migrated there between 1850 and 1857. The first trip was in a wagon train organized by John Cantrell according to family stories. CR
