Looking for information on MARTIN THOMPSON Born reportedly May 06, 1793 (possible 1798) in S.C.
Cannot find any record or reference of his service "except" a ref made by verbal statement from a friend of Martin's in 1872.The statement was made for character pertaining to a claim for damages during the Civil War from the Southern Claims Commission.The statement by the friend simply says:
"An old soldier who fought under Jackson in the war of 1812"
He reportedly married M. Catherine Knox (polk) abt 1820.
The first record of him in GA is a purchase of 40 acres in 1841 from David Blackwell..
Any information on Martin or ANY of the family OR CONNECTIONS would be Greatly Appreciated.
