Albert Jefferson Martin was the son of Leamon W. Martin and Sarah Jane Priest. Albert married Mahala Yocum, daughter of Asa Yocum and Mahala Jane Fleming.
Leamon's parents were James Martin and Melissa Ann ???
I am trying to find out who James Martin's parents were, as well as Melissa Ann's maiden name and family.
Albert and his brothers, Hugh and Harry Martin operated Martin Brothers Ice, a zoo and lumber yard in their earlier years.Later on Albert had a "Trading Post" where you could buy many different things.The trading post burned down. In the late 1980's, the Martin homestead (which had been built by Leamon Martin) was torn down to make way for the U.S. Route 22 bypass.
There was also another family of Martins who lived in Alikanna at the same time Leamon and Albert were there. Have not been able to find out if they were related. If so, it would be through James Martin and whoever his father may have been. Any help with my queries would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,Sue
