Ron,as far as I know there are no photos of Jesse C Martin but I will post the notes I have for Jesse C. Martin I do have his Confederate Pension Application Dorothy Notes 1914 Comanche Vanguard Vanguard was agreeably surprised Monday by a visit from Uncle Jesse Martin. He is the sole male survivor of the family of the older Henry Martin one of the earliest pioneers into this territory. The town of Comanche was entirely unknown, and Cora the original county site was a brand new frontier village when Uncle Jesse came from Mississippi with his little family to assist in breaking the briers and tearing up the shinnery. Well we'll take back the shinnery, for in those days there was no shinnery. The only timber in the country north of town was the larger trees as the burning of the prairies kept the shinnery down. He settled near where Duncan school house now stands. Like nearly all full grown men of that day and generation he was in several Indian skirmishes, including that in which Kenneth McKenzie was killed.(He was Jesse's brother-in-law). He is 84 years of age but his face looks at least 15 years younger. He now lives with his grandson, a son of Zack West, just this side of the mountains at Logans Gap. He can crack a joke with as much glee as a man of 40, which accounts for his preservation.
