Do you know who Martha Jane's father was.I have a Martha Bethany, b.1844 MS.Her father was Thomas N. Bethany, b. 1806/07, possibly in SC.I do not have who she married or any of her children's names.
I also have a Martha Jane Murray, b. ABT 1830, m. James Thornton Bethany, ABT 1855.
Is one of these your ancestor?
My great-grandmother was also named Martha Jane Bethany.She was married to a Cole, then to my great-grandfather, Jacob Robinson. Her parents were Charles Homer Bethany, b.1822, NC? and Martha A. Pierce, b. 1840, TN.We have not been able to connect Charles H. with any siblings or parents.
I am interested in whatever information you have on the Bethany's and the Murray's that married into the family.There might be a connection there somewhere.
