I found these two death records looking for my Martin family Ireland to Marshall Mi via NY. Any chance location of your James Martin the father was not Tipparary but Ellens birthplace instead?
I have siblings James b 1824, John b 1811, Ellen-Eliz "Betsy" b 1809, Bridget b 1814, Margaret b 1821. emigrating with spouses and children from Garrane co Kerry Ireland c 1850 thru Quebec Canada. James stopped in Dunkirk, NY on his way to Marshall MI, had two children Mary 1854 and John 1856 . John went right to Marshall as far as I know. John had Mary b 1842 Ireland, Catherine b Quebec 1848,Bridget 1852 in Marshall, Margaret 1854 Marshall.Siblings John, James, Bridget and Ellen-Eliz are all on the 1860 census for Marshall. I dont have spouses names, they seemed to be both widowed by 1860. Ellen-Eliz or "Betsey" married a William Thomas who also stopped in NY on the way to Marshall, Mi. They had a daughterMary b 1849 Ireland d 1879 Marshall.Bridget b 1814 hadnt married d 1877 in Marshall. I dont know what happened to Margaret. Parents of the siblings: James Martin, Catherine Moriarty all of Garrane, Co Kerry, west of Mt Brandon on the Dingle Peninsula.
Any chance these Martins could be connected to yours?
