Gwen, This may not be entirely right but I believe Martha Hoskins is the daughter of Malvina (Viney) Hoskins b. 1838 Perry Co. Malvina is the daughter of Joshua Hoskins and Martha Patsy Jones. This has puzzled me for some time. In the 1870 Clay Co census for Joshua Hoskins:
Family # 103 Hoskins, Joshua 54 M ..Martha 54 F ..Genings (Jennings) 16 M ..Farmer 14 M ..Josephine 12 F ..Martha 9 F ..Hiram 5 M
What bothered me with this is Hiram. Joshua had a son named Hiram that was born in 1844 so I couldn't figure out who this Hiram belonged to. It may be that Martha and Hiram were children born out of wedlock to Malvina. She married Granville Hacker in the late 1860's and they are listed as family # 104 next to Joshua. She has a 2 year old daughter, Sophy Hacker.
Martha Hoskins married Hugh Bowlin 15 Dec 1875 in Clay Co KY. I have been showing her as the daughter of Joshua Hoskins but now it may be that she is actually a granddaughter. Hiram has just been hanging out unattached to anyone. The entire genealogy for the Hoskins family as I currently have it is on my web site at: http://users.ev1.net/~dhoskinshttp://users.ev1.net/~dhoskins
Like I mentioned in the beginning, this may not be exactly correct and you didn't mention any dates but I have most of the Hoskins that lived in Clay Co in my files.
