I am looking in Essex Co.,Va. at the family of John Martin d. 1741 and Mary Samuel d. abt. 1785.Before this marriage there were sons William and John from John's first marriage and the 1741 will also names James, George, Mary (m. Ralph Farmer), and Sarah (m. John Chenault).Mary Samuel was the daughter of James and Sarah Boulware Samuel.
I am searching for one male Martin from the John Martin -Mary Samuel (Essex County VA ) line who has already completed a Family Tree DNA test or who is willing to do the test and share the results.I am a female descendant and am interested in continuing the Martin family research using DNA.I am willing to pay for a portion of the cost of the 37 marker test if the paper work looks agreeable and if you are willing to share the results so more research can be done.My cousin has some experience with DNA testing for research on other family lines. Please contact Bobbi at email@example.com if you are interested in taking the DNA test.
