My grandmother Pearl Meserve Reasor (from Bartlesville) corresponded with a Lawyer named Meserve in Tulsa but never showed relationship.
We think a sister of Martin, Catherine married a man last name Clayton form Parkersburg WVA. When she died my gmother accompanied the body back to WVA. (ca 1926). Her dau. Ethyl married Lou Cozzens of Tulsa.< I'm doing this from memory so I may be off a bit.>
Savana "Jane" married a man named Moran - I have a letter from her daughter to my gmother. I think in one of the letters she stated she thought Martin's father Charles Ross Meserve had a brother named Ephram and that their parents died and they were "bonded out"
In a 1860 census record for Ritchie Co. WVA (Pennsboro) it showed Charles Ross Meserve , wife Margaret and children Christopher, Mahalaand finally Marten. Charles b OH Margaret and children in WVA.
Family stories tell Charles and Margaret Tucker were married in Tyler Co WVA by a rev Wells. Thanks for listening, Marilyn Turner firstname.lastname@example.org
