Notes for Susannah Meador:
W S Martin's book "Martin Family Record from 1760 to 1963" states William Martin was married to Susannah Tudor. This is a possibility since W S Martin collected information from descendants of William and Susan Martin that were only a few generations removed. No evidence has been found of a connection between Martins and Tudors in VA to date other than this books reference. There is some compelling evidence of William Martin married to Susannah Meador so that is how we are listing this spouse for now. Research needed.
