Dear Marilyn, Thanks for responding. Cheryl is correct. Mahomet is in Champaign Co in Ill. Alex MARTIN b.1853,d.1910-1930 (ROckwell City Ia) (no obit)did not have a middle name as far as I can tell.
According to her obit, his wife, Delpha Jane FAIRCHILD b.Jan 1 1855-d.Dec. 7, 1929 and he were married in 1871 in Ky (no other info)
they had 4 children: Robert Lee MARTIN b.May 29,1875(my ancestor)Rosa, Virgil(passed @ 8 mos), and Alex(passed @ 23 years). Virgil may be buried in Ky. (no dates found for (those) 3 children. They moved to Mahomet, Ill when R.L. MARTIN was 7.
Am also looking for parents of the couple.Assuming they were also in Ky.
