I am looking for a William Martin (born in New York) who married a woman (unknow) born in Maryland. The son Jacob Almon Martin was born about 1805 in Virginia. Jacob was my greatgrandfather. He married Sarah Adeline Walker. William Martin came to Mercer Co. Ky. in the early 1800s.The first record we have of William was when he bought land in Mercer County, Ky. in 1821. This same land was divided among his wife and children when he died in 1834.
Jacob Martin moved to Bullett Co. Ky. and then Crittenden Co. Ky. in the land 1840s He was on the 1850 Census. I have ben told by one of my great uncles that this family of Martin came to America from Belfast Ireland. Any help would be appreciated. Sybil
