In reply to:
Jane Bobo, born about 1795
See "Family of Robert Martin, Sr.: (ca. 1747, IRE - aft. 1815, SC?)"
The following are probably children of Robert Martin. There were others who have not been identified, according to census records, assuming that Robert Martin, Sr., of Union County, SC, was the same person as Robert Martin of the 1790 census of Chareston District, SC.
150 i. James M. MARTIN.
ii. possibly John MARTIN. This purported son has not been confirmed. A John Martin, under the age of 26 years, appeared on the 1810 census of Union County, SC, in the general proximity of Robert Martin [Sr.] and Mrs. Jean Lindsay. He had a wife and three daughters, who were under the age of 10 years. No further information is available.
iii. possibly "Tom" MARTIN. This purported son has not been confirmed. Mrs. Lillie Martin Grubbs in her book speculated that Tom Martin may have removed to Alabama.
iv. Robert MARTIN, Jr. of Union County, SC, also styled "Col." Robert Martin, grandson of Mrs. Jean Lindsay, married Jane Bobo. They resided Union Co., SC, where Mrs. Jane Bobo Martin appears on the 1850 census as a recent widow. Robert Martin, Jr., was born about 1790-1792, based on an analysis of his census records. He was probably born in Charleston District, SC.
v. Samuel MARTIN of Union Co., SC, died after the 1850 census. His wife was Eleanor Young, daughter of Jared Young of Union County, SC. After the death of her husband, Eleanor Young Martin relocated to Calhoun Co., GA, where she resided in close proximity to her brother-in-law, James M. Martin, who lived in Randolph County near the Calhoun County border. The death of Mrs. Eleanor Martin was recorded on the 1860 Mortality Schedule of Calhoun Co., GA.
In her book MARTIN AND ALLIED FAMILIES, Lillie Martin Grubbs said:
"Several daughters" [of Robert Martin] "married in SC. Anyone wishing to come in on this line refer to the Nat. Soc." [of the Daughters of the American Revolution] "Nos. 97451-88563-223173."
vi. Janet/Jeanette Scott MARTIN was named as a granddaughter in the 1813 will of Mrs. Jean Lindsay. No record of her after 1813 has yet been found. She likely married but possibly deceased.
The report in an approved DAR application that Robert Martin had a daughter named Frances Martin who was born in 1782 is proved to be erroneous by the 1790 census, as there were no daughters in the home of Robert Martin in Charleston District in 1790.
