Martin Cavins--need help!
Looking for any info anyone may have to share on Martin Cavins, born in Kentucky in either Dec 1871 or Dec 1872. Martin married Elizabeth M., 1893. Possible father is Richard Cavins, possible mother is Pheba (unknown last name). Also possible that Martin's full name is William Martin Cavins.
Martin is my gg-grandfather. It seems like he appeared out of nowhere and disappeared into nowhere.
I found records in the 1880 US Census that has him living in Dog Fennel, Fayette County, Kentucky (possibly?). I did find definite records in the 1900 Census that has him living in Denton County, Texas, and then in the 1910 Census that lists him as living in Burney, Love County, Oklahoma.
Would like to confirm that Richard is his father, and possibly find Richard's father.
I can share information on Martin's children, and where the line has gone from there.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
