Alfred Martin, 1st Lt. 9th Inf Rgt, HQ Staff Omaha Barracks 1873-Anyone connect?
1st Lt. Alfred Martin is listed in the National Archives on HQ staff of Col John H King commanding 9th Infantry Rgt in the Indian Wars, Omaha Barracks, NE. Lt. Martin's job is shown as Asst Quartermaster & Asst Commissary Officer. I'm trying to find out if he was the father of Nettie Elizabeth Martin b. 1 Nov 1868 baptized 20 Dec 1868 at Trinity Cathedral-Episcopal Church, Omaha, NE. In 1875, Nettie's mother died in childbirth & baby boy survived to live with father. Two sisters including Nettie were sent to live with uncle CC Armstrong. His sister was the mother who died in childbirth and her name was likely Amanda or Annabel Armstrong.
