Vance, Orangebur, SC - Unconnected Martins
This is not my family and I'm not researching it,
but I came across them - and it kinda makes me
sad to find family graves not linked…
Even if this only is helpful in the future and tells
someone where their family is…. I was wondering
-- Can anyone help provide burial location info
and link 1) Mom to Dad and 2) Children to Mom?
Mother: Mary Martin (1874-1943) "Asleep in Jesus"
Father:? unknown by me ?
Children include, at least
Dau Lillie(bc 1895; SC)
SonKinie Oliver (Kenny?) (bc 1898; SC)
SonWillie(bc 1900; SC)
SonLewis(1898-1957) "Asleep in Jesus"
SonWade(1904-1964) "Asleep in Jesus"
Dau Bertha(bc 1911; SC)
Mary, Lewis, and Wade with similar stones in
Gerizim United Methodist Church Cemetery
in Vance, Orangeburg County, South Carolina
Household included a Francis Martin (Female, bc 1836; SC)
who was listed as a border, but was likely Mary's Mother-in-Law
Francis was in the 1910 Census for Vance, but was gone by the
Notice Mary was listed as widowed in the 1910 Census and
her daughter Bertha is listed as aged 9, in the 1920 Census,
so -- likely -- Mary was so many months along, carrying
Bertha when she was widowed and the census caught that.
