|Just in the past few years, we have begun to research our family tree.I have contacted family members and received copies of research and records, and have spent some time with some very nice people on the Internet, who all have been helpful.We look at our current efforts as "retirees in training," looking forward to the days when we can visit the places and people we are learning about now.|
The lines I am researching include:Drury, Smith, Harvey, Hiatt, Wilson, Martin, Bowman, Allen...all nice, everyday names with tons of possibilities for research!
My most interesting search has been for the parents of my Great Grandfather, Leamon W. Martin, b. ca 1844, in Ohio or Virginia (now West Virginia), who was orphaned at an early age, and spent time with the Asa Travis family in Steubenville, Ohio.His father was either James or John Martin, and his mother was Malissa (maiden name unknown).He also had a younger sister, Nancy, for whom we have no further details.
Any information would be appreciated.I am willing to share information that I have.
