My Martins came to Pike county in 1836-38. There are still 5 Martin males living.
(4 generations) of William M Martin
Here is a picture of my great grand father, John S Martin
born 31 Dec 1837, died 14 Oct 1924 buried in Noix Creek Cemetery.
Right rear is my grandmother , Edna Augusta (Gussie) Martin Hogue, born 25 Sep 1866. died 18 Feb 1952, buried in Noix Creek Cemetery.
Next to my grandmother is my mother, Flossie Hogue Higginbotham Martin, born 19 Aug 1894, died 21 Mar 1969, buried in Lake Charles Cemetery in St. Louis, Mo.
Daryl Johnson's sister was the one who found many Martin photos and Daryl has been a big help for help on my family tree. She led me to information that my great grandfather on my mother's side was married twice and had children by his second wife. Till then Gussie's husband James W Hogue was an only child raised by a Smith family. I am still verifying some of this but it looks like Daryl is correct.
