I think this is Callie in 1920.

Elisha would be the 5th child.

There is an Elisha Austin Martin that was born in 1824 in Henry TN that d in 1904 in Texas; I am wondering if that was William's brother, and if that's who Elisha Austin, the 5th child, was named after. I found this-

1850 census, District 12, Henry, Tennessee
Austin Martin 78 VA
Sarah Millipen 41
Sarah Millipen 13
Amos Millipen 8
Nancy Millipen 6
Beverly S Martin 38
Mary Martin 19
Melinda G Martin 0

and I wonder if that wasn't William's father

Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002
about William M Martin
Name: William M Martin
Spouse: Larretta E Aden
Marriage Date: 6 Nov 1857
Marriage County: Henry

1860 census, District 1, Henry, Tennessee
W M Martin 31
L E Martin 24

but then I can't find him in 1870.

This is a tough one, I don't know if you'll ever find out the truth.
