I am seeking the names of or surveys done on cemetaries in and around the Lake Waccamaw area. I am investigating a group of Martins that live/lived in the area. Family lore has it that they were of indian heritage...I was told Cherokee but most like likely Lumbee or Waccamaw...
George Washington Martin married Martha Jane Bridger. George is buried in Brunswick county but I have been looking for their children or perhpas George's parents...David Martin and Sally Howell. Martha's parents were Joseph Bridger and Lounicey (aka lunicy) Forbes. The Bridger's I have traced from Pitt county, to Bladen county and down to Little River SC (Horry county).... I have been searching for the relationship between the families.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
