Hi, I don't have the Martin families below sorted out, but it might be "your" Geneva Martin in the 1940 census with her uncle Eddie Martin b 1883 in Mullins, Marion, South Carolina and who later lived in Aynor, Galivants Ferry Township, Horry, South Carolina and who appears to be the son of George and Martha Martin. If it's the right Geneva, then her father could be Walter, Oscar, Charlie, Samuel, or...There's a Tommie Martin who appears to be part of this extended family who died in 1931 and lived in Mullens, Marion, South Carolina...etc. Needs more work.
