Since Colbert's mother's name is less common I went looking and found someone else working on this line. Maybe y'all can share what you have and learn more.

Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- I typed in surname Martin, spouse Sidney Bryan and first entry was a match. Apparently one of Colbert's sons was named for his own father. Some times you have to be careful on this site as people will copy from each other, warts and all. But, this looks like the submitte has included some sources, and that's a good sign

Happy Hunting (^_^)
