I am seeking information on a WILLIAM (WILL) FRANKLIN MARTIN, born 14 Sep 1874, in Butts County, GA. He was my maternal Great Grandfather.
What I do know is as follows:
On 30 Nov 1891, in Forsyth, Monroe County, GA, WILLIAM (WILL) FRANKLIN MARTIN married HENRIETTA JESSUP (b-29 Nov 1869 in GA, d-29 Mar 1956, Forsyth, Monroe County, GA).
HENRIETTA was the daughter of JAMES J. JESSUP (b-abt 1824, in GA, d-4 Aug 1891, in Bibb County, GA) and MISSOURI F. (or J.) JONES (b-abt 1841, in GA, d-13 Sep 1922, in Bibb County, GA), and 1 of 7 children born to JAMES and MISSOURI JESSUP. The 7 children were:
1. BARTOW S. (SANDERS ?) JESSUP, b-Oct 1860, in GA, wife LILY (maiden name unknown), daughter JULIA JESSUP
2. MAGGIE JESSUP, b-abt 1861, in GA, husband OSCAR SHAW
3. SARAH JULIA JESSUP, b-abt 1865, in GA, daughter FRANCES J. (JESSUP ?)
4. HENRIETTA JESSUP, b-29 Nov 1869, in GA, husband WILLIAM (WILL) FRANKLIN MARTIN, 9 children (See below). My maternal Great Grandparents.
5. MAMIE L. (LAURA ?) JESSUP, b-abt 1874, in GA
6. MARTHA JESSUP, b-abt 1878, in GA, 1st husband Unknown SPEAR, children RAY SPEAR and HERBERT SPEAR, 2nd husband Unknown ODOM, children FLORENCE ODOM, HILDA ODOM, and ROBERT ODOM
7. REBECCA (BECKY) JESSUP, b-abt 1880, in GA, husband ED GLASS, son T. E. GLASS
WILLIAM (WILL) FRANKLIN MARTIN and HENRIETTA JESSUP had 9 children. The 9 children were:
1. MARY JANE MARTIN, b-7 Sep 1892, in Forsyth, Monroe County, GA, husband ROBERT B. BRATTON, son ROBERT B. BRATTON, Jr.
2. BARTOW MARTIN, b-1 Jun 1895 in Forsyth, Monroe County, GA, d-13 Jul 1895, an infant.
3. MINNIE LEE MARTIN, b-11 Aug 1897, in Forsyth, Monroe County, GA
4. TROY SANDERS MARTIN, b-8 Oct 1898/1899, in Forsyth, Monroe County, GA or Houston County, GA, wife NEELEY BELLE AMERSON, 6 children. My maternal Grandfather.
5. NELLIE IRENE MARTIN, b-24 Nov 1901, in Bibb County, GA
6. OSCAR LEE MARTIN, b-9 May 1903, in Bibb County, GA, wife EVA (maiden name unknown). Lived and died in California with only occasional visits to GA.
7. OLLIE MAE (MAY ?) MARTIN, b-2 Aug 1906, in Bibb County, GA, husband ARTHUR FOUNTAIN, children CLYDE FOUNTAIN, CULLEN FOUNTAIN, GENE (EUGENE ?) FOUNTAIN, MAMIE RAY FOUNTAIN, J. W. FOUNTAIN, SHIRLEY ANN FOUNTAIN
8. JULIA KATE MARTIN, b-31 Jan 1909, in Forsyth, Monroe County, GA, husband EARL EUGENE WILKES, children DOROTHY MAE (MAY ?) WILKES, LARRY KENNETH WILKES
9. BENNY (BENJAMIN ?) RAY MARTIN, b-14 Jun 1912, in Bibb County, GA, wife MILDREN WILKES WILDER, daughters MARTHA RAY MARTIN and GAIL MARTIN
I am most interested in discovering the names of WILLIAM (WILL) FRANKLIN MARTIN's parents. I have found WILLIAM MARTIN in the 1900 Census in Bibb County, GA, but I am unable to locate him prior to that date or after that date. I believe the JESSUPs were from North Carolina, so there is a possibility that WILLIAM may have come from there also. Any information, no matter how small, would be very greatly appreciated. I am willing to share what I have.
