I can't help you with your Martins post Revolutionary War my interest ends about then, but I might be able to shed some light on migrations. When the British captured Savannah, many of the residents of Sunbury and the surrounding area fled back to Beaufort and remained there until after it was safe to return home. This part of Georgia was heavily pro-American and the British retribution was fairly heavy.

As far as I can tell there are two families of Martins in Liberty County, there were two John Martins who were contemporaries, one died in 1772 (married into my Dunhams) and another who was active in the Colonial Government of Gerogia.
