William Thomas Martin Born Alabama
Posted by: Hanspeter Vollmar (ID *****6978) Date: March 25, 2012 at 08:51:46

I'm looking for a William Thomas Martin born in Alabama on Oct 3, 1823. I have also seen Oct 3, 1833. He married Martha Epps on Aug 2, 1855 in Itawamba (I believe Mississippi). My confusion is that there were 3 different William Martins born around this same area. I have seen it as William T. Martin, William C. Martin and William L. Martin. The information I have found says his father was born in Tennessee and his mother (it's a confusion) in Kentucky or Tennessee. I am trying to find his correct parents. I have found them to be James Martin and Nannie Doshd, others say unknown. Please help me place this man. I'm thinking that the people who did cencus wrote down his name however they thought they heard it. As a C and a T sound similar. I have tons of information on the Epps, and if I tied this Martin where I believe he comes from, then I have a lot of information on the Martins. If not, I'm back to square one. Thank you for your help.
