ok, I looked in the Bay City Directories. In 1880 there is an Adolphs, barber C Von Kregel, bds Forest City House; and a John, laborer, bds 612 N Saginaw. Each is a Marten--no s.
The directory for 1884 has a Wm Martens, laborer, resides 908 Wilson. The 1894 directory sents anyone looking for Martens to Mertens and there are 3. Christopher, plasterer, res 219 N. Jackson; Frederick, carpenter, bds 219 N. Jackson; Miss Louisa, bds 219 N. Jackson. In 1897 Christopher continues at 219 N. Jackson but Fr3ederick W. carp M Lamont, res 239 N. Monroe. In 1900 we have Christopher still at 219 N. Jackson and Frederick still at 239 N. Monroe but he is now a joiner at Eickemeyer-Kamm Co.
