Hi Carol,

I hope you get this message; I'm responding to your posting dated Sep.20, 2003 regarding "James McDowell Martin" & Josephine Hamilton (you were replying to another posting).

In your note you asked for a 'time period on this James Martin' and asked IF these Martins were related to "Isaac Martin", born about 1799 - 1801?

Carol, can you tell me what, or any, information you might have on this "Isaac Martin" b. 1799-1801; or anything about a "James M. Martin" in Newton County?

My 3rd Gr.Grandfather was "James Martin", born 1800/1805, North Carolina (later became Smith Co., TN). My James Martin & family arrived in Newton Co., MO aprx. 1835/1836; they raised a large family (aprx. 14 children)in the Newton County areas (Granby, Neosho, etc.). The two oldest children, Elizabeth & Isaac, were born in TN prior to family relocating to S.W. MO (reported to be in the Tipton Ford area, near present day Joplin; the 'remaining children were all born in Missouri'. Per MO Census Records of 1850: Isaac, born aprx 1834, TN; next child, George, born aprx 1835, in MO; thus calculate James Martin family arrived in MO sometime between 1834 and 1835.

According to MO, Newton Co. Census Records: 1850, 1860, 1870, my "James Martin" had 'sons' who were named as follows: "ISAAC", "GEORGE", "WILLIAM WESLEY" - my 2nd Gr.Grandfather, "JAMES D.", "JOHN", "JOB", "JOSEPH E.". Daughters of "James Martin" were "Elizabeth", "Susan aka "Susannah".

On MO 1830 Census, Cooper County, I found a "James Martin" who could possibly be the same James Martin as the "James Martin", who along with a "George Martin" who were both shown on the 1840 MO Census as being in 'Newton Co., Marion TWP AND Newton Co., Sarcoxie TWP'. Would you have any information on these 'Two Martin Men'?? Am trying to determine IF these two men might be Brothers, Father & Son, or just Cousins, etc.??

My Martin Family research "Roadblock" at this time is: 'Trying to Prove "Who Parents" are of 'my James Martin' shown on the MO 1850, 1860, Newton Co, Census. Also the MO 1870 Newton County Census does NOT show my James Martin - it's presumed he has passed away at this point; however, I do find James Martin's Widow, Frances Ann (Burrus/Burruss) Martin, along with their 2 youngest sons, Brice Martin & Joseph E. Martin living in the same household as my '2nd Gr.Grandfather "William Wesley Martin" and his family in Newton County, MO 1870 Census. Would you perhaps have 'any information' on 'any of these Martin family members'?

Thank you for any information, clues, or possible connections to any of these Martin family members.
