Thank you for the information on a Jesse Martin. The Martin family line is part of my ancestry through the Reed family that migrated out of Burke County, NC about 1806-1807. My gggg grandfather a John Reed married a Mary Polly Martin in NC before the migration to Warren County, TN. Mary is buried in the Martin Family Plots in the Shiloh Cemetery of Warren County, TN. Mary died in 1822 and was the first Martin buried there. My ggg grandfather an Edward Reed was married to Sarah Sally Martin. I have yet to document who Mary and Sarah were related to in the large number of Martin families in Warren County. The Martin, Reed and Christian Shell familes were all related my marriage. Christian was married to a Rachel Martin. The Martin's were also from Burke County, NC.

Thank you for another insight on the Martin Family line.
Here is some data I found on the Shiloh Cemetery about Martin Families:
The Martin Burial plots are in Shiloh Cemetery:
Wm "Rock" Martin and wife Jenny Bradford
Jesse Martin, son of "Rock" and Jenny Martin
Mary Reed, wife of John Reed, maiden name Mary Polly Martin
John & Mary Martin Duncan (Mary, the daughter of Rock and Jenny Martin)
Cleopatra, small stone (thought to be a granddaughter of Mary Duncan)
