I thought that Jane Smith might answer you query. My computer was down for a while over the weekend and I was hoping she would answer. What I'm posting came from her. She quoted from Mildred Hartsell Finchum's book on the Barbees. I haven't seen this book and am not researching the Barbee family, just the connections to the FURR family.
The book mentions three separate Martha Serena Barbees:
1st one born 1844 daughter of Gabriel and Sarah Barbee married 1st Martin V. Green and then James M. Hartsell. This is the one you mentioned.
2nd one born about 1840 according to the census, but on her tombstone in 1835. She is the daughter of Josiah and Mary Barbee and married 1st Ephraim FURR and 2nd Labon SMITH. This was the one we were discussing. She is mentioned in the Josiah Barbee estate settlement.
3rd one born 1863 married Adam Jack EUDY and is mentioned in the Josiah BARBEE estate settlement. Jane doesn't mention her parents but thinks she is a grandaugher of Josiah. There is no marriage record for her to Adam Eudy in Stanly Co. marriage records that I have.
Hope this answers your question. I don't know the relationship of Josiah to Gabriel Barbee.
This information on the BARBEE family was sent to Bill FURR by Jane SMITH and Bill forwarded it to me.
