John Martin left his will in Carroll Co. TN, and his wife was CATHERINE "Katy/ or Kitty" PALMER b. abt. 1776 NC. Their daughter JANE MARTIN married RICHARD GREEN Jr. b. abt. 1784 NC ( probably born in Montgomery Co. NC which became part of Stanly Co. NC later in 1841 ) RICHARD GREEN Jr. died in 1864 in Carroll Co. TN.

Richard Green, Jr. and Jane Martin lived in Carroll Co. TN and her father JOHN MARTIN left this will in Carroll Co. TN mentioning his daughter JANE GREEN. Does anyone know if JOHN MARTINS wife, CATHERINE "Katy/ Kitty PALMER, is related to GREEN PALMER who had first wife MARTHA DUNN and his 2nd wife was our ANNA MACKINS RODGERS/ ROGERS the widow of JOHN M. ROGERS, JR. ( son of John M. Rogers Sr. and SARAH BILES of Stanly Co. NC ) If anyone has more info on the PALMERS, or MARTINS or DUNNS, please post as we are finding more information that they connected to our ROGERS more than once. -

Thanks for any help, Tina Rogers Beller
