I too am related to Martin. He was the ninth of eleven children of John and Elizabeth Randolph Railey. He was born 10-27-1764 in Goochland Co., Vr. married Elizabeth Mayo, and died 12-28-1810. There was John Jr., who must of died early, followed by Thomas, Isham, William, and then Martin. Which child of Martin are you related to? Apparently a number of his children moved westward to Kentucky and likely some of these to Missouri. I had a cousin who lived in Railey Hollow, Missouri, near Branson. I am decendent from Martin's son Liliburn who stayed in Vr. One of his sons, my greatgrandfather, moved to New Orleans. I have lots more information I would be glad to share. For example Martin's mother was first cousin to Thomas Jefferson and through her grandmother (Mary Isham) there is a line back to Charlemagne. I am also in the process of researchig the Mayo line. I too would be very interested in getting a copy of the will. Hopes this is of some use, Bryan Frater
