I was looking at your family to see if I could answer any of your questions. Did you contact the Somervell County Clerk, for copies of Caroline/Carolina and William's death certificates?
I didn't find them online at Ancestry or familysearch.

The County won't have marriage or birth info because they weren't married or born in that county.

I also can't find Caroline/Carolina in the 1920 Census. I thought it was odd that she wasn't living with Beulah and her family in Somervell Co.

I did find John Qunincy Martin's death record at and see that Meadows was in his Mother's Name field. Remember that that info is only as good as the Informant's knowledge at the time of his death.

Did you notice the 1910 Somervell Co. Census where it showed that M2 or second marriage for William?

I found the 1870 Census where William was living in Bosque Co. with the Glass family. I think he married Caroline there but couldn't find that record on line.

I had found the martin Family Tree, with the following info.
William Martin
Born: 17 May 1830, TN
Died: 8 Jan 1917, Somervell Co., TX

Married: 6 Nov 1857, Lauretta Ellen Aden in henry Co., TN
Child: Earnest Martin

Married: Caroline Pelepin in 1871
Born: 15 July 1841, MS
Died: 25 april 1927, TX

William M. Martin
Married: 2 Nov 1857, Henry Co., TN
Laretta E. Aden

Laretta E. (Unknown) Aden
Married: 6 Nov 1857, Henry Co., TN
William M. Martin

And then to make things more complicated

William Martin
Married: 21 March 1855, Henry Co., TN
Frances E. Odum

There definitely was a William Martin living in Henry Co., TN in 1850 but he was born abt. 1808 and was a slave owner.

I'd focus on finding death certificates for William and Caroline/Carolina and then their obituaries (if ones were issued). The Paluxy Valley Archives & Genealogy Society, is located in Somervell County and does have obituaries. They also have death records too. Successful Searching!
