Martin was born about 1790; the son of William Holmes & unknown mother at this time. He married Elizabeth Young about 1812 in Floyd County, Indiana.
Together they had 12 children; 8 known names:
Rebecca Holmes McDonald Wilson
Mahala Holmes Rush

Polly Holmes Harrison
Martin served in the War of 1812 as a private under Captain Richard Quinley's Company, 5th Regiment Indiana Infantry Militia of Harrison County, Indiana.
Around 1820 Martin & Elizabeth moved from Floyd County to Lawrence County, Indiana.
Martin was killed by a falling tree at William Pedigo's farm in Lawrence County, Indiana about 1833. Through research I have found documentation stating Martin is buried on the Pedigo farm in Perry Twp., Lawrence County, Indiana. The place of burial is now a pasture & there is no headstone or marking for him.
