Mary Martin
Birth: Aug. 12, 1764
South Carolina, USA
Death: unknown
Florida, USA

Mary (maiden name may have been Ricks) Martin was born August 12, 1764 in South Carolina. She was the second wife of James Martin, Sr. She probably had more than a dozen children and step-children combined (probably including Treacy Martin Strickland, Nancy "Mercy" Martin Strickland, Talitha Martin Ball, Tabitha Martin Geiger, Delila Martin Haymans, Mary Martin Darby, Sabry Martin Welsh, Deborah Martin Baxter, John Asa Martin, Emanuel Henry Martin, James Martin, Jr., Daniel E. Martin, and Levi Martin). The British who invaded Georgia during the American Revolution named James and Mary Martin on a list of Traitors to the Crown. Both may have been preachers of the German Baptist Brethren (Dunker Denomination). After her husband's death (before 1831), Mary moved to Florida to live with her son, Emanuel Henry Martin, and his wife and is probably buried in an unmarked grave at Indian Lake Cemetery in Marion County, Florida.

Her Native American line probably goes back to the Coree Indians who lived on the Atlantic coast along the Virginia/North Carolina border. By the late 17th century, the Coree population had declined due to disease and war. During the Tuscarora War, some of the surviving Coree fled south seeking refuge among the Cheraw Indians. Later some surviving Cheraws, remnants of other Indian groups, whites, and African Americans became the basis of the contemporary Lumbee Indians.

Thanks to John Wise, Gerald Gieger, and others for so much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions.
