RE: Re: James Martin, born 1835
Not sure how much research you have done in Platte County but contact me through my email address and I might be able to help with some of the Martin family. smartys1@hotmail.com

RE: Re: James Martin, born 1835
Hello to you both. I am afraid I don't have many answers to help you with your research. I can tell you that the Hope Cemetery is very well cared for and is still being used. A friend and I did take pictures of all the headstones feel fairly certain we did not miss any unless they were unreadable. There are what look like empty spaces in the older sections and your family that is missing may very well be located there. So often when they later spouse dies, no one purchases stones or the family is all gone and the memorials are not placed. Do you have obits stating that the family members are in this cemetery? The Hope cemetery is almost on the county line of Platte and Madison and they may have been buried in Madision county although I did look them up in what is listed from Madison County and did not find them. I belong to the local Genealogy group here in Platte county and looked in the list of obits for the Martin's but did not find them listed. However, they may not have found them in the papers but are there. Just wondered if you have all the obits that would give us more info to go by. I do not know who has the records for Hope cemetery but might be able to find out for you. Not much help, but I will do what I can. Shirley

RE: James A Martin Sr.
Steve, I belong to the local genealogy group here in Platte County. I spent some time this afternoon looking for the obit but found nothing in the local paper. Because this cemetery where this Martin is buried in the the fartherst north boundry line, there is a chance that he lived in Madison County. You might try to locate a genealogy group in Madison County and they might be able to help you with trying to locate an obit from a newspaper from that county. I am sorry I was not able to help you.

RE: James A Martin Sr.
I am sorry Steve, I have no information for you. I can however look in our local newspapers and see if I can find obituary for this Martin and get the information from there. I may not be able to find one but I don't mind looking. Shirley
