|tribe hunter||DNA tests|
Thank you for your information. I am heading to UT next week and will discuss this with other family members. As I said in my other message, our uncle Argie Martin is the son of Lillie Davis Martin and would be the one that would give the sample. Ten years ago, Sorenson Institute, Salt Lake City (now owned by Ancestry) was in our area asking for blood samples and 4 generation sheets. When my results came back it said that I was HAPLO A-1 which I have researched, but still have no idea what that really means. It said that my DNA goes to the SUDAN area. I find it interesting that you said the Cherokee linage is Middle Eastern. If it is ok, I will be in contact with you soon. Thank you.

According to Philip Martin's second wife, Dorcas Prather Martin, her will states that she was to be buried beside her husband, Philip at the Old Church Cemetery, where they worshiped at, with an iron fence around there graves......I have a copy of her will.....
When I read your profile, I was excited, as a couple months ago, my uncle (age 85) had a DNA test through Ancestry. My grandmother, Lillie Davis Martin has Native American background, through her maternal Davis ancestry. Her memorial is on Find A Grave #29291680. As you can see, she is definitely Native American. We believe she is either Cherokee or Choctaw because of the location where the Davis' lived. I knew that Ancestry's DNA "tests" would only give links to others that we maybe related to, but he chose that avenue. He is the only surviving child of Lillie. I had discussed with our Family organization that we have a more in-depth DNA test that specializes in Native American. Can you suggest a company for this kind of testing, and would these DNA tests give us a specific American tribe? Thank you.

I spent 6 months researching and recording those buried in the Old Clarksville Cemetery. Cheryl Cheryl Williams volunteered and took all the headstone photos. I was especially appreciative when I first saw Philip's grave photo. We also worked with the Friends of the Old Clarksville Cemetery Society with their information. John Washington (you are correct) stabbed a man and was sent to the Georgia State Prison in the 1840's. He was quite the land speculator during the George Land Lotteries. It is presumed with his Martin/Terrell connection he had the "funds" to be released with the provision he "leave Georgia" My gg-grandfather was WASH Martin and is buried in an unknown cemetery in Arkansas. My direct Martin lines moved from Habersham to Walker County with the descendants Isham Wheeler. They together moved to Newton County, Arkansas shortly before the Civil War, other than our Robert Martin who served in a unit from Georgia. He was wounded and taken to a Federal Prison in VA and later released. WE ARE TRUE Arkansas Hill People.

I am very aware of the information you have provided which I have documented in my personal genealogy databases 8 years ago. I am directly related to Philip Martin. Find A Grave is not a personal data base, but a cemetery registration website. If other descendants view this memorial, and they can click on your sponsorship and you can share that information with them if you choose.
