Barbry Sealey Martin was married 3x's - 1st to Benjamin Davis in Jan 1859 Blount Co., AL; 2nd, AC Lee in Sep 1865 Decatur, AL; 3rd Benjamin Askew in Feb 1874, Morgan Co., AL. She was mother to Margaret Maranda (b.1859) and Mary Fanny Davis (b. 1862), and Andrew J. Lee(b. 1868). Census records btwn 1860 and 1880 bounce her children's surnames around, but their marriage and death records help clarify the situation. Hope this helps.
