Clarence L. Martin (1895-1937) & Family
It looks like John "Wesley" Martin, father of Clarence Lawson Martin (1895-1937), was married twice. Once in 1894/94 to Rhoda "Rose" Plemons, mother of Clarence, and then again in May 1904 to Sarah E. xxxxx, at the time of his untimely death. I do not know if he had any children via his second wife Sarah. Do you? And, what ever happened to her.
Do you know of the Martin family history from this time period 1904, and beforehand, especially any history on Wesley Martin and who shot him?
As I have mentioned before, I believe Albert W. Martin to be his brother. He was the gr.-grandfather of my wife Regina (Martin) Lewie, and came briefly to Columbus, Ohio about 1902, and was gone by 1909. He may have gone by the name of "Ira" or even "Bert", too.

Martins in Knox County

Sorry I have not gotten back to you since last December 2014 In January 2015, our computer crashed and burned due to a virus losing all of our e-mail contacts. We had to get a new computer and I am rebuilding all my email address. Thanks!

Take Care,

P.S. You can still use this email address to contact us at, as you did in 2014.

Lipton - Ramsey - Martin, mid-1800s

Answer: A lot of hard work! Go to and look up, "NC and Tennessee Martin Family Tree". This is the one my wife (she is the Martin)and I made over the last few years. It also shows my wife's direct relationship to the Martin family from Washington Co., TN from/about late 1700s.
The Tiptons were from Yancey Co., N.C. from about this same time period. Docia (Tipton)Ramsey is from this family and was married to William Ramseywho died in 1849. She then married Julius Robison (sometimes spelled "Robinson")who saddly died in 1852, thus the confusion with the many sir-names (and children)she had over a short few years. Her extended family then moved to Washington Co., TN during the Civil War, then onto eastern Knox County with daughter Annie (Ramsey) Martin and other extended family members including the Tapps about 1870. Docia died in 1880 but do not know where she is buried. Do you? Her daughter Annie died in 1895, and is buried in Thorngrove Cemetery.
Q. Who was your gr.-gr. grandmother Tipton/Ramsey?

We are looking for "Albert Washington Martin" (aka "Bert Martin" or even "Ira Martin"), (b. about 1875, Knox County), who was Annie's son. He came to Columbus, Ohio, in/about 1903, got married, had two children, then left town about 1910 never to be seen or heard again.

Thanks for the email, please stay in touch! More later, I'm sure!!
