Son of Louis Benjamin Talley and Blanche Alphosien Commatee-Talley.

Martin was in the U.S. Navy, Enlistment Date: 23 Aug 1943 and Release Date: 9 May 1945 during World War II and he said he was a Chef on the ships.

He also was a Chef in Oklahoma City at Cattleman's Cafe, Wiley Post Airport Restaurant, and Nickolosi's. He also worked for Wilson & Company.

Martin only had two natural children by his first wife. I do not know her name. He said he got himself "fixed" so he would not have any more kids. Their names were Rodney and Michael Talley.

He was married to Avozee Whitaker twice. He was a wonderful step-father to her kids, Fred, Carolyne, Marolyne, and Robert Steven Rone.

He was married to Dorothy Lee Turner-Mitchell.

Martin also owned Cajun Baby's Pit Bar-B-Cue in Madill, Oklahoma for several years.
