Claude was born in Davy, McDowell County, West Virginia, the son of Powhatan Barber Martin and Mollie Jane Silcock. His birth date has been recorded as 7 June 1896 according to his World War I Draft record and his SSDI Application shows a birth date of 23 June 1896.

Claude was married twice. His first marriage took place on 26 June 1916 in McDowell County to Clara Farley. She was born about 1899 in Giles County, Virginia to John and Linda Farley. Claude married Edith Brumfield sometime between 1920-1930. The 1930 Census shows one child, Charles, who was age 9. It is not known at this time if Charles was the son of his first or second wife. By 1940, the couple had one son, John, who was 7 years of age. Not much is known about these two children.

The 1940 Census is the last record for Claude. There was another Claude A. Martin who was born in West Virginia in 1898 and eventually settled in California. A few researchers believe the two individuals are the same; however, the dates and locations of their birth do not have any similarity.

Claude's death date and location are not known so I have placed him in the same cemetery as Edith because there is a large family headstone in place. It is possible that he was buried there without his own marker. I am related to this family and I welcome any information from researchers and family members alike to complete the information for his death.
