The following information was submitted by Ralph Terry

The tombstone of Charley (on tombstone) or Charlie (on census) Martin at Sullivan Cemetery in Knox county, Kentucky, shows his birth date as December 15, 1898 and his death date as December 15, 1899.

Ian Martin, a great nephew of Charley Martin, noted that Charley Martin listed on the 1900 Knox County, Kentucky census.

This is not the first time I have seen a deceased child listed with the family, especially since he was only a few months deceased. The census does list him, but it also shows the mother had 4 children born, and 3 living. There are 4 children listed, so one of them must have been deceased. Since we know Rachel, David and James lived after 1900, we know the deceased one was none of them. So it had to be Charley.

I find it interesting that, according to his tombstone, he lived exactly one year. Coincidental, I am sure, but nevertheless interesting.
