The following is from the book entitled "A Back Family History: The Story of a Major Branch of the Back/Bach Family" by Custer Back, Kenneth Back, Troy Back, and Dexter Dixon (Pg. 175):

Martin Grider Back, son of Charles Back, born 30 December 1817 in Wayne County, Kentucky. He married, first, Mary Brown, 25 October 1842. The marriage ceremony was performed by C.S. Higginbotham. She was the daughter of Thomas and Priscilla Brown. Mary apparently died at the birth of their first child, Thomas, or shortly thereafter. Martin married, second, Nancy Brown (Mary's sister). This could have been a marriage of convenience to provide support and care for Mary's son; the marriage did not last. Note: Thomas showed up in the 1850 Census, both with Martin and next door with Nancy Brown, he was aged 6. Martin married, third, Pauline J. (Graves) Philpot, widow of B.G. Philpot of Cumberland County, Kentucky. Martin and Pauline had six children. She died 16 March 1877. Martin married, fourth, Elizabeth (Shearer) Huffaker, before 1880. They had three children. Martin was known during the Civil War as "Rebel Squire Back". He died 27 June 1888 and is buried in the Shearer Cemetery, near Susie and Stop in Wayne County, Kentucky
