Hi again, I found a paper on Iowa deaths and burials Itsays Charles was born in south wales on March10,1847 in south wales and that he was a retired coalminer. Also says Frank Martin was his father and his birth place south wales too. They did not list any names for mother only that she was born in south wales also.I also have info that charles martin was married on June 27, 1875 in boone iowa. It shows spouse as Mrs. tilley.I know this is my great great grandmother as she was married to a george tilley from england than later divorced. I dont know what toen is in south wales but I always heard something about Pontypridd?
