Direct-line descendant Martin males needed for DNA testing. We are trying to tie together, or untangle, the Martin lines of Burke / Caldwell North Carolina as paper trails are exhausted. We have been able to connect Martins in Lincoln / Catawba with Martins in Burke / Caldwell through Y DNA and hope to piece together even more. We know some of these Martin lines scattered out to Warren County, Tennessee and surrounding regions. If you are a direct male Martin descendant with roots in Burke / Caldwell / Lincoln Counties, North Carolina, or you know one who may be interested; please contact for more information on the Martin DNA Project.
