Trying to locate who the father was of Charles Charley Martin, grandson of Jacob Floyd Martin, pastor Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church, Itawamba, Mississippi.
Charles Martin was murdered near Itasca, Hill County, Texas on April 12, 1899. His uncle (info published in newspaper) was Ira P. Martin. Ira P was the son of Jacob Floyd Martin and Caroline Clayton Martin of Itawamba Mississippi. I have names of all of Ira's brothers and sisters and have been researching...but cannot find the missing link. Charles father was mentioned only as "Old Man Martin" living in/near Hill Co., Tx in 1899...in the news articles of the day. This substantiates that he was alive and well in 1899 when the killing took place. He should be on the 1900 Hill County, Texas census...but there are a ton of possibles...but nothing obvious. None of Ira's siblings are listed that I can tell. Any clue...or help appreciated! Does anyone have a Charles Martin listed as a son of one these siblings??

Malinda Caroline Martin Friday
Thomas Frank Martin
Asbury Wesley Martin
Edmund or Edward H. Martin
Jasper Mayfield Martin
William r. F. Martin
Jacob Floyd Martin
Ira P. Martin...claims to be his uncle
Milton Newton Martin (no way...too young)
The descendants of Charley Martin would dearly love to know they are connected to this fine family... and how they are connected.
Thanks for any help.
