In Albemarle County, I show our ancestor b. 18 Sep 1740 in
Charlottesvile, d. 18 Dec. 1808 in Belle Mont, Henry Co. VA. He was the son of Col. Joseph Martin (b. 1702 in Bristol,
Somerset, England, d. 1761 in Charlottesville. Brig. Gen.
Martin's mother I show as Sussanah Childs/Chiles b. 1714
in VA, the daughter of John Childs/Chiles and Eleanor
Weber who d. 29 June 1754 in Charlottesville. Joseph, Sr.,
then married Ann Pulliam 28 June 1755.
Brig. Gen. Martin had 5 wives: Sarah Ann Lucas, married
1763 in Orange Co, VA; Elizabeth "Betsy" Ward, in 1775
in Cherokee Nation East, TN; Mary Emory about 1781;
Susannah Graves 1784 in Henry Co. VA; Susannah Emory (don't
have marriage date).
We are descended through a son of Joseph Martin II and his
3rd wife, Susannah Emory (1/4 Cherokee), born in 1754 in TN, the daughter of William Emory and Mary Grant. She died in VA but I don't show where. One of their children became Judge John Martin who was elected first Supreme Judge of the
Cherokee Nation in 1821.
If you send me your email, I'll send you what else I have.
