My Martin group moved from SC to Baltimore when my Grandfather was young, probably in the 1930s or 1940s. I don't have much info on this group, and although my grandfather and his parents are recorded as white, the photographs of my great-grandfather's sisters and parents would seem to indicate possible african american ancestry. The earliest Martin that I have is Samuel Marion Martin (1866-1952) who married Addlyn Lee. Their children were Claudious, Callie, William, Gussie, Albert, Lydie, Heyward, Ethel, and Sadielu. Claudious' children were Clifton, Joseph and Dorothy.
