My g-g-grandfather was Rufus Martin. Do you have any more info on yours? Mine lived in Oklahoma before moving to Texas in about 1885. He was married to Georgia Crow. I believe he was born in Geogia. He was born in 1858 and died in 1940 in Bowie Co., TX.

Surnames: Martin, Miller , Patterson , Barbour County Alabama, 1883
Dear James , I have a Edward Rufus Martin , in my family , he lived in Louisiana , and someone tore up all the names in his Martin Family Bible , the only name left, was Dinah Crow Martin . How interesting that you would have similar names in your family . My Grandfather was born in Alabama in 1881 died in Louisiana July 20 1958. His father , same name , was born in South Carolina April 1839 . We are looking for any information on this family . We know they lived in Barbour County , Alabama, when my grandfather was born , his dad killed Pleasant B.Patterson , in 1883 , my grandfather was 2 yrs old at that time . When he was still very young , his mother, Sarah Elizabeth Miller Martin , took him from Alabama , and somehow went to Louisiana. She must have told him not to talk about all this . He didn't untill 6 months before his death . He wanted to go back to Alabama and find his Family , it was to late , he didn't get to go . So I am trying to do the next best thing . I want to find them for him . Leta Martin Terrell

Great. What do you have?

The only info I have is the line of their daughter, Katie Lou "Tommie" Martin. She and her husband, George Walter Reed, were my g-grandparents.

I do know the birth/death dates for Rufus and his second wife(been to the Hubbard Chapel Cemetery many times), but I know nothing for sure about Georgia Crow or their parents.

Thanks,

James Reed

Surnames: crow-bohanan

I have a tree in ancestory.com (martinfamilytree2) that has a lot of the info but I cant find much on her. My grandfather morgan martin was her oldest child. She gave birth to him at age 15 before her and Rufus married in camp county texas. We have always been told he was a Bohanan and that he took the Martin name.My cousin said that Georgia is buried with Rufus and Morgan with no marker. His second wife is Buried there with a marker.i have an aunt on Morgans wife's side who married a crow and there are Bohanans on that side.I feel if we can find the bohanan - crow link we may find her also. If you will send me your e-mail to texaspringer@aol.com I'll send you the link to the tree. i have a few pictures of grave markers.
My name is scott martin son of Henry and Arlene martin
