      Hello David,

      Here is some of the information that I have to give you about my
      grandfather's family.

      Luther Pink Martin - Birth 13 Aug. 1872
      death 30 Aug. 1928
      Parents Samuel Alexander Martin - birth 16 Mar. 1848
      death 2 Mar. 1909
      Sarah Valisha Marion b. 17 June 1848
      d. 17 May 1906
      Marriage date was 15 Sept. 1870

      Luther married Tennessee C. Poindexter 9 Jan. 1895

      Children of Luther and Tennessee (Tenny)

      Glenn Luther Martin - b. 26 Sept. 1896
      d. 21 Jan 1969
      Married Maggie Lee Myers 6 Sept. 1913 I think they had 4 children. Mable,
      Dolly, Clarence can't remember the other name but will send if I locate it.

      Just to give you a little background on the family. After my grandmother
      Tenny died of cancer when my mother was a baby, Luther moved the family from
      East Bend, NC to Omaha, NE. That was in about 1915 when my mother was around
      4 years old. Glenn was already married and stayed behind in NC. My mother
      only saw him one more time when she was about 8 years old and he came to
      Omaha for a visit. The Omaha cousins never knew the North Carolina cousins.

      Mattie Volish Martin - b. Aug 1897
      d. 3 Apr 1898

      Wayne McKeever Martin - b.19 Jan 1900
      d. 1960 Buried at Westlawn-Hillcrest
      Cem. in Omaha

      John Gaither Martin (went by Gaither) b. 13 May 1903
      d. 1960 Buried at
      Westlawn also

      Wayne and Gaither never married and lived together (at least when they were
      They died about 2 weeks apart.

      DeEtte Bessie Martin b. 22 Feb 1905
      d. 1 June 1987 Buried at Westlawn
      married Eugene McFarland 5 Sept 1923

      Aunt DeEtte and Uncle Mac never had children. She was like a little mother
      to the family after her mother died and was more like a grandmother to her
      nieces and nephews than an aunt.

      Velma Tennessee Martin - b. 23 Dec 1906
      d. 1988
      Married Edgar Parker Morton and they had one son, Richard.

      Estelle Margaret Martin - b. 9 Dec. 1908
      d. 1968
      married to Stanley Anderson (Shinny)

      Estelle had one child by a previous marriage Virginia Joan Hoffman.
      Uncle Shinny and Aunt Estelle had 3 children Stanley, Shirley and William.

      Edith Katherine Martin - b. 2 Jan 1911
      d. 9 May 1989
      married James Andrew Babb 19 Sept 1929
      James (Jimmy) was born 17 Oct. 1907
      died 28 Mar 1989
      They had 5 children Robert Walter, Barbara Louise, William LeRoy, Gerald
      Arthur and Patricia Ann.

      Luther worked for a buggy shop in East Bend and when work became slow he
      moved to Omaha and worked in an automobile shop. I have a picture of him in
      front of the shop.

      Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
