NOTES: Traditionally, John MARTIN Sr. came over from Ireland with
two brothers; one brother lived in South Carolina and the other
brother moved out west somewhere. John was supposed to've fought
in the Civil War, and there is even a Confederate marker placed at
what is believed to be his burial site on Germany Mountain in
Clayton, Rabun Co., GA. I have not been able to independently
confirm his service, however. In fact, the first record I have for
John Sr. is his marriage record to Celia CARVER, whose family lived
in the Chechero area of Rabun County, along the South Carolina
border.
