Does anyone have a copy of a book titled "Carolina Scots" and written by Douglas E. Kelly and Caroline Switzer Kelly. It is a geanolical study of over a 100 years of Scottish immigration into North Carolina and has many of the names we are researching including MARTIN. If not it would surely be in the bigger libraries.
From the little shown in the index the MARTINS seemed to be located in Moore County, NC - then after the Revolutionary War started spreading out all over the place just as they spread out again after the Civil War.
Here is what I could get from that Index -
