Any idea of name of children. I am at a dead end on a Belinda Martin (also written as Melinda)who was born in 1826 (in PA). She married Frederick Allman in Ohio/Marshall VA/WVA county and died in Wood county WVA in 1900.
I would love to find out more about her. Any Melinda/Belinda's?
There were also many Martins in Marshall county WVA (and surrounding Ohio/PA areas, supposedly originally from New Jersey. Some were very early settlers. In fact, Martin's Ferry is named for some. Hope that helps.
