Elizabeth MARTIN's father and mother, John and Anna MARTIN, lived in Adair county in the early 1800s. Elizabeth married James G. ALLEN in Randolph county, Missouri in 1841. James was born in 1813 in Casey county, which is immediately north of Adair county. James' aunt, Peggy, married a SCOTT in there in the Adair region before moving to Illinois. We hope to correspond with other ALLEN/MARTIN/SCOTT searchers. Yours truly, Bill and Loydean ALLEN.

Hi Bill, My name is Bev. and I saw your post on the Adair Co., Ky. query forum about Elizabeth Martin. Was she possibly the daughter of James Martin? He had a daughter that was born about 1820 in Ky.(probably Adair Co.,Ky as that was where most of his children were born.) If so do you have any information on her famliy?(Like who the mother was or farther back on her father.)I have the rest of her siblings and approx. when they were born. My line is from his son Hartwell's line. I hope we can be of help to each other. Bev.

James Allen

I have John Martin b. Abt. 1834 in Adair Co. and d. 1865 I believe in Green Co. Ky. or near Green and Adair line. He was shot and killed by a woman whose husband was killed by the vigillandies because he robbed a place. John Martin belonged to the vigillandies and may have possibly been the one who shot him. Does anyone know this story or where I might find information on it. This info is what has been passed down in the family. John married Martha A. (Pasty) Sharp and had two children; Joseph and John Hickman Martin, my ggrandfather. I wonder if John is related someway to the Hartwell Martin line? Thanks for any help on this.
