Relatives state that originally, the family came from South Carolina to Elberton. They took the Charity Ferry over the (Old) Savannah River, (which is currently Hartwell Lake due to the building of a dam). They settled Middleton, (and Elberton), Elbert Co. They were predominantly farmers (cotton) and George worked as a railroad man/pumper for the Seaboard Airline Railroad (S.A.L.). The family was Methodist, (Bethel Methodist Church) although the Ashworths and Powells were Baptist and attended Rock Branch Baptist Church.

When George worked for the railroad, George Longstreet Stalnaker, a member of another Stalnaker family (relationship to his mother and stepmother, both Stalnakers is unknown at this time) worked as a car builder for the railroad - and George's younger (step) sister Victoria married him.

George's death certificate indicates his mother's name was Resa Stalnaker, but she was his stepmother, sister to his biological mother, America Stalnaker.

Occupation: Farming, Cotton, Railroad.

Buried Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Notes for THOMAS OSBORNE MARTIN: Thomas worked for the railroad as a young man. During the building of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad during the 1920's, he left Georgia for Florida to work. In 1927 he met and married his first wife Lilliam Stanford in Hillsborough Co., Tampa, Florida. They separated and he moved to Michigan. They divorced. No further information is known at this time about what happened to her.

In the late 1920's, Thomas boarded with the Wiltse family. He met and married Mella Wiltse. He first worked the Saginaw Foundry. He didn't like the conditions there, so he found a job with the City of Saginaw street maintenance department. He worked his way up to the position of supervisor of East Side Saginaw. It was his responsibility to make sure the streets were maintained in the summer and plowed in the winter.

His relationship with Mella was one of adoration - he put her on a pedastal, and nobody knows why! She could be very bossy and was "always right".

Notes for LILLIAN STANFORD: Divorced - no children from this marriage.

Marriage Notes for THOMAS MARTIN and LILLIAN STANFORD: Marriage license was filed for on 4-16-1927 - signed by Judge T.H. Cornelius. Date of Marriage 4-20-1927. Witnesses H.P. Dorsett and Mrs. D.P. Dorsett. Marriage record filed 5-2-1927 at Hillsborough Co. Courthouse.

Notes for MELLA MARIE WILTSE: Mella was quite talented as an artist, although she did her painting for personal enjoyment. She and Tom were members of the First United Methodist Church. Family members tell me she was a rather mean person, almost as mean and viscious as her mother! They said things that hurt people's feelings and didn't seem to have any remorse whatsoever. While her husband, Tom, was friendly and outgoing, a fun-loving prankster, Mella remained introverted and didn't care to associate with others whom she felt were not up to her standards.

Children of THOMAS MARTIN and MELLA WILTSE are:

12. i. JAMES IRVIN5 MARTIN, b. 13 Jan 1932, Saginaw, MI.
