Generation 2

 

2. JOHN JEFFERSON2MARTIN (James1) was born in 1847 in Abbeville, SC. He died about 1879 in Elbert, Georgia, USA. He married (1) AMERICA “CHRISTINE” STALNAKER, daughter of Benjamin Ager “Bennie” Stalnaker and Elizabeth Crenshaw, about 1861. She was born about 1842 in Abbeville, South Carolina.

Notes for John Jefferson Martin: In the book “Elbert County Georgia marriages 1805-1913” – Compiled by Ann Clark Holloman there is a record of a Mary T. Stalnaker married John J. Martin in 01 Oct 1867. Census of 1850 also shows him age 1, b. 1849 Census of 1870 has him listed as born in 1849 as which leaves room to wonder about whether people knew how old they were. Could the birth date of first child, Verona, be an error? If not, John would have been 11-12 years old when his first child was born. Unable to find a marriage record to first wife America Christine. We are assuming that she died in childbirth or shortly thereafter, and her sister Mary Teresa then married John and raised their children.
