Bio and Links
Bio Photo "In all of us, there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from.

Without this enriching knowledge, we are left with a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, without the sure knowledge of our provenance, this yearning yields to an emptiness, a vacuum and the most disquieting loneliness."

- Alex Haley, author of "Roots"

Hi John

I've been reading some of your comments on our Martin relatives, and found myself wishing we could have a family reunion for all the Stephen Martin and Sarah Touchstone descendents. There seems to be a lot of us.

Keep up the great work.
Kay

RE: Gholston
I would prefer to use email, if we can work that out. Too much info for this venu. I'm at rosewoodrecording and that's a dot com, and the name is othercstuff there. HA bots. take that! Drop me a line and we can exchange info. I think I also left you a second question on another memorial. I'm looking for the actual source material on some of this stuff. I'm SEEING it in postings, but I never see any reference to the documentation. I'm going to go through the Spots, VA early wills in the next couple of weeks, looking for something that might be substantial. It's the Pulliam line I'm actually chasing at the moment. Not really my line, but very much a part of the Abbeville neighborhood that is my research stomping ground.

This is Dabney Gholston. I have seen it claimed in a number of places that he is the son of Anthony of Spotsylvania, but I have never seen a single doc that proves this. Are you aware of any actual documentation of these family relationships? Is there a will for Anthony? This question is actually huge - because it can go a long way to proving the roots of a number of later Abbeville families I'm working with.

This is one of the finest memorials I have ever seen. Thank you for the hard information. I wish we had this much human detail about all our folks.

Did they actually build the damn store? Someone built a go-cart track through the Hodges cemetery in Abbeville, SC - and defaced all of the graves. Blows me away.

Stephen Martin
To clarify, is this report saying that Matthew Martin is the father of Stephen who was born in 1799 and that the father of Matthew was Moses? If so, I am surprised that neither of those names were used for any of Stephen's sons, especially if the family was Scottish as I have been led to believe. A son of Moses named John was mentioned. Might he have been the father of Stephen? Any indication as to where the name McDuffie comes from? Thanks.

Hello again, been a while. Do you happen to know who Matthew Martin's parents were? Thanks.

Stephens Family SC
Do you know where I can obtain copies (printed or electronic) of the histories you mention in Samuel H. Stephens' Findagrave listing:
"The Book of Record and Brief Family History" by Edward Besaw Stephens and
"A Family History" by John R. Stephens

I am trying to trace my Stephens family back to Samuel H.

Thanks,

RE: Lucius B. Martin
Hi John,
I'm wondering if L.B. Martin's Uncle "L.B. Martin might have had a brother named John. My Grand Daddy did not, but he had an Uncle via Stephen Martin named Lucius Bellinger who died young. I'm betting he was named for this Uncle.
