Another family will here be noticed, to wit; the Martin family. The family is somewhat
extensive, both in name and its connections. The first Martin in the county, of which the
writer has any knowledge or information was Matthew Martin; have not been able to learn who
his wife was. He lived in the Maiden Down section, and raised a family of four sons and
two daughters, and perhaps, other daughters, to the write unknown; he as a thrifty man,
and accumulated a good property as a farmer for his day and time. His sons were John,
Matthew, Stephen H and Aaron: daughter's names unknown.
