Seeking information on the family of William Martin who married Margaret "Maggie" Smith. They both died in the early 1920's. Their daughter, Ruby Marie Martin, married my grandfather, Thomas Richardson Oldaker. William Martin is the son of Woodson Martin. These families lived in both Mason and Putnam Counties from circa 1844 until now. William Martin and wife, Maggie, are buried at Walker Chapel Church in Putnam County. The Martin family seems to have all died at early ages...around late 50's and early 60's. My smailmail address is: Tim Daugherty, 106 Linwood Drive, Lincolnton, NC 28092.
