Thank you for this information. If I understand it correctly, we can
1. we have John Nicholas Martin married to the wrong spouse
2. The John Martin married to Mary Ulrich, daughter of Daniel, was
not the son of Nicholas Martin born 1721.
I found a note with some of the info I had stored away. It was from
Diane Miller, dated June 17, 2003:
>My information for the John Martin, Sr. line ... has not been
>verified. However, various sources state that Jacob Shively, Sr.,
>born 1767 married Elizabeth Martin born 1772, daughter of John
>Martin and Maria Ulrich.
I believe Gladys Royer was involved in that discussion, also, and I
see a message from you about that same time.
Thanks for find this!
