KEY TO MARTIN FAMILY PHOTO TAKEN IN THE SUMMER OF 1903


This is a key to the photo of Eliza Burns Martin and her 
family taken in the summer of 1903 in front of the family 
home in the NE  of Section 11, Township 10, Range 3, in 
Adams Township, Darke County, Ohio. Eliza and David Martin 
had 13 children.  The number in front of a person's name 
indicates how that person fits into the family.  For 
example, 5 is their fifth child, 1H is the husband of 
their first child, 2W is the wife of their second child, 
and 3-5 is the fifth child of their third child.  A married 
name is given only if the person was married at the time 
of the photo.  
The key is followed by a complete list of family members
born before 1903. It appears that Eliza Burns Martin and 
all the living members of her family except 2-2. Edward 
David (or David E.) Martin, 3-4. David Lawrence Martin, 
1-2. David M. Bayman, his wife, Rosetta Harless Bayman, 
and possibly their two children, 1-2-1. Sarah Margueritte 
Bayman and 1-2-2. Marion Bayman, are in this photo.
Thanks to Oma Martin Lehman, daughter of 12. Daniel Martin, 
for identifying the people in this photo.  Educated guesses 
that are not definite are enclosed in parenthesis.  The one 
couple that Oma could not identify are very likely 1-1. 
James Bayman and his wife Edith.  Three of their seven 
children, 1-1-1. Lova Marie Bayman, 1-1-2. Forest R. 
Bayman, and 1-1-3. Elmira Fern Bayman, were born before 
1903 and are probably among the children in the photo.  
James and Edith Bayman might have brought the two children 
of James's brother David, who would die of tuberculosis in 
August, 1903.  Other unidentified children are probably 
stepchildren of 6. Allen Martin, children of the first 
marriage of his second wife, Mahala Ella Brewer Keihl.  
Mahala had seven children in her first marriage, six living 
as of the 1900 and 1910 censuses.  In the 1900 census, she 
was a widow living with Samuel Kiehl born 11/1891, David 
Kiehl born 10/1893, Ira Kiehl born 10/1895, and Ella Mae 
Kiehl born 7/1897. Ira and Ella Mae were the only ones who 
were living with Allen and Mahala Martin in the 1910 census.
