Hi Jane,

I am the secretary for the Martin family in Darke County. We have been meeting
since 1905!! We have dwindled in size since that time, each family unit breaking
off and having their own reunions... But we hope to have a huge reunion in
2005 if we can contact other families... but that's another project--- 

Here's a brief history: The Martin's were 4 brothers: Joseph (b. 1797 Pa d. 1861, In), Jacob (b. 1798 Pa d. 1871 Oh), Emanuel (b. 1801 Pa d. 1889 Oh) & Andrew (b. 1806 Pa d. 1867 In).

Joseph, Jacob, Emanuel, and Andrew Martin moved from Saltlick Twp, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, to Montgomery County, Ohio. It can be documented that the two older brothers, Joseph and Jacob, were living in Ohio by 1817. Jacob was listed as a resident of Montgomery County when he purchased land at the Cincinnati land office in July, 1817. Jacob married in Montgomery County in 1818. He married Susannah Overholser that August. She had moved to Montgomery County with her parents, John and Susannah (Snider) Overholser, in 1807.

Not long after the 1830 census, all four Martin brothers and their families moved northwest to two adjoining counties, Darke County, Ohio, and Randolph County, Indiana. Jacob moved to Darke County, Ohio. Joseph and Andrew moved to Randolph County, Indiana, and Emanuel lived at times on both sides of the state line near Union City. 

1) We have identified about 60 of the people. 
2) we'd appreciate it if anyone can identify their relatives to contact us. 
3) If anyone has group pictures from that picnic. I'd like to see them (scanned). I didn't scan it, but I have one with the children of Jacob Martin which included DWK, Mary Ann, George, Solomon, Lydia, Jacob, Orin, David & Eli. 
4) I may be able to reprint this picture if there are enough people interested. 
The original is about 7"x11".

I have the roster of who was at the reunion. The first way I have assembled the info is alphabetically and by city. We have noted how the people (we have identified in the family) are related. The other way is in what order their names were written in the book. 

What I would like is to:
1) give out the info. 
2) See if anyone recognizes anyone on the list. 
3) And anyone is welcome to contact me with that info. My e-mail is: Cindy.Michelhaugh@worldnet.att.net
