Perhaps some with Martin kin can help this Johnson County inquiry.

1960 and other Texas Martins
Dear Mr. Wyly,
Thanks so much for your recollections of so many MARTIN names.
The Jim D. Martin who was living at Joshua, TX in 1960, was born in 1903
Montague Co TX. I do not know who he married, or if he had kids, or when
Jim D. Martin was s/o Joe Allen Martin b. 1857 TN and Nancy Elizabeth
Doolen, aka Nannie. Jim's middle name possibly was Doolen?
Jim would have grown up on his father's farm in Sunset, Montague Co, TX
In 1960, Jim D. Martin had a brother Roy B. Martin living in Oklahoma,
another brother Joe A. Martin living in Vernon TX. Both Roy and Joe are
buried in Marlow, OK.
Jim D. Martin would have had the following siblings: May W. Martin b.
TX, Dan Lee Martin b. 1893 TX (school superintendant of Bowie, TX), Jesse
Martin b. 1894 TX, Joe Martin b. 1899 TX (m. Ora B. Gandy), Roy B. Martin
1905 TX (m. Leila Gandy). As of 1960 when Roy B. Martin died in OK, his
only surviving siblings were Joe A. Martin and Jim D. Martin.
The father of Jim D. Martin (Joe Allen Martin) grew up in Lexington,
Henderson Co TN, but came to Navarro Co TX (Corsicanna area) in 1878, and
there is where he married
Nancy Elizabeth Doolen.
The father of Joe Allen Martin was William M. Martin b. 1826 Rockingham
NC, he married Mary M. Young in 1847 there, and they had 2 children there
before moving to Lexington, Henderson Co TN, where they had more
After he died there in 1870, the widow and some of her children and her
husband's cousin moved to Navarro Co TX.
I am looking for Jim D. Martin, of Joshua, TX.
