Hattie's mother Mariah had a sister named Rachel, who was the first wife of my 3rd great grandfather, Alexander Smith. I know I'm not related to the Martins, but I've been researching them hoping to find some additional information about Alex. I have little information on him...mainly just marriages & census records 1850-1880 so I'm trying to find where he came from, his parents and where & when he died. Through his first marriage he had 3 children...Abraham (named after Mariah & Rachel's father?), Henry & Julia. Julia was born the same year Rachel died (guessing childbirth) and was living with her aunts Mariah & Catherine & grandparents Abraham W & Nancy H Dobbins Martin. I have tracked Henry down but can't find anything about Abraham or Julia.
Thanks for posting the picture. Hoping some small tidbit of info will open up information for me about my Smiths.
