Willam Edward Martin (1832-1908), was born in South Carolina and moved through Alabama and then on to Florida. According to family stories, he had supposedly had siblings John, Luellen, Tolliver, (William), and sister Sarah.

I found one family in South Carolina that had a Tolliver and William in the same family.
