My ancestor, Willam Edward Martin (1832-1908), moved to Oxford, Sumter County, Florida. Since many people would relocate where they had family, I thought I would do some hunting to see if I could find any related Martin family members in Sumter County. Maybe someone can help me draw lines or disprove any "possible" connections.

The family of Harmon Martin has some interesting items. If you go back a few generations, the Harmon Martin family is also from South Carolina. Additionally, Harmon has a son named Marvin - my great uncle's name and great grandfather's middle name.
