Thomas Martin, Jr., Hick's Father's will was probated in York District,
South Carolina on 6 August 1855 and Henderson Martin was appointed
Hicks and Margaret (Casey) Martin moved from Forsyth County to Cherokee
County, Georgia and then to Carroll County, Georgia. Valentine Martin (can
not prove the connection) sold Number 235 in the tenth district of Carroll
County to Hicks Martin on 15 August 1856. Hicks paid $300 for 101 1/4
acres. This is the original Martin home place next door to J. Roy Martin.

Then over on page 89 is a photo of Hicks Martin in his younger days.
Below that is thought to be a photo of Thomas Martin Jr. Hicks' Father.

Hicks Martin MG signed the marriage Licenses of my Father's Parents in
Carroll County GA as he married them there in Mt. Zion at the Methodist
Church that he helped to name when it was founded. This marriage took place
on Oct. 21, 1900.

Hicks and Margaret Martin also had Cordillia Martin who grew up and married
James Amos Entriken right there in Carroll County, GA. I also have the
Entriken Family History done by a cousin Philip Entriken and Can quote from
that if you'd like.

I also have Census Extract out of Atlanta Ga taken at the Atlanta GA
Archives M432-69 GA Forsyth Co. 31st. Dist. Samuel Paxton Oct. 4,

Margaret 28 f SC can not read or write

I joined the DAR under Thomas Martin My National Number is #794476

My Cert. that hangs on my wall was also approved by Barbara Tucker Harrall
the Reg. Gen. of the DAR and my Cousins who also joined under Thomas Martin.

Any questions left? I would be more than willing to copy, photograph and
mail any thing that may prove helpful to you in your own research.

Best of luck,
