Ruth is the daughter of John Martin & Drucilla Williams. She was the grand daughter of John Martin, Sr. who came to America in 1755 from Ireland. This Martin family is my family. Another son of John Martin, Sr. was Thomas Martin born in 1759 and died in 1815 in Christian County, Kentucky who is in my direct line of ancestors. Thomas was Ruth's uncle.
