    Notes 
    • The first three children were born in New York. Martin moved from Jefferson County to Somerset in Niagara County, New York and in 1870 lived with his Uncle John Dean Townsend and cousin John P. Townsend. It is in Somerset, Niagara County that his future wife is living. Apparently, Martin moved his family to Michigan after 1876 and before 1878. The uncle and cousin remained in Somerset and in fact are neighbors of Martin's father-in-law in the 1880 census.
