William John Martin – Lifescape Teppline

June 16th, 1856

Time Node:  June 16, 1856 – Birth date for William John Martin

Lifescape Teppline:

For:  William John Martin and Rosa Adelle Armstrong Martin

This Lifescape Teppline is based on a compilation of family records and other historical documents.  Created by his great grandson Donald Clayton beginning on December 7, 2000.
[First posted:  2010.04.21 / Wednesday – William John Martin – Lifescape Teppline]

Notes:  William John Martin and Rosa Adelle Armstrong Martin are one of four sets of people most easily referred to me as my great grandparents – eight individuals in all.  William and Rosa were the parents of Guy Dennis Martin, one of my two grandfathers.  Guy D. Martin (now deceased) has two surviving grandchildren: Donald Clayton and Frederick Martin Clayton.

This information is being made available so that the descendants of these two people and other descendants and friends of the families of William and Rosa and of William and Esther might know and understand a portion of their lives.  It is also hoped that this information may contribute to a greater understanding of and appreciation for history.

Both Rosa Adelle Armstrong and William John Martin went by various names.  Rosa Adelle Armstrong was also Adelle Rosa Armstrong and Della Armstrong.  William John Martin was also  William J. Martin, and most often just W.J. Martin.
