Hello Ryan - I am the great, great, great grandson of Colonel Martin. My grandmother Catherine was the daughter of Harriet Slocum. Catherine had three kids (Ralph, Virginia and Marilyn). Ralph and Virginia were born in Portland but my mom (Marilyn) was born in Three Rivers, Michigan after Catherine and her husband Oscar Orr moved there after the first world war. I am 59 years old and living in West Bloomfield, Michigan. I am married and have two kids in college. Catherine died in 1960, Virginia in 1992, Ralph in 2011. Marilyn is still living but has dementia. She always talked about Colonel Martn's exploits and Uncle Ralph did some research on him at the same museum as you have in the late 1970's. Thank you for sharing your splendid work!
