Hi John,

Do you know who Martha Jane's father was. I have a Martha Bethany, b.1844 MS. Her father was Thomas N. Bethany, b. 1806/07, possibly in SC. I do not have who she married or any of her children's names.

I also have a Martha Jane Murray, b. ABT 1830, m. James Thornton Bethany, ABT 1855.

Is one of these your ancestor?

My great-grandmother was also named Martha Jane Bethany. She was married to a Cole, then to my great-grandfather, Jacob Robinson. Her parents were Charles Homer Bethany, b.1822, NC? and Martha A. Pierce, b. 1840, TN. We have not been able to connect Charles H. with any siblings or parents.

I am interested in whatever information you have on the Bethany's and the Murray's that married into the family. There might be a connection there somewhere.

Jean Cloke
