andrew marten??? ark/alabama 1816 - 1863

  of 78

Andrew H. Martin b. 1816 in Alabama...had a brother, Zachariah Martin b. 1818 in Georgia.
The family story is that their father died when they were very young from a severe nose bleed. Their mother remarried with indecent haste to a man named Cole (possibly Charles Cole). I have two entries in a family bible showing the deaths of a Charles Cole and a Mary T Cole in the 1860's. Andrew next appeared in Arkansas, married a Talitha Cumi Kersey. They had seven children. Andrew died close to the end of the Civil War from pneumonia. He was in business with Zachariah. Talitha sold the business to Zachariah, took the children and headed for Texas. Anyone out there have a clue about any part of this story??? I've been working on this for about 30 years and and becoming a bit discouraged. Thanks!
