Looking for MARTIN of Iowa

Query by MartinR

Having lots of problems locating MARTIN data.


I have my father and Grandfather(s)being born in Iowa. Grandmothers are a different story. Robert F. Martin married Minnie M. Pantier, Their son Clarence Edward Martin married Elva Glee Blew in Iowa. Minnie was born...somewhere...Maybe Illinois, unknown. I do know where she and Robert are buried; Xenia Cemetery - Dallas County, Iowa.


Elva was born in Iowa..Rockwell City. Minnie...no idea. Elva and Clarence are buried in Medford, Oregon...they lived in California, Oregon and Washington. Elva died in California of unknown causes. Clarence died of heart condition in Renton, Washington.

I think this is your Robert C in the census above which would suggest that his mothers name was Minnie Mabel Cozett

Noggin,

Thank you for the info.

Elva martin we knew as "Glee" and she gave her middle name to my uncle Vernon who was 3 years older than I "Glee." We all thought that was weird.....never saw the name spelled as you have it. Looking for birth certificates...might not find any!

Her mother I have listed as Hazel Elizabeth Larsen Blew 30 Nov 1892 - 13 Sep 1969.

Your last post has been the most accurate. Minnie M Pantier however, is another issue. I have two...one born in WV and one in IA. The birth date: 27 Jun 1892.

Robert Floyd Martin, I have born in Iowa to Douglas and Jane(Oviat)Martin, born 13 May 1887. Working on his parents now....The search continues!

by MartinR on 2013-09-18 12:49:25

Well, You have NOW thrown a bunch of stuff that smudges everything!

Minnie M. Cazett/Pantier??? The marriage doc may be the telling piece we need. Making more sense.

Just hit me! Cloyd and Floyd each married a Minnie! Cloyd would be my Great Uncle! I am not insane after all!
