Hello,

I am searching for the parents of Charles Samuel Martin ( http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Martin-24030&public=1 .

He was born on the 7th July of 1875 in Nashville Tennessee.

I was not able to find his birth certificate or a census entry of him and his family in 1880 or 1890.

The sources I have already found are linked in his Wikitree profile.

Can anyone of you help me finding more information about him or tell me where I possibly could find information on him?

 

Thank You!

Thanks for your help!
I do already know this record.
The reason Charles traveled so much was probably that he was a merchant of profession.
He was white but because of some information I gained about his son it is possible that he was a jew.
