"Valentine Martin was probably the son of Martin Martin and Sarah Hix. He was baptized on June 18, 1710 in St. Peter's Episcopal Parish of New Kent County, Virginia - exact date of birth is unknown.
A land deed dated May 15, 1739, listed Valentine Martin purchasing 200 acres along the Willis River from Merry Webb for Eight Pounds - located at that time in Goochland County, Virginia.
On March 15, 1744, Valentine received patent for 400 more acres lying adjacent and on both sides of the Cat Tail Branch of the same river. The land is now located in Cumberland County since that section of Goochland County became Cumberland County in 1749.
Valentine married Jane Bridgewater and they had at least eleven children. His will was probated on July 28, 1760 and burial took place on the south side of his farm in what was known as Burnt Chimney Cemetery. When the cemetery was visited in 1954 by Valentine Martin Family Historian, John R. Martin, there were no stones."

Valentine Martin baptized on 18 Jun 1710 was not the father of the Orson Martin who married Susannah Gannaway. Unknown father of this Orson.

Some family researchers have listed Martin Martin b abt 1665 but information indicates he didn't have a son named Orson. Perhaps Martin Martin had a brother or nephew who is an ancestor of the Orson/Austin Martin who married Susannah Gannaway.

Valentine is 16 degrees from Cheryl Hess, 25 degrees from John Lennon and 13 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
