Martin Family Tree

My Martin family tree starts with my grandfather, Elmer Matthew Martin.

This picture of Elmer was taken in Illinois. Elmer Martin was born 16 Mar 1887 in Rock Island, Illinois to John Stephen Martin and Elizabeth Dorothea Weiss.  Elmer first married Elizabeth Coyne.  There were no children and the marriage ended in divorce.  Elmer then married Maymie Pearl Wilson in Cortez, Colorado.  They had two sons.

Both the Martin & Weiss families had settled in Rock Island County, Illinois.  

All of the families in the Martin family tree are of German heritage. The Martin family came from Oberfranken, Bayern, Germany and the Weiss family came from Donau, Wuerttemberg, Germany.

Surnames in this family line include: Martin, Weiss, Castner, Heim, Traub, Thuring, Mueller, Maendle, Kissling, Schmid, Zwicker and Fickenscher.
