THEIR SEVEN CHILDREN:
Susanna MARTIN, married Alexander EDGAR, died May 7, 1885
NOTES & DOCUMENTS
The gravestone erected by George Crean Martin gives the description of his father as “Allan Martin ‘Late of Ringfad’" Ringfad is a townland in Ardglass at the entrance of Killough Harbour in the Irish Sea. It is 181 acres and was where St. Patrick was supposed to have landed in the 5th Century AD. There was a shipwreck noted there on December 18, 1858. Several other wrecks in subsequent years were near this point. Clearly a tricky stretch of water just offshore from this land. We do not know whether Allan MARTIN owned the townland or was a tenant there, but I suspect the former.
According to a letter from H. Wallace & Co. dated November 17, 1923 and copied to Mrs. T. Jackson Browne, Jane MARTIN sr. willed a property in Ballee to her daughter Jane MARTIN which upon the death of Jane MARTIN Jr. was to be distributed amongst all the daughters of Jane MARTIN Sr..
