Trying to find Martin

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Heather Report 14 Mar 2003 13:05

Hello, I'm looking for relatives on my fathers side. My grandfather, John Martin originally lived in Manchester before or during the war, he then moved up to Ashington, where he remarried twice. he had 4children. John, and Betty to his first wife in Ashinton (Northumberland) then had Ralph and Herbert Martin with his 2nd wife (3rd really) he died about 1952ish. We know that my father Ralph Martin does have half brothers and sisters somewhere, we've been told there's connections in Ireland, or possiblly Mancherster area. If this rings abell in anyone i'd love to hear from you. Thanks Heather
