Quote: When You Remember Me

“When you remember me, it means you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are.

It means you can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles stand between us.” — Frederick Buechner

Race: Negro

Occupation: Farm Laborer

Frank Martin is a cousin. Another cousin that worked for Sol & Lucy Greene is Herbert Martin.

Sol and Lucy (Callens) Greene lived in Summerfield, Dallas County, Alabama and worked as farmers, they are also relatives.

I believe the parents of Frank Martin are Jim (James, b. 1873) and Lucy Martin (b. 1888). Jim is the brother of my (g) great-grandmother, Sarah Jane Martin. Which makes Frank Martin a cousin.
