The farm in Summerfield was owned by Henry and Amanda Martin, and my family worked this land for generations.

Sarah Jane Martin and Simon Robins are the parents of my great-grandmother Mary Ella (“Mel”, “Mary”) Martin-Morton b. 1897. Sarah Jane Martin and Simon Robins were neighbors, and grew up together.

Family stories say Simon Robins died, and it is likely Sarah Jane had relatives help care for her young daughter. I believe Aunt Julia helped raise Mary, though her connection to the Robins and Green(e) families remained strong throughout her life.

I can find no record of Sarah Jane Martin or Sarah Jane (J) Green(e) living with her daughter. Family stories also say Sarah Jane died at a young age.

The Green(e) are kin to the Martins, in many ways our family line has become one through ties of marriage and loyalty. I also found Jim Green(e) and Sarah J. Martin listed in…
