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.

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.
