In loving memory of Jordan and Jane “Judge” MARTIN family of Dallas County, Alabama. Family tree and descendants of the Martins.

The Martin family is joined with the Forts through Mary Ella Martin Morton and Pettus Fort, who had one son together, Robert, born in 1910.  Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section. If you are a descendant of any of these families, please leave a message and I will be glad to connect you to other kin. ❤

Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church added to National Register of Historic Places

Family stories say my uncle Wes Martin was a brick mason who helped build the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Selma, Alabama…he died a year after it’s completion, leaving behind a grieving wife and four small children.

Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church (Selma, AL)

Tabernacle Baptist Church

Where: 1431 Broad Street Selma, Alabama

Visit Tabernacle Baptist Onlinehttp://tbcselma.net

Listed on National Register of Historic Places: July 10, 2013

Significance: Eligible for listing in the National Registry of Historical Places for it’s significance to social history, religion, ethnic importance and architectural importance.

Social History: Tabernacle Baptist has connections to the Civil Rights Movement in Selma (1922-1968). It was the site for many of the meetings and rallies of the Civil Rights Movement,, working alongside other community groups, churches and organizations including the Brown Chapel A.M.E.  Rev. Louis Lloyd Anderson opened the doors to Tabernacle Baptist for the first mass meeting for voting rights. Rev. Anderson later ran for political office in a segregated Selma. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at Tabernacle Baptist on two separate occasions.

Religion and Ethnic Importance: Tabernacle Baptist was founded in 1885 and built its present building in 1922, it is an established place of religious, community and cultural significance in Selma. Tabernacle Baptist is also the home of four presidents of The National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.; the largest Baptist denominational group in the U.S.

Architectural Importance: The Tabernacle Baptist Church is a Classical Revival, designed in 1922 by a congregation member named David T. West, an African-American architect. According to the National Register of Historic Places program, “It is the most formidable Classical Revival design of any African American institution in Selma from the Jim Crow era.”

The Classical Revival style is based on the architecture of classical Greece and Rome.

Source Citation: Year: 1910; Census Place: Summerfield, Dallas, Alabama; Roll T624_11; Page: 7B; Enumeration District: 64; Image: 53.

Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1910 United States Federal Census

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…

1900 Census, Summerfield, My Family Line:
Martin, Sarah J. Black. Head (25) born April 1875.

Green, Jim. Black. Head (29) born May 1871. *I believe he is the brother of Solomon “Sol” Green(e) and son of Silas and Margarett Green(e)*

Martin, Julia. Black. Head (18) born 1882. (The daughter of Judge and Jordan Martin, sister of Sarah Jane., she is said to have helped care for Sarah Jane’s daughter.)

Matin (Martin), Jim (this probably is “James” son Judge and Jordan Martin, brother of Sarah Jane). Black. Head (26) born 1876.
Lucy, 1888.
Frank, 1896.
Hubbard, August 1898.
Jordan, July 1899.
