      --- Belinda Savage, a genealogist in Jackson County, did somediggingfor me and found Sarah Martin's maiden name of Doster. Belinda is compiling information for a rather comprehensive book on Jackson County including information from death certificates. So, she had the information from a copy of George and Sarah Martin's daughter's (Ella) death certificate. Sarah Doster was listed as Ella's mother along with George Martin as father. - Andrew R White - Webster, New York
