      J.M. Martin to Tom Adams The State of Texas County of Knox

      Know all Men by these Presents: That I, J.M. Martin of the County of Knox and State aforesaid, for and in consideration of the sum of Two Hundred Dollars, to me in hand paid by Tom Adams the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged have Granted, Sold and Conveyed, and by these Presents do Grant, Sell and Convey, unto the said Tom Adams of the County of Knox and State of Texas, all those certain Lots of land, situated in the Town of Benjamin, Knox County, Texas and known as Lots No. One (1) and Two (2) in Block No 39. Also South half of Lot No. 8, in Block No 6, and South half Lot No. 11 in Block No. 7.

      To Have and to Hold the above described premises, together with all and singular the rights and appurtenances thereto in anywise belonging unto the said Tom Adams, his heirs and assigns, Forever. And I do hereby bind myself and my heirs, executors and administrators, to Warrant and Forever Defend all and singular the said premises unto the said Tom Adams, his heirs and assigns against every person whosoever lawfully claiming or to claim the same or any part thereof.

      Witness my hand at Benjamin, Texas this 12th day of January A.D. 1897 signed...J.M. Martin

      Lynell Cordell located the land record above, but was unable to locate a J.M. Martin in the cemetery records for Knox County, although she did find a reference to a Sarah Martin buried in the Johnson Cemetery in Munday, Knox County, but with no dates. She did not visit the cemetery. It is possible J.M. and Sarah divorced, as he was not listed in the home with Sarah and their children at the time of the 1900 census. Sarah was listed as widowed, but may have instead been divorced.

      Lynell Cordell located the following death record for a J.M. Martin:

      Texas Death Index, 1903-2000
      Name: J. M. Martin
      Death Date: 17 May 1943
      Death County: Palo Pinto
      Certificate: 24046

      Informant on death certificate #24046 was Glenn Martin (son) of Mineral Wells, Palo Pinto Co. TX. He's buried in the Jacksboro Cem.

      She also found a 1920 census in Jack Co. with J.M. Martin with wife Stella and two step-sons named Fowler.
      Then again in Jack Co. in 1930 it was Moses J. Martin and Stella. He first married at age 26 which fits the 1892 marriage date of J. M. and Sarah.
      I just put this part in his notes for now but I would bet on the death record, especially since his son Glenn, with two n's, was the informant. David Adams was supposed to be in Parker or Palo Pinto county also.

      Both can be found in separate households at the time of the 1900 census, J. M. in King County, Texas and Sally in Knox County, Texas. Each of them described themselves as "widowed" rather than divorced however.
