Help on Finding Ancestor I'm Looking For
Janine Martin
- Close

I am having trouble finding information on my great grandfathers  If someone could assist I would be most appreciative. 

Grandmother's Father

Name: Austin H Smith   

Married to: Charlotte I. Brandt  Children: Violet Louise Smith, Ralph Smith, Olive Smith, Iver Smith, Martha Smith.  Tentative guess on parents is James Smith and Ester (no last name).  My Grandmother Violet grew up in Massachusetts so that's where I'd assume they were from.  My grandmother was born in Aug 5 1907 so I would assume they were between 20 and 40 years old putting their birth between 1867 and 1887.

Grandfather's Father

Name: George Harold Martin Jr.

 Don't know who he's married to.  His father is most likely George Harold Martin.  His Children included Bryon Nichols Martin and Paul Clark Martin.  Byron was born in Sep 16 1909 so I would assume they were between 20 and 40 years old putting their birth between 1869 and 1889.  I would also think the lived in Massachusetts or some neighboring state.

I would like to find out birth and death dates and places.  Marriage dates would be nice too.  Plus any line back on their siblings or parents would be helpful.
