NOTE: Beth R, one of our great obit typists for Fountain County states that Martin (Via Indiana Marr Collection, 1800-191 Marion Co IN Marriages Bk 119 p 43) married Emma Hesterbell Truman 11 April 1922 in Marion Co IN. This marriage record said Emma Christenberry but is indeed Emma Hesterbell Truman. Thanks, Beth
