My paternal grandmother was Grace Floretta Martin, who married Mansel Levi McCrea.  Her great grandparents, Jacob Martin (11 August 1798 - 1871)  and Susannah Overholser (20 January 1798 - 1870) were married in Montgomery County, Ohio, 16 August 1818.  They moved to Adams Township, Darke County, Ohio, around 1832 and were pioneer residents of the area.  Jacob and Susannah had 11 children and 85 grandchildren.  There are links below to .pdf files with information on Susannah Overholser and her ancestors.  For information on her husband, Jacob Martin, and his ancestors, follow this link to my MARTIN PAGE

The .pdf files on my Martin page and the .pdf files on my Overholser page can be combined into a 9 chapter book ANCESTORS AND FAMILY OF JACOB MARTIN (1798-1871 AND SUSANNAH OVERHOLSER (1798-1870 PIONEER RESIDENTS OF DARKE COUNTY, OHIO.  Follow this link to a title page and annotated table of contents for that book.
