1. SIR SIDNEY SMITH3 MARTIN (JOHN E.2, JOB1)1,2,3,4,5 was born May 22, 1830 in Fayette Co. WV, and died June 15, 1908 in Craigsville, Nicholas Co. WV. He married MARY ELIZABETH MARTIN August 28, 1856 in Kanawha County, West Virginia, daughter of JOB MARTIN and DICY TERRY. She was born July 21, 1839 in Fayette Co. WV, and died May 28, 1910 in Craigsville, Nicholas Co., WV.

Notes for SIR SIDNEY SMITH MARTIN:

Could he have been named after D.C. Smith-His father was an appraisor

of D. C. Smith will, book 1 page 43-November 1837-Fayette Co., WV.

From James Hanna March 21, 1996-I don't know the Date he came to Craigsville, but, Smith Martin and his son Nathan Miles Martin bought 25 acres at Craigsville (where the drive-in theater is now located), from Robert Stockton, James V. Stockton and Olivia Stocken, his wife for $275.00 in 1883. There was a log house on the property that was occupied by Virginia M Schoolcraft who I was told was a cousin, however, in my genealogical research I haven't found the connection. (At this writing part of the log house is still standing and is used for storage. I don't know of Smith ever lived in this house or not.

In 1888, Smith Martin's son Jarrett Dickison (Dick) Martin bought 30 acres joining this property from William I.F. Collison, which had a log house just across the road from the Schoolcraft house. Smith moved into that house adn lived there until his death, 15 June 1908.

Smith was a jack of all trades as were many men of his day. He was a blacksmith and had a shop on the southeast corner of the 30 acre tract at the forks of the road just below his house. He also tanned hides for leather and made shoes, harness;, etc. He farmed and grafted apple trees for his orchard. He had a fine orchard with a large variety of apples.

(From Centennial History of Alderson Baptist Church)-After the turmoil of the Civil War had cleared away, New settlers came into the area of Beaver Creek, Nicholas Co. Among these were some staunch Baptist families who first met together to worship God and form a church. They met in a small log school house about one quarter mile east of the present location of Alderson Baptist Church. In 1883, this group organized themselves into a church/ Rev. Alfred McClellan and a Rev. Tomlinson were in charge of this action. Rev. McClellan was called as the first pastor. The first deacons were Thomas Hicks, Albert Huff and Smith Martin.

Sir Sidney Smith Martin is buried in the Alderson Church Cemetery beside his wife and his son Jarrett Dickinson Martin and other family members.
