These are the Martin and Wilson pictures and documents I have collected and found by researching the internet and from family members.
 
In order to have enough space for all documents and pictures, I made most of them thumbnails that you can click on to enlarge. I will put in the birth and death dates as I research to find the correct dates as there are always so many differant opinions of the dates.

The Martin family and Concord College
The Martin family had a key role in establishment of Concord College -- now Concord University -- at Athens, Mercer County, W.Va. "...on February 28, 1872, the West Virginia Legislature passed 'an Act to locate a Branch State Normal School, in Concord Church, in the County of Mercer.' But land and a building were needed, and no State funds were appropriated. Five families - The Fannings, Frenches, Holroyds, Martins, and Vermillions - principally were responsible for meeting the challenge and getting the school established. Classes started on May 10, 1875, with 70 students." (Source: Concord University, History & Goals, Accessed 11 May 2010....http://www.concord.edu/about-concord/history-goals) ***William Harvey Martin*** donated six acres of land for the project. When asked what he wanted for the land, William replied just enough calico material to make wife Martha a dress. "When he died (in 1909), classes were dismissed at Concord and the entire student body marched in the funeral procession to show respect."
