brian mckay's family tree
We discovered George through the birth record of his son, Henry Martin (7). Through that I was able to find the record of his marriage to Jean Hogg. Nothing else yet - George is a more common name than Henry and so more difficult to track down. There is nothing about a George Martin living in Alloa or Clackmannanshire in the relevant period, so his family may have lived elsewhere at that time.
