Here's a recent comment from one of the other Martin Hall posts...___Anonymous said... While papers mentioned James E. Martin as being the brother of Bradley Martin, I believe that was an error in reporting that got repeated in different newspapers. In reality he wasn't related. He was the son of a John Martin and Louisa Merrill. Bradley Martin's parents were Henry Martin and Anna Townsend. Note that he doesn't appear in any censuses with Henry Martin family (1850,1860,1870) in which all of the siblings of Bradley Martin appear. Nor is there any mention of the Bradley Martin relationship at his son, James E Martin Jr's wedding to Gladys Robinson. And there is no mention of James E. Martin in any news coverage of the Bradley Martins. August 22, 2013 12:46 AM
Judging from the interior photographs it appears the Bradley Martins had a better decorator than did the James Martins. Regarding the exterior – is it just me or is the way the service wing juts out in front of the house, blocking the view when entering the porte cochere, really awkward?
