Contributor's comments:  I am the great great grandson of Richard H. MARTIN. All of these people and their families lived in Lincoln Co. Missouri with the earliest being born there in 1826. I have postively identified 6 of them and tentavely two others. I would like to know the names of the other people in the picture. The number preceeding a name is the picture number.
