19  CUMBERLAND HEIGHTS

February 18,1896--The injunction to replenish the earth has been faithfully followed by John Martin, colored, of District 13 of this county. To a Leaf-Chronicle reporter today he gave a few bits of the history of himself and family, that is in a “fatherly” way.
Martin, who for years has driven his ox team to and from the city, is fifty-four. He has been married four times, but there were three children only born of the first three unions. In the stirring times of February 1865, he married his present wife, and to them have been born 21 children-15 boys and 6 girls thus making Martin the father of 24 children, 9 girls and 15 boys, while his present wife, who is 46, is the mother of twenty-one children within 31 years time, as last night she presented the dusky Benjamin with another girl. As far as heard from Martin and wife, and Martin especially, hold the record for prolificness in this county, or for that matter in this entire section. Martin and family should be placed on exhibit at the Tennessee Centennial. The baby was named Laveta Haidee Martin.
