William Allen Martin, Company G, 65th Georgia

I will be bringing my 89 year old Mother to McGavock this month and wanted to find William Allen Martin (her Great-grandfather) of Henry County, VA.  He was a member of Co F, Smith’s Legion  of the 1st Georgia, Partisan Rangers.

    My husband, Ralph Treadaway, is a direct descendant of William Allen Martin. Lt. Martin was in the 65th GA at the time of his death. He was born in Henry County, Virginia – not Henry County, Georgia. He came to Georgia ca. 1853. He married Clarissa Hicks, also of Henry County, Virginia.
    He was Ensign/1st Lt., carrying the flag when killed. Recently the flag has been found and donated to the Civil War Museum in Kennesaw, Georgia.

    William Allen Martin was also my grandmother’s great grandfather. I hope you found his grave. My grandmother, her nephew, and her brother visited the grave sit years ago. What I know of William Allen Martin is he was the flag bearer for his regiment I think as he was one of the tallest men in the regiment. He was shot and died at the battle of Franklin.
